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.

s: a bit lacking on the aroma but everything else about this beer makes up for it.
t: very chocolate/vanilla forward, you definitely get the adjuncts pdubs used here. I only get a bit of heat at the end of the sip, otherwise goes down like chocolate milk.
f: classic creamy milk stoutness, silky sticky.
overall, awesome will revisit. pdubs is the real deal brewery right here in Chicago. find it. drink it. (408 characters)

Incredibly smooth and delicious this beer doesn't even hint at the fact that it's double digit ABV. Great chocolatey taste, pleasant aroma I plan on picking up an extra bottle for the cellar post-haste. I might be presumptuous in saying this right now, but I believe this is the best of the stouts Pipeworks has made. (317 characters)

22oz bottle, batch #214-215, no date, copyright 2013. Pours black with a smaller-sized tan head. Smells of cocoa, earthy hops, and vanilla. Great taste of cocoa, vanilla, roasted malts, hops, and lactose and has a slight bit of sweetness. Low-medium carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol presence. The cocoa and hops remind me of Bourbon County Brand Stout. Overall, lots of flavor and an enjoyable milk stout. (423 characters)

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Much darker than its little brother. Oily black. Nothing by way of a head.

Smell - Really chocolatey. Fudge syrup. Some caramel malts.

Taste - Still really chocolatey, but with some depth. Molasses character comes through as well. I don't get a whole lot of lactose from this one. A little sweet, though.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Slick and coats the mouth. Medium heavy.

Overall - Better than Jones Dog, but mostly because of all the chocolate in it. (516 characters)
