Fantastic aroma. Jet black in color and a very sweet taste. Stays on palate long after its swallowed. Great finish, great beer.

Pours a coffee black with little to no head that looks like it might have been brown in the right light. Has some serious sweetness in the nose, just like a doughnut shop. Flavor is a bit different though, not detecting much doughnut, but definitely a good bit of sugary sweetness in there as well as a bit of a tart fruitiness. Carbonation is very soft, and the thickness is incredible. Definitely like a meal beer and a sipper at that. Alcohol is hidden well but it definitely warms up the loins.

DocLock (8570) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Bomber from Whole Foods PM. Pours dark blackish brown withh tan head. Nose is cacao, bready dark malt, molasses. Tastes rich, with flavors of cacao, dark malt, molasses, and some soy saucy tartness late. Smooth yet a bit bitter at the end. More like a blackberry tart than a glazed doughnut.

I had this in Myrtle Beach with a Cuban sandwich and was not disappointed. Coffee tasting, chocolate aroma, and a smooth finish that left me super-impressed for a heavy Imperial. I imagine it's not as good in a bottle, but on tap it was great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Art (2309) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Dark brown pour. No head. Aroma is tons of raisins and figs. Not a whole ton of roast. Maybe some chocolate. Taste is sweet without much underlying flavors. Medium thick mouthfeel. Not getting any doughnut.

The_Osprey (3443) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell. Black with a small brown head. Aroma is chocolate, treacle, bourbon. Doughnuts too I suppose, since they’re mentioned. Body is medium, smooth, rounded. Taste is sweet molasses and soy sauce. Has that meaty sweetness of the others in the series, but less of it. Chocolate and prune. Finishes with ash, spice and booze. A nice slow sipper if a little one dimensional and sweet. Good.

Turtles (593) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2015
650ml bottle from Systembolaget, bought in September 2014. Black with a creamy tan head. The aroma has oaked aromas, with sweet biscuits and candies. Mild carbonated with a thick, creamy mouthfeel, full body. Very deep and rich flavor, caramel, oak, vanilla, brownies, almond, chocolate, coffee and much more. Incredible depth in taste and nose. Forget the 11.5% you just want more.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours black with a nice looking tan head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and liquorice. Flavour is sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is sweet, dark chocolate and warming alcohol.

McNeillR (1778) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Murky bright brown, decent glint but fairly opaque - greasy tan lacing and thin ringed head. Very sweet, not really overly roasty nose - peppery perhaps. Initial taste is loose greasy roast, not overly bitter and tang of cola nut sweetness. Greasy enough mouthfeel but holds a bit better than the others, crusty on the linger. Finishes seedy sweetness, gritty bitter.

Bottle thanks to Tad. Black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, slightly roasty, caramel. Taste of chocolate, licorice, roasty. Quite sweet.
