3.11/5  rDev -25.6%

Tan head with some lace. Color is nearing black.

Flavor profile: tons of syrupy chocolate. A lot of roasted malt with coffee notes. Caramel and toffee. Huge malt bomb. It is very sweet. I don't really get the doughnut flavors in this beer. It's just very sweet and cloying.

Mouthfeel: tons of roast. Full bodied. Ends with chocolate syrup aftertaste.

Overall, kind of a gimmic beer. I really didn't enjoy it compared to the other ones I have had. Just too sweet for me. I wouldn't buy this one again.

4.13/5  rDev -1.2%

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.
