Notes/Commercial Description:
Jones, the lovable pup, has returned to his throne. This creamy, chocolatey, milk stout with vanilla added is tasting rich, velvety, and delicious. It is the perfect brew to enjoy while cozying up to an episode or twenty of your favorite sophisticated cable drama.

650ml bottle, batch 312-313, poured into a Pipeworks snifter.


The beer pours a deep, jet black color, hues of cola brown around the rim of the glass with a thin, half finger of mocha colored head that has low retention and leaves no film or lace. The aroma is simple, bittersweet baker's chocolate, light vanilla, rich roasted grain, a touch of lactic creaminess and some mild stone fruit notes. The flavors mirror well, a bit of vanilla up front, strong chocolate, lightly bitter, lightly sweet, a touch of roastiness with the malts and a hint of stone fruit. Simple, balanced and executed, perhaps a bit too balanced and simple, it doesn't strike me as the most exciting or interesting beer. The mouthfeel is nice, coating, soft and smooth, carbonation is a bit higher than expected, but it's not abrasive or prickly and the finish is clean and easy.


Verdict: A simple, but balanced and enjoyable stout from Pipeworks. The ABV is hidden well and for a bigger beer, this is quite easy to drink, but it almost works against itself as nothing really leaps out off the tongue. Definitely a nice stout for the cold weather.

Out of a bottle into my tulip. Trade from Kevinpitts (thanks my friend!)
A – Black on pour with a half finger of tan head that quickly dissipated and leaves almost no lacing.
S – Light roasted malts and sweet chocolate.
T – Roasted malt, milk chocolate, cream, brown sugar, vanilla. Touch of coffee bitterness. Alcohol at the end.
M – Creamy and smooth. Medium carbonation. Slick on the palate. Leaves a great aftertaste.
O – Another great Pipeworks brew. Tasty and slightly sweet.

Pipeworks Game of Jones

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a CBS snifter. Served at cellar temperature.

A) Basically black... A dark brew with a nice frothy tan head. Nice retention, and some lacing too.

S) Light roast, lactose, chocolate and caramel. There's something else on the nose, but I couldn't place it. I like it though... I even asked my wife to give this a whiff. She said, "It smells like beer." I was like, so are you telling me if I gave you a Miller Genuine Draft and this, they'd smell the same??? Whatever, no need for an argument.

T) This tastes great... I mean, this has a flavor that is almost like it's been aged in bourbon barrels. There is some chocolate here, some caramel sweetness, and vanilla bean. I can't believe this is 10 percent. Really nice aftertaste. This is a flavor to savor. Yes indeed...

M) Soft and supple... A rich full bodied brew, with light carbonation. A pleasing aftertaste enhances the mouthfeel as well.

O) Pipeworks continues to impress. A unique and tasty brew, that I would gladly drink again.
