Notes / Commercial Description:
"I don't think these aliens are thaaat bad. What's that you ask? They don't like you? They keep trying to abduct you? I mean maybe we've all just been brainwashed by Hollywood alien invasion movies and the Pipeworks Abduction series into thinking aliens just want to abduct us. Has anyone even tried to talk to them? Here, I'll go bring them a Pipeworks Mocha Imperial Stout with coffee and rich chocolate. This beer is amazing. Yeah, and then I'll make small talk about the new Star Wars trailer."
- Jeff's last words before being encased in choconite.

Batch 577-580
22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep black color with a foamy/bubbly khaki colored head that quickly reduces to leave just a ring around the edge

S- smells of dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, mocha coffee, whipped vanilla cream, toasted marshmallow

T- opens with dark roasted malt mixed with mocha espresso, followed by dark chocolate & vanilla, toasted marshmallow and caramel. The finish gives a hint of dark fruit with a linger of coffee and vanilla

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a slightly creamy finish

O- all of the elements are there and pretty drinkable, nice stout

The beer poured black with a dark head. It smelled of light chocolate and not too much else. The beer tastes very similar to the smell. The beer is carbonated and does not linger. Overall the beer wasn't as chocolatey as I thought it would be, but it was good.

Another great edition in the abduction series.

The appearance is pitch black with a tan head that dissipated quickly and left a good amount of lacing.

The aroma is big chocolate and coffee along with some dark fruits. Also espresso comes through.

The taste follows the nose with espresso coffee and chocolate up front along with some roasted bitterness.

The palate is medium plus with a lingering bitterness that lingers well.

Overall this is another excellent entry in the abduction series.

Nice deep brown color. Smell is roasted malts and off smell. Taste is almost vegetal. Souring. Obviously infected. Couldn't drink more than 2 oz. Poured bottle. Wasted beer.
