Served in a snifter at cellar temp

A - pours an opaque jet black, finger of dark head which fades almost immediately

S - honestly not much here, little bit of coffee, tiny bit of vanilla, and some stale crackers

T - wow, this beer really redeems itself here from the aroma. Coffee forward, subtle vanilla, chocolate, solid maltiness

M - smooth. Goes down waaay too easy for 10.5%

O - aside from an almost off-putting aroma, this is fantastic. not sure of the disconnect here, but the rest definitely makes up for it. another great brew from Pipeworks.

A: midnight body, finger oatmeal head, solid lacing

S: big coffee roasted, strong vanilla, hint of chiles, boozy

T: same as the nose, very nice malt middle
mild spice bit, rather boozy vanilla finish

M: med/heavy body, creamy/smooth mouth

O: Another extremely strong offering from Pipeworks.
I should lay down a bottle and share with worthy friends.

Coffee and vanilla? Did I get the wrong beer?

This stout's primary flavor is of chilies.

Aside from the switcheroo, this is a very tasty Imperial stout. I was hoping for something a little sweeter and more mellow but the surprise was not a let down.

Overall- It's very good- certainly above average. And I might buy another bottle or two, depending on what else is available, but it's not one I'd pick up on every trip to the store.
