Served in a shaker pint glass.

Who knows what darkness lurks in the hearts of beer drinkers? Anyway, this stuff pours a dark midnight sienna topped by a finger of wan sandstone foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, dark chocolate powder, light coffee, and a hint of treacle. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a touch of toasted oats. The body is a hefty-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a somewhat thick-ish feel. Overall, a pretty solid stout, nothing to write home about, but I could see drinking this again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-Clearish brown when pouring, two finger brown head that doesn't last long.

S-Roasted malt, chocolate, some oats, coffee isn't really there.

T-Starts with roasted malt, tad bit of chocolate and oats. that is about it. Not much else.

M-Medium in body, slightly watery, not much carbonation. Some alcohol heat.

O-Not sure that this beer needed to be over 10%, Pipeworks makes some amazing beers but this one is only ok. But glad I was able to try it, always love Pipeworks stuff.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Batch number reads 238 242 243.

A- Pours black with little to no head. Not much else to say here.

S- Chocolate and coffee is apparent on the nose, as well as an almost licorice-like aroma. Weird.

T- Sweet with notes of chocolate and coffee, as in the smell.

M- Medium bodied, light carbonation, alcohol noted but not overly apparent.

An average offering from Pipeworks, lesser on the totem pole compared to the other fantastic beers I've had from them.
