Pipeworks Coffee Break Abduction.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a CBS snifter. Served at cellar temperature.

A) Coffee black with a nice tan head. The head had better retention than I anticipated, as this slowly settled to a collar. This has some feet.

S) Fresh ground coffee, roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla bean, and a splash of milk. Very nice aroma...

T) Follows the nose... This beer has a pleasant sweetness, but the fresh coffee and perhaps a little hops give it enough balance for my tastes. The drinkability is off the charts. The 10.5% ABV is ridiculously well hidden.

M) A soft supple full bodied brew with lighter carbonation. This is so smooth. You combine the smoothness with the hidden alcohol, and this goes down with dangerous ease. Nice aftertaste too.

O) Quite frankly.... I need more Pipeworks beer in my life. Enjoyed this start to finish.
