I think I've already reviewed this beer, in case I'm wrong I'll review any way...

Pours ebony with much thickness & effervescence, 3 fingers of mocha colored head. Average head retention & slightly better lacing

S: Cocoa, roastyness & coffee, plus boozeyness (3.75)

T: Follows the nose, some dryness & doughnuts up front. Vanilla, a little booze & roastyness as this warms, along with chocolate & dryness. Finishes dry with cocoa & doughnuts (4.0)

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, warming (4.0)

Pretty good, but give me biscotti break any day, a sipper to be sure (3.75)

22 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention is good, and there's a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, coffee, and some molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some vanilla and doughy/bready malt. But yeah, it tastes like what I imagine a chocolate/coffee doughnut would be. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's coating and creamy with moderate carbonation. The 11.5% ABV is pretty well hidden! I think it's a pretty good overall brew, it's sweet tasting, but not as sweet as I expected it to be. There's a good balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Definitely worth a try, I wouldn't mind picking up another bottle of this soon.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing black in the glass, with a thin light brown head with good retention with light lacing. Nice aroma of chocolate and dark toasty malt, very much like a high quality dark chocolate doughnut. Flavor also emphasizes chocolate, with a definite cake like element; baker's yeast. Chocolate glaze, eggy brownies, vanilla, hints of coffee. Complex, but in the chocolate / cocoa universe. Good medium creamy body. A flavorful, chocolate forward imperial stout that is very nicely integrated. It may just be the power of suggestion, but I did detect cake doughnut flavors in this stout. Creamy and rich, this is a great addition to an already well loved series of stouts. ABV completely and dangerously covered.
