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.

Kevinpitts to thank again for this one. Poured into my tulip.
A – Root beer brown pour with about a finger of creamy, tan head. Settles down quickly but left nice lacing.
S – Vanilla first with traces of chocolate, coffee and mocha.
T- Espresso like big coffee up front. Bold. Tasty. Roasted malts and a deep chocolate taste follows. Nice touch of vanilla and cream. Nice bitter bite at the end.
M – Smooth and creamy on the palate. Low carbonation.
O – Wonderful. Pipeworks needs to distribute to Florida or I will be driving my man Kevin nuts. This is right up my taste alley. Love the coffee and chocolate taste. Despite the ABV I drank this down like a Dos Equis on a hot summer day.

True to Pipeworks form, right on the brink of over the top but great in an in your face way. Sweet chocolate milk with a little coffee poured in. Leaves me craving a little thicker mouthfeel. Otherwise, very good.

The Mocha Abduction is a solid stout. It leans more towards coffee than chocolate and I did not pick up much vanilla as the label suggests. The beer poured an opaque black with tan head that left a spotty lace. The scent was roasty with a semi sweet hint. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it was quite tasty.

Exceptional chocolate and espresso flavor. The body is what makes this beer it reminds me of melted chocolate.
