Notes/Commercial Description:
Jones Dog pays homage to our very own brew dog Jonas. Our chocolate lab has been with us since the birth of Pipeworks and so we honor him with this chocolate milk stout. Brewed with cacao nibs and lactose milk sugar, we hope you'll find this brew as smooth and chocolately as the Jones Dog himself.

Initial batch was 6.5%.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.

another bottle from pipeworks that i picked up the last time i was in the chi-town. enjoyed from a pipeworks snifter. batch 101

a - brew pours a greyish black with a greyish tan head. the head was massive and filled at least half the snifter...definitely looks heavily carbonated. as the massive foam dissolved, it left chunky lacing clinging to the glass and seemed to never fully leave the beer.

s - milk chocolate with light roast and a porter like char.

t - milk chocolate malt. subtle roastiness. char.

m - wow, feels like a porter. very charry and zingy carb.

o - overall, not bad, not great.
