Bottle share thanks to Homer. Pours black. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Taste is smooth, not much coffee though. Actually way better than normal, harshness is gone. Tasty, but lacking coffee.

Advocate_Ames (442) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Pour dark with a sticky and gradually dissipating khaki head. The aroma is malty sweet and of roasted coffee, mild booze, vanilla notes, and cocoa. In the flavor it seems to have mirrored the scent. I picked on stronger intensities of vanilla, carmel malts, and semi bitter cocoa. The finish pleasantly lingers of rich mix ingredients and impacts my palate mildly. Overall worth having for any coffee stout fan.

cpetrone84 (1456) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2014
pour is cola colored with caramel colored head. Nose is heavy coffee roast, light vanilla and a strange mix of olive and chocolate that doesn’t go well together. Taste is a little better. More balanced, stronger chocolate fudge note with balanced coffee and hint of vanilla. Medium body and gentle carbonation with a linger coffee roast.

650ml Flasche. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein schwarzes Bier mit geringer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Schokolade, Kaffee. Geschmack röstmalzig süß nach Schokolade, Kaffee, leicht alkoholisch.

arminjewell (6294) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big coffee, dark fruit, roast, hints of vanilla, chocolate, slight earthy, grainy notes, nice. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, hints of vanilla, nice big coffee, espresso notes, hints of dark fruit in there, finishing bitter, dry, chocolatey.

Sweet with some nice coffee flavors. Hints of vanilla and cocoa. Not my favorite Pipeworks release, but good.

Dogbrick (8310) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Sample from batch #112 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. Inky black pour with a medium khaki head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of roast coffee, semi-bitter chocolate and caramel. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Good beer all around.

ASak10 (56) - Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Big fan of this beer. Batch 66, had it in the cellar for a few years. Amazing stout, really taste the vanilla followed by the coffee. Like drinking a vanilla latte almost. Really smooth, really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chocolate, coffee, roasty, vanilla, smoke, black, brown foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, creamy, thick feel, oily feel, soft carbonation, long finish. Pretty darn good coffee stout, one of the more creamer coffee stouts out there, like the vanilla behaves as a creamer to the coffee. Seek out if you love coffee.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours opaque black, little red on the edges, and a small fizzy tan head. A lot of molasses sweet dark fruits on the nose, brown sugar, vanilla bean, roasty coffee, and milk chocolate. Bitter, dark coffee and dark fruits up front on the taste, dark chocolate, brown sugar and caramel, toasted coconut, and ripe fruit. Really tasty, though the coffee seemed very muted.
