Glass Used: Pint
Appearance: A chocolate malt colored foam, almost three fingers thick, floats atop the porter. Minimal lacing; just a trail above the surface.
Smell: Wow. Dark chocolate and donut aromas fill the nose. Roasted malts tease the backend. For me, it's like a chocolate glazed old-fashioned donut. The amount of donut essence in this beer is astounding. It also makes me crave chocolate glazed old-fashioned donuts to dunk in this.
Taste: Chocolate donut all the way, along with the roastiness of the malt. A pleasing bitterness finishes each taste but nothing that over lingers. What does stick around is the sweetness of the cakey donut flavors.
Mouthfeel: A very thick and sticky consistency that leaves a lip smacking effect. Creamy and medium bodied. Very welcoming to take another gulp of this tasty treat.
Overall: This is the best dessert like beer I've had to date. Easily able to finish the entire bomber by myself. The flavors are well done and very balanced. Definitely recommend if you like sweet but not overly sweet (ST's Creme Brulee) offerings.

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.
