Pours dark black in color slightly thick. One finger tan head that dissipates quickly

Nose has coffee notes chocolate and a good vanilla presence. Fair amount of dark fruit like complexity. Malt is nice and rich and a hint of roasted malt is also detectable

Taste has a big coffee and chocolate presence, vanilla following shortly after. Finishes with rich roasted/charred malt. Super tasty and super rich.

Mouthfeel has good carbonation. Not to thick, perfect rainy day beer.

Beer #5 of my DIY Chicago care package.

Perfectly black body. Minimal tan head.

Aroma of coffee, with milk, chocolate, and hint of vanilla.

Taste is big coffee, chocolate, milk from both the coffee and chocolate, and a smidgen of vanilla in the finish.

Smooth and slick and not quite oily full mouthfeel.

Not one of Pipeworks offerings that was on my Chicago shopping list, but after failing to find those in the two Binnys I had a chance to visit, this makes for a damn ine consolation prize.
