Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate coffee aroma. Medium to heavy chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good sweet beer.

From a 22 ounce bottle. Light stout with some lactose, chocolate, and cocoa. Thin body overall. Nice.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of light roasted malts, chocolate, light coffee, dough, and a light bitterness. Flavor the same. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

Reynolds314 (2385) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours a brown black translucent pour with minimal head. Aroma is cocoa, earth, and grainy. Taste is moderate sweetness with no hops or anything really balancing. A bit watery for the style but not bad.

Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. A black pour out of the bottle with a huge fluffy and fizzy tan head. There’s a chocolaty aroma here, with plenty of lactose, lightly toasted grains, and some oats. Very active, prickly carbonation. Sweet chocolate, vanilla, and lactic flavors. Also some slick caramel in the body. There’s definitely a strong Hershey bar or chocolate milkshake thing going on here. A bit too sweet for me; light roast but not enough to keep up with the sweetness. The alcohol doesn’t show at all and despite the sweetness, and high(er) carbonation, I still thought this was a pretty solid beer.

Bomber. Pours dark brown with copies khaki head, almost to a fault. If your not careful you'll get a glass full of foam. Roasts aroma. Chocolate, roasted flavor throughout. Somewhat thin body for a milk stout. Good, not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black pour. White heAd nutty chocolate taste. Sweet. Good. I like tastes like a Hershey kiss.

Looks like an average stout. Smells like mediocrity. Taste is pure Tootsie Rolls, yet somehow stops before becoming too sweet. Hey, it's not awful, and that's a huge win for Pipeworks.

Pours black with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is of roasted malt, sweet chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla with a roasty, sweet finish. Solid stout

Pours a Derek black color with a nice java colored head. Nose is all chocolate, malt and sweet. Taste is chocolate, malt and coffee, with a pleasing sweet taste. Finish is semi dry, sweet and ends with the same tasty flavors. Gotta love Pipeworks, via Archer Liquors, Chicago. Quaff Score 8 / 10
