LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Appearance: Pours black with a sudsy tan ring around the edges.

Aroma: Herbal hop nose, coffee roast, light wet dog.

Taste: Herbal and citrusy hops, bitter chocolate/bitter black coffee, chocolate orange. Alcohol fairly hidden.

Mouthfeel: Slick, full bodied, a little oily. Modest carbonation.

Overall: A pretty tasty hoppy stout, probably the best one Iíve tried to date. Iím starting to pick up on Pipeworks house character across all their stouts too.

ICEatALAMO (941) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma is nice and malty, chocolate. The taste has subtle hops, but mostly just a roasty malt imperial stout, but good for one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (1940) - Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Ed. Oily, super black pour with a fine bubbled, deep mocha foam. Aroma of plentiful dark malt, roasted barley, bitter cocoa beans, ashy hops, a touch of charred bitterness & woodsy notes with just a kiss of dried, dark fruit in the back. Taste is bitter chocolate... weíre talking 100% cacao, super-dark & roasty cocoa notes with a touch of dry coffee beans. Thereís a very faint milkiness that comes around mid-palate but the sweetness aspect is very small compared to the roast of this bad boy. Hint of anise in the finish with a lingering, bittersweet cocoa note on the palate. Lovely, creamy mouth feel. A very nice stout.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, black licorice, espresso, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with just a hint of orange highlights around the edges of the glass. It had a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with dark chocolate, molasses, and black licorice. He finish has roasted espresso, pine, light citrus hops, and a hint of vanilla. Itís medium-full bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel.

kkleu357 (299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2014
Great dark heavy body. Very carbonated. Not too keen on the smell. Wet musty aroma. Ooo, but tastes great. Over the top hopped stout is accurate. Dark chocolaty taste with a punch of hops. Yummy.

deekyn (1201) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 28, 2014
A- pours a thick cola brown with two fingers of medium tan head with pressence. Good lacing. S- cheap chocolate, tobacco, coffee grounds, pine resin, malts, muddled citrus, vegetables, chalk. Relatively heavy at first, but lightens on the back end while relying more heavily on the hop notes. M- medium oily and lightly sticky body that has a bitter sweet light to medium palate. Decent carbonation. T- chocolate, pepper, coriander, and coffee at first. Malts and roasted grains become more prominent on the mid palate. Hops come next , with pine resin, citrus and some grassy notes. Ending is sustained, dry and bitter with lingering chocolate, chalk, mild grapefruit and some mineral water.
