Fresh bottle. Pours thick black with caramel border. No head. Aroma is coffee and vanilla. Also Hershey's chocolate. Lots of coffee in the flavor as well as vanilla and some cocoa. A strange background sweetness I can't identify. Creamy and smooth. Lots of carbonation. Great beer.

Bottle. Not much coffee in the nose compared to the regular abduction. Flavor is similar and very much like the regular but without the harshness and tartness. I actually prefer this to the regular hut there is not much coffee. Overall a solid stout but would buy guess they added coffee to it if you didn’t tell me. Batch 112

beechner224 (724) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2014
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 (446) - 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 (1467) - 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.

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 (8507) - 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.
