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.

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.
