3.74/5 rDev -10.5%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Black with a big khaki head. Medium collar. Nice surface wisps.
Smell - Coffee. Sharp coffee aroma. Sweet chocolate. I don't get anything reminiscent of a doughnut.
Taste - Sweet chocolate. Caramel. Coffee. Some vanilla. Pretty tasty, really. The finish is bitter coffee.
Mouthfeel - Bitter coffee. Sweet. A little boozy. Some sharp flavors from the coffee.
Overall - I don't get the doughnut thing, but it's a good beer.

In a teku glass the beer was a black color with a small tan head.
Strong coffee aroma, some chocolate. A sweet background.
Very nice taste. Strong coffee/chicory. Semisweet chocolate. A bit of booze. Very sweet background.
Full-bodied. Dark and mysterious.
Very good beer.

Served on tap in a wine glass at Tørst in Brooklyn, NY.
A - Thick silky close-to-black appearance. Little less than a finger of head that disappeared fairly quickly. Stuck nicely to the side of the wine glass it was served in.
S - Coffee, toast, caramel, fresh dirt, and of course, glazed doughnuts.
T- Tasted a lot like a slightly sweeter Parabola without bourbon. Heavy and boozy. Slight taste of dates or prunes or raisins. A bit of toast. Slight sugary quality with a strong black coffee. Booze is decently hidden, but still apparent.
M - Thick but not hard to drink. Definitely a sipping beer. Felt great going down after a massive steak dinner.
Overall - Really good stuff. A bit complicated for an Evil Twin brew, but I think that is why I liked it. Another reviewer called it on par with biscotti break. I would agree with him/her.
Bottom line: if I saw this on the shelf of a store in California, I would pick up a bottle or two, no question.
