22oz bomber shared with a friend, pours opaque black with a tall, creamy, tan colored head that holds excellent retention and leaves some lace at the top of the glass on its way down. Aromas are sweet stout-like with cream, chocolate, slight roastiness, very sweet though. Tastes are sweeeet! Milk chocolate, rich, decandent, dark fruits, slight smokiness, some roast; really nice chocolatey flavors. Full bodied and very smooth, creamy, ample carbonation; alcohol is warming. Overall, very solid American Imperial Stout but the sweetness gets to be rather cloying at times.

Pours a black color, with a mocha colored near finger of head. Some lace. The aroma has a touch of alcohol, roast, slight anise, cocoa, light coffee beans, hint of vanilla. Slightly bitter piny hops on the taste, cocoa powder, coffee, roast vanilla bean
, anise and a root beer note. Full body, creamy, slick and coating.
Fine Imperial stout, flavorful and drinkable.

Pours a pitch black with loose brown head. The head fizzles out quickly. The beer is opaque and looks to be viscous. The nose is intensely roasty with heavy chocolate, char, coffee, and an assertive green hop profile to follow. The taste is incredibly roasty up front with chocolate and more chocolate. This is countered nicely by an earthy hop profile that takes this imperial stout into a decidedly "hoppy stout" realm. The mouthfeel is big and heavy with mellow carbonation. I am impressed with Pipework's execution of both this and the coffee break variant. Both are worthy big time stouts.
