poured 22oz into chalice.

A - Cola black with a tan 2 finger head. Slowly fades and leaves a collar and nice lacing.

S - Notes of roasted malt, malted milt, sugar, chocolate, cocoa, and also subtle notes of vanilla and coffee.

T - This is on the sweeter side, but some of the roasted malts and coffee help break it up. Plenty of chocolate and cocoa along with hints of vanilla. It's a sipper and pretty good if you prefer sweeter stouts.

M - Smooth, creamy, and full bodied along with very nice carbonation.

O - Pretty good milk stout and it is almost akin to a milkshake loaded with flavors. A bit sweet so you it is better off shared with a friend.

Agressive Pour yields a nice mocha-khaki head with great lacing.

Smells of sweet lactose, vanilla bean, milk chocolate, biscuity malt, coffee backer.

Taste follows the nose well. Coffee comes more forward as the beer warms. Great balance amongst all the flavors. Reminds me of a Tiramisu (which is awesome)

Mouthfeel is luscious medium bodied with just enough carb to keep it interesting

Overall one of the best Milk Stouts I've had to date. Really glad I was able to find this and have it sent home. Between this and Ninja vs Unicorn I'm thoroughly impressed with Pipeworks

A-Black in the glass, not much carbonation, one finger brown head that doesn't last long.

S-Roasted malt, some dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee as well.

T-Rather chocolately, good deal of coffee as well. Nice vanilla rounds out the beer.

M-Lighter but very smooth.

O-The chocolate and vanilla go together very well with just enough coffee and roasted malt to give it a stout character.
