Notes / Commercial Description:
Jones Dog pays homage to our very own brew dog Jonas. Our chocolate lab has been with us since the birth of Pipeworks and so we honor him with this chocolate milk stout. Brewed with cacao nibs and lactose milk sugar, we hope you'll find this brew as smooth and chocolately as the Jones Dog himself.

Initial batch was 6.5%.

This beer poured out into my tulip with an unmanageable amount of head - surprising to me, and forced me to split my bomber into 8 ounce pours. Head was light tan and faded to little or no lacing. Aroma is almost typical - chocolate, maltiness, but I also got a big hit of what I can only describe as apple. That aroma faded as the beer got consumed. I couldn't get a handle on the flavor until the beer warmed up - in part because of the temperature, but also because of what I found to be way too much carbonation. Once those factors are considered, though, it's a nice smooth chocolate, with a little bitterness and a hint of coffee on the finish. All in all, a good offering from Pipeworks, but there are better chocolate stouts out there. I'd like to give the barrel aged version a try - I imagine that some of my issues with the beer would be resolved by letting it sit for a while in oak.
