look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

big thanks to mjohnson17 for hooking up the pipeworks love (and yeahnatenelson for the pipeworks glasses!!!)

batch #66

a - poured a deep ominous black with a finger of creamy tan head that was gone relatively quick but left a thin skin of head and a foamy ring on the surface. lacing was spotty.

s - WOWSERS!!!! fresh creamy gourmet coffee. milk stouty. smells outrageous. good milk chocolate notes. smells like a little slice of heaven.

t - big milk chocolate notes with gourmet coffee and cream and then a slap of hops and a burst of alcoholic heat on the finish. some dark fruit soaked in booze. lots of roast on the finish.

m - fairly hot...some bitter coffee roastiness.

o - overall, the flavor doesn't match the magic in the nose, but the taste is nice. fairly big beer. this bomber might be a bit of a chore, but i'm up for the challenge.

look: 3 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A - Jet black body with minimally visible carbonation. The lack of a head is my only gripe with this brew. I poured pretty vigorously and still barely anything.

N - Magnificent. Vanilla, Chocolate, Roasted Coffee.

M - Light, but with creamy deliciousness.

T - Up front you have sweet roasty coffee followed by vanilla and cocoa hints with a smoother than smooth finish.

O - The best stout I have had to date. Took Stones IRS's place. Again I wish the appearance was a little more pleasing but hey with the nose and taste being so outstanding I can deal with it.
