22 oz. bottle served in a CBS snifter. Batch #9.

A: Pours a dark black color with a thick and creamy tan head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a whispy cap and a thin collar.

S: Nice smells of smooth coffee, lacto sugar, milk chocolate and dry roasted malt making up the backbone. The vanilla is there in the background, but it doesn't show itself very much.

T: Raw coffee bean with a nice vanilla undertone is up front. Very sweet chocolate and vanilla in the middle. The finish is dry and roasty with some biscuit malts.

M: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation, almost prickly at times. The finish is a combination of sweet and roasty.

O: I don't like milk stouts, but I've really enjoyed the two offerings from the boys at Pipeworks so far. Nice balance between sweet and roast. I enjoyed this version better than the Jones Dog.

22oz bottle into a tulip. Batch #9.

A: Pours a rich brownish black with a small tan head.

S: Smells of coffee, chocolate, mild lactose, and thin vanilla.

T: Taste follows the nose, with coffee, slight chocolate and vanilla, and a bit of milkiness from the lactose. Everything is pretty mild and in balance.

M: Medium-bodied with light carbonation.

O: This tastes good.

A: Pours a deep dark brown with a nice big tan colored head of foam. Color is nice. Body is clean. Head is holding steady. I think lacing will tell the story here. Lacing is pretty nonexistent. Okay, got near the bottom of the bottle, and something very strange looking dropped in my glass. Not cool. Gonna drain pour. Can't see what it is -- so definitely not going to drink it. I only hope it was sediment.

S: Coffee aromas front-and-center. Smell is similar to Founders RIS -- only here I can't really tell if it's the coffee or roasted malts I'm smelling. Vanilla is holding steady over the dark chocolate. Not smelling any hops or anything like that, though. Not bad here.

T: Taste a little flat to be honest. Not tasting any quality malts. The coffee flavor comes and goes very quickly. I don't have a problem with that, but nothing really remains after that. It more or less taste like your average milk stout -- this vanilla is coming through now. We'll see how it continues to change and evolves as the brew warms. *Sweetness starting to comes through as beer warms. Tasting vanilla more, but that's not really pushing the score.

M: Felt a little flat at first. Maybe that's because it's not as creamy as I would have though. Medium body. Medium carbonation -- decently done. Not much chewiness. Honestly, pretty average feel for me.

O: Not exactly sure what I was expecting. When you're selling beer for $9 a bombers then you think it's going to be something special. And, this just isn't that. There is a little age of this -- not even a year, though. So, I expected the coffee flavor to be mild. What's left is pretty average for the most part.
