Think yourself entitled to some brief respite human? Think again! Our coffee version of Abduction Imperial Stout, uses local craft roast coffee from our friends at lpsento and whole vanilla beans, to take your away once more. Which, depending on your penchant for a probing may be just what you need. Beware the skies for this robust, richly flavored Latte Imperial Stout may. just. scoop. you. up...

Out of a bottle into my tulip. Picked up in trade from Kevinpitts (Thanks Kevin!)

A – Deep and dark brown on the pour with a finger of milk chocolate lacing that settles down nicely.
S – Roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and cream. Nice.
T – Just a nice roasted malt character out of the gate. Follows up with flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso, cream and molasses. Touch of trace bitterness that mixes with a cream like sweetness that balance each other nicely. Breathy alcohol at the end.
M – Medium to full bodied. Medium carbonation. Leaves a nice click creamy taste on the palate.
O – So this beer is all in my wheelhouse so I may be bias. I love beer and coffee and this mixes it very well. Nice strong coffee flavor that doesn’t overpower the beer. Even the person who doesn’t dig coffee will find something to like here. Just a fine brew all around. Pick this up if you can. You will not be sorry.

Been holding onto this for a while, its stout day, figured why not. thanks to iadler!

vintage 2013, figured to drink it before the coffee and vanilla dissapear, great choice. holy crap, is this beer delcious, everything comes together just right, coffee and vanilla fully present. Reminds me of founders breakfast stout buy im digging this more. vanilla teqlly brings it home. pipeworks is killing it, check this one out, even with a year on it!

Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Decent retention and poor lacing. Smells of oatmeal, coffee, sweetness from lactose, sweet malt, hops, hint of roasted malt, and alcohol. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, coffee, sweetness from lactose, hint of liquor, and a hint of hops. Overall, weak appearance, good aroma, body, and blend.
