"I don't think these aliens are thaaat bad. What's that you ask? They don't like you? They keep trying to abduct you? I mean maybe we've all just been brainwashed by Hollywood alien invasion movies and the Pipeworks Abduction series into thinking aliens just want to abduct us. Has anyone even tried to talk to them? Here, I'll go bring them a Pipeworks Mocha Imperial Stout with coffee and rich chocolate. This beer is amazing. Yeah, and then I'll make small talk about the new Star Wars trailer."
- Jeff's last words before being encased in choconite.

A sticky, sweet, boozy imperial stout with heavy coffee and chocolate notes. The coffee dominates the nose. Pours a deep dark, mocha color. Definitely amps up the sweetness to offset potential coffee bitterness. An excellent coffee imperial stout.

Exceptional chocolate and espresso flavor. The body is what makes this beer it reminds me of melted chocolate.

Batch 577-580. 22 oz. bottle poured into a Great Lakes snifter.

Appearance: Pours black with a thin light brown head.

Smell: Coffee, molasses, milk chocolate, roasted malt. Lacks the depth of coffee/chocolate aroma of, say, a FBS, and honestly comes off just a tad bit artificial at times, but overall still very solid.

Taste: Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt up front. Undertones of caramel malt. Nice bitter bite from the coffee on the finish. While the smell was a little lacking in depth, the flavor is definitely not. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, smooth, nice bit from the coffee on the finish. Medium carbonation.

Overall: While I wouldn't put this in the world class tier of coffee stouts, it's still very, very good.
