Pours a jet black with a thin, short-lasting brown foam head. Aroma is glazed chocolate doughnut - lots of chocolate, lactose, and some roast and booze. Flavor is sweet chocolate and lactose, light hints of roast and some alcohol. Has a chewy mouthfeel. I’m glad I finally got around to trying this. Excellent.

Black, brown head. Smell of dark malts, chocolate, roast, spices and what i would like to be drydoughness. :-) Heavy sweet, alot of dark malts, chocolate, some hints of soy sauce, roast, doughy flavors, rich and smooth. Moderate bitter finish. Very nice oily feel. A doughnut experience for sure!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
