4.23/5  rDev +6.8%

bottle picked up about an hour ago from binny's during my chi town visit. enjoyed from a plastic hotel cup. batch #140

a - brew pours black with a thin white milky head that hung out as a thin skin on the surface but didn't leave any noticeable lacing on the plastic.

s - roasted chocolate coffee with a healthy dosing of vanilla.

t - yum. really nice. coffee, chocolate and vanilla...exactly as the nose advertised, but in a much better state of balance than the vanilla heavy nose. quite good.

m - rich and creamy. this beer is the definition of silky. a bit thick.

o - feels like a dessert drink. very decadent chocolate and the coffee and vanilla really round this one out...super silk.

Wake up and smell the coffee. Big bold flavours, strong fresh coffee, lots of sweet cream,chocolate stout, all well integrated. Dark with enormous lasting head. Full mouthfeel, satisfying, and a meal in itself. Good drinkability. From Lakeview Liquors.

Extremely dark brown color. It has a flat appearance with no head to speak of.

Heavy scents of coffee and cocoa. I also pick up the occasional whiff of dank, which is odd for the style yet still enjoyable.

The coffee is huge in the flavor, too. The cocoa is muted. The bottle indicates vanilla, but it don't pick up much.

Good body to the mouthfeel but I was hoping for it to be a little more creamy and rich.

Another solid Pipeworks offering. It's not as good as coffee break abdication but still a recommended milk stout with a healthy dose of coffee.

a: black, tan slightly frothy 1 1/2 finger head.

s: chocolate, roasted malts. slight coffee

t: sweet chocolate tinged with a slight vanilla. coffee taste comes in midway through the finish

m: smooth, creamy. Light carbonation. medium body

o: very nice offering from Pipeworks. This has a strong coffee accent but not overly so. Easily drinkable and tasty, Can't ask for much more than that.

Poured into a large mug, it does the reverse cascade for about two seconds, has a head of tan foam for about a minute more. Soon enough there's no foam at all as it audibly fizzles away. Glassy obsidian surface.

Pleasant coffee and vanilla aromas, hazelnut and mild and well integrated. It has a light brownie sweetness as well.

Coffee is noticeable, fairly mellow with very little bitterness initially. Some light dry bitterness does come through in the aftertaste along with lingering vanilla traces. Mellow roast, easygoing flavors.

Smooth feel and light bodied, though somehow this is thinner and less creamy than Jones Dog... huh. Still it's pretty tasty.

Bottle: Poured a deep pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with medium retention and some light lacing. Aroma of dry coffee notes with light roasted malt is pretty intense. Taste is dominated by dry coffee notes without being too astringent and some nice creamy black chocolate notes. Body is quite full with light creamy texture with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed and quite enjoyable though I would have enjoyed this one even more if the vanilla had been more predominant.

3.38/5  rDev -14.6%

Pours jet black with a decent sized coffee colored head. No retention and just slight lacing down the glass.

Smells like milk chocolate with some light roast coffee. Can tell there is lactose in this.

More milk chocolate on the palate. Finishes grainy with some coffee notes. While sweet up front, the finish is a bit drier and bitter.

Fairly smooth mouthfeel although it feels a bit thin at times. Finish is slightly astringent.

Not the best beer I've had from Pipeworks. Would have liked to see a more complex flavor profile.
