22 oz bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a nice jet black with a darker tan head, about a finger high and no lace as it falls to a collar. The aroma is full of roasted chocolate and a huge blast of lactose. There is a light, yet distinct, glazed donut on the back end. The flavor is really roasty up front with a light chocolate and a huge blast of lactose. It's like you're drinking a glass of milk here. A light donut does show up late on the back end and brings a little nuttiness with it. The mouth feel is pretty good. Nicely carbonated with a lingeringly sweet, chocolate milk type of aftertaste. Not too shabby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från SB. Svart färg med brunt skum som försvinner fort. Doftar kakdeg, kaffe, choklad, farinsocker och alkohol. Smaken är söt med en torr eftersmak, rostade toner av kaffe, choklad, farinsocker och vanilj. Mycket gott!

Aroma is less doughnut than I would have thought, but it is still present. Also in the aroma is slight roast, brown sugar and booze. A faint red wine scent is present as well. Appearance is an easy 5. Dark brown/flat black, No head, what foam does originally appear is a very dark brown color. Taste is roasty, very creamy, sweet with some glazed doughnut showing through. Very slick and smooth palate; just enough thickness to stand up to the flavor and ABV. This was great. I had been avoiding it because I thought it would be too much of a niche beer, but it lived up to the hype and then some.

Deep brown like silly sauce, aroma is heavy with vanilla and cinnamon. Same in taste, which is fairly rich, with a sweet acrid note. $6/5oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle split two ways. Pitch black pour with a fairly big tan head. Nose has chocolate, vanilla and some light roast. Taste we sweet without being too cloying. Vanilla fudge and caramel with some savory notes. Delicious!

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.
