"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.

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

22oz bottle (Batch# 435/36/37) poured into a CBS oversized snifter.

A - Pours a super dark brown/near black color in the glass, brown highlights at the edge of the glass. A short 1/2 finger of pale tan/grayish head lingers briefly and leaves a short, foamy collar on the edge of the glass.

S - Mild aroma, plenty of chocolate, roasty coffee, a bit of licorice, a bit of booze.

T - Very coffee forward, deep and roasty. Fair amount of booze/alcohol with a bit of a warmish burn to it. Milk chocolatey smoothness/sweetness.

M - Rather full bodied with a lower carbonation that is a bit foamy and rather creamy overall. Roasty and coffee heavy throughout. A bit boozy - shows the 10.5% alcohol content - slows the pace of drinking on this, but isn't really distracting.

O - Overall, I like this imperial stout. One of the better in the Abduction series...having tried several of them now. This almost makes me think of it as an amped up Founders Breakfast Stout. Not as smooth as drinkable as the FBS, but I find the coffee character quite similar with more of a boozy kick.

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

Pours a diesel thick opaque black with a very thin caramel brown head.

Heavy on the dark chocolate, roasted malt nuttiness, and espresso.

A little too heavy on the chocolate, roasted malts are lacking, and coffee is dull.

Mouthfeel is thick on the heavy, like sipping a chocolate malt.

Overall this is decent, but I feel could have been better.

Thanks to Aaron for sharing this one!

Inky black with a naturally mocha tan tint to the foam on top. Flecks of spotty lacing around the edges.

Big vanilla and coffee aromas, slightly sweet with a coffee brownie impression.

Similar flavors, flavored coffee, mocha and vanilla notes are spot on. Light coffee bitterness, fudgy chocolate, lingering charred malt. Sticky on the lips. Body seems a little thinner due to the coffee addition. Overall it tastes great, definitely worth a try.
