4.46/5 rDev +16.4%
Appearance is pitch black with a one finger tan head.
Aroma is chocolate syrup, coco powder, chocolate truffle and slight roast notes.
Flavor is massive coco powder and chocolate.
Mild coffee and roasted notes on the back end.
Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Nicely balanced bitter notes.
Don't know how this beer isn't rated higher.

(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer has an inky jet black body with a thick creamy tan head that slowly pops away.
S- The aroma of cocoa nibs comes through even during the pour but turns more to tootsie rolls as it opens and they start to dry out.
T- The chocolate malt and cocoa nibs blend with some roasted notes underneath that grow inky and linger in the aftertaste. There is some green hops support that takes on a spicy quality as it warms.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a slightly creamy texture that is scrubbed away by the carbonation in the finish.
O- There is a big nib character that is not my favorite when it overpowers the other malt flavors and they never seem to really come back. There is a cigar ash quality to the char in the finish but it stays pretty soft and the mellow roasted malt flavors stay hidden.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Dark brown with brown edges. Some bubbles well up as I pour it. Medium collar and a thin layer of foam swirls around the surface.
Smell - Nutty and caramel malts. Chocolate and a deep roasted malt aroma.
Taste - The roasted malts are most prominent. A little bit of a cola character. Bitter chocolate. Some sweetness, a little bit of lactose. Burnt malt zing in the back end.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated, as always, from Pipeworks.
Overall - Run of the mill.

22oz bomber split with a friend poured into a Duvel tulip
A: Pours a murky deep, dark brown with a 1" bubbly tan head. Not too much lacing on this one.
S: After letting it warm up a bit you get a good bit of bitter super dark chocolate. A little bit of a tootsie roll type chocolate as well. Hints of sweetness but just a barely. Also a good bit of alcohol in the nose.
T: Taste follows the nose a fair bit. Bitter, malty chocolate. Alcohol on the palate as well. At 8.5% its not hot, but there's a rather strong alcohol taste. Pleasant hop bitterness on the finish, though just a bit.
M: Super creamy and smooth without being heavy. Feels great going down.
O: Overall pretty happy with this beer. Perhaps could be a bit more balanced with more rich chocolate flavors and toned down alcohol presence. Not in a hurry to buy it again, but would like to try it on tap.

Pours blackish brown, looks black in the tulip glass. Surface foam is a creamy textured caramel color, swirling and eventually fading into a veil on the surface. Spotty lacing hangs in the glass after each sip, slowly returning into the liquid.
Aromas of dark chocolate, mild coffee, malted milk balls, dulce de leche sweetness. Light and pleasant.
Medium bodied and lightly carbonated, it has a supple creamy feel, with nice chocolate and cream flavors that linger into the aftertaste. Light banana yeast esters, vague bitterness in the background at first, aftertaste of light roastiness. Overall a tasty Milk Stout, seemingly with more body and cacao sweetness than End Of Days.

22 oz. (1 pint 6 fl oz) bottle, batch #65, bottled sometime in 2012. Pretty excited, this is going to be my second stout from Pipeworks Brewing Co., and I enjoy the Pipeworks Abduction Coffee Break a lot, so expecting good things here.
Poured into a St. Bernardus Watou chalice.
A - Semi-aggressive pour yields about a finger of mocha colored head, comprised of tightly packed microbubbles, sitting on top of a luscious opaque black body. Vague cola brown notes noticeable near the top, when held under the light. Head dies out quickly.
S - Smell is of dark bitter coffee beans / malt roast, dark chocolate cocoa nibs, dash of vanilla presence, and some alcohol.
T - Wow, what a lovingly complex and subtle beer. Dark coffee bean roast, and some fruity hop bitterness up front, layer of carbonation, and then a pervasive chalky cocoa taste takes over your entire palate. That was just f**king lovely.
M - Feel finishes off somewhat bitter and chalky, with some chocolate remaining behind. Mostly clean & highly palatable.
Overall, another amazing beer from Pipeworks. So far, everything I've tried from them has been excellent, and I can't wait to continue exploring their other beers. A delicious stout, with a rewarding 8.50% abv that has got me toasted, this beer comes highly recommended.
