COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I am the sword in the barkness. I am the Chocolate watcher on the walls. I am the liquid fire that burns against the cold, the maltygoodness that brings the dawn, the rich stout to wake the sleepers. I am the brewery pup Jonas, wo guards these realms of men. I am Imperial Jones Dog, and in this Game of Jones... You pet or I whine.

This is a very boozy rich and sort of sweet double stout. Has a nice hopy bitter finish. Smells boozy. Pours black in color with a thick brown head. Had a bomber pour at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Purchased at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after a frigid 3 mile run on the day I cancelled cable, and Iím scared. I think this is one of the best bottle arts Iíve seen. Appearance is thick pitch black with a thin off white rim. Aroma is strong in cacao nibs, vanilla, lots of lactose and chocolate, very much a dessert beverage. Taste is pretty damn good, nice flavor, dark dark chocolate/cacao, great vanilla mixture, very much enjoyable. Iím a big fan of Pipeworks stouts, and this one does not disappoint.

Bottle shared at the DC Pre-Thanksgiving tasting. Thanks to Travlr. Poured a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Aroma was boooze, light chocolates. I joked that it had "more booze than there are saphires in Tarth." Not that boozy, but alcohol is apparent here. Roasted malt, chocolate, light vanilla notes.

Caramelized malt, with some roast. Brown pour with ok head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Not my thing - a little too syrupy for my liking. Bottle shared by Travlr.

Pretty damn good stout. Unfortunately, my boy, who I have never met, Superspak, has never had it. So I can not share his super rating with you.
