Notes/Commercial Description:
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you want to drink a dark, rich, delicious coconut and almond flavored beer. (Let's be honest, for us it's both...all the time.) We took our base Abduction and added cacao nibs, vanilla bean, toasted coconut and almond. The result is a deeply complex brew that will linger with you long after you're done drinking it. Delicious now but also a prime candidate for a prolonged rest in your temperature controlled catacomb of choice.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours with a thick texture. Comes out the bottle black and sits in the glass as so. Light dark brown head on just the edges of the glass. Very light active carbonation in the glass while drinking.

S: Upfront you get some of the coconut and almonds then you get some chocolate and roasted coffee. Very sweet aroma.

T: At first I get the vanilla character then fades into some of the coconut and almond. It is then followed by some chocolate. Pretty sweet on the tongue. Enjoyable tasting beer.

M: Really sweet, thick body. A little oily, but that's perfectly okay with me.

O: Do really enjoy this one, wish I drank a little sooner to get more of the coconut.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours pitch black with minimal tan froth.

(S)- Mild roast meets some raisin and cocoa. Subtle coconut in there as well.

(T)- Again, some mild chalky roast meets some subtle raisin and cocoa with an almond/coconut sweetness on the finish.

(M)- A smooth carbonation level with a pretty good balance to it. Not overly sweet but the kick of coconut adds a nice layer of complexity to this.

(O)- One of their better versions of abduction for me. Good coconut flavors with a good stout base.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Drank 7.5.14. Poured from a bomber, batch #383-385, into a tulip glass.

After months and months of reading about and following Pipeworks, I finally made it back to my hometown of Chicago, and made sure to purchase a few choice bombers. Having already gotten rave reviews from friends about their DIPA offerings, I wanted to start my experience with PW by tasting a few of their stouts. First up, Toasty Nut Abduction.

A: Pours jet black with a very dark, slow rising, mocha head visible only after a hard pour. Head fades quickly, leaving zero cap whatsoever, just a minimal ring to complement this completely opaque beer. Leaves no lacing, but coats the glass like motor oil, lingering long after the last movement. A great looking stout.

S: Sweet dark chocolate, strong almond notes, and a smooth vanilla underlay. Maybe I pick up a smidge of coconut, but with how sweet this beer smells, its hard for me to single it out. Of course it has coconut, but no need for that to scare you off if you don't like coconut (I don't)

T: Heaps of sweet dark chocolate, earthy almond/coconut flavors, vanilla accents and finishes with a strong, dark fruit bitterness from the cacao nibs.

M: Thick and sweet. Goes down like oil, clinging to your teeth and tongue long after tasting. Mild carbonation at first, quickly supplanted by a full/creamy body, with a snappy bitter finish.

O: Two words can be used to describe this beer. A lot. A lot to look at, a lot to smell, a alot to taste, and a lot to handle. Big, sweet, and thick... but hides its 10.5% ABV extremely well behind a mountain of sweetness and a scent you can pick up from across the room. A definite recommend to any Stout drinker.
