COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Little Chocolate Doughnuts is a porter with an appealing,, semi-sweet, not-so-bitter, chocolate malt character. This beer was actually "dry-doughnut-ed" in the firkin for a little touch of "HOT NOW" goodness! Brewed by John Pinkerton & Chris Lady.

Poured dark with huge chocolate aroma. Tasted like those candy malt balls drenched in artificial chocolate flavored chocolate syrup. I wish I could be more positive.

On cask 1/26/08 at the Atlanta Cask Ale tasting: Barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of rich creamy milk chocolate and some dark caramel complexity reminds me a lot of Youngs Double Chocolate Stout. Body starts creamy and lightly sweet with lots of milk chocolatey flavor and subtle bittering hop balance with a doughy semi-sweet finish. A very interesting and well made brew.

From a sampler on 10/25/08. Dark in appearance. Sugary and boozy aroma. Taste dominated by sweet milk chocolate with some roasted notes. Not that complex, but I love chocolate. Too bad they ran out before I could score a full pint.

Pours an almost opaque black color with a very light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, dough, and vanilla. Flavor is roasty, dough, vanilla, chocolate, and a light bitter finish. This was an awesome beer.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Appearance: Black body topped by a thin, wispy khaki-colored head. Smell: Damned if it don’t smell like lil’ chocolate donuts. Taste: Damned if it don’t taste like lil’ chocolate donuts, too! Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation. Drinkability: This is just wonderful.

Cask @ ATL Cask Ale Fest ’08. Tons of chocolate in the nose and on first sip. Reminds me of Rogue Chocolate Stout. Chocolate and vanilla dominant. It does taste like a chocolate doughnut. One of the better beers at the festival.

Cask @ Atl Cask Ale Tasting 2008. Very suprised by this beer as I haven’t had anything good from this brewery ever. Second favorite brew @ the festival. Nice chocolate, malt, and vanilla balance, with an edge towards the chocolate.

SpringsLicker (3132) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. Pours dark brown with a typical cask ale head. More of a specialty beer than a porter, the name describes it all. More doughnut aroma than flavor, but it followed true to the name all the way. A bit light for a really good porter, but probably a very good vehicle for the doughnut aspect.

Cask Ale @ Sweetwater. Aroma of this brew was of chocolate doghnuts, strange enough. Flavor was less chocolate, but along the same lines of the aroma. Mouthfeel was too thin for me, and the finish was very light. Not quite what I look for in a porter.
