COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout brewed with Cacao, Vanilla, Coconut, and Almonds "Aw man, I got this one guy. He’s an alien. I was in this one place, real tropical, real cool, real classy, and he just scooped me up. He gave me this beer, it was savemylife good. These aliens were seriously killin’ it ALL DAY! Is it wrong for a grown man to kiss an alien full-on on the lips? Somebody check my pressure. DONE. It’s cool to be cool." We love Nick, and we love this beer too. Done.

Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Dark blackish pour. Lightly roasty, grainy, maybe some nut character. Sweet, caramel. No real nutty or toasty character.

First beer for me in 6 weeks. Chocolate nibs, marshmallow, and cashews on the nose and in the taste. Pretty good.

MacBoost (1290) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a jet black with a tan head. Strong aromas of caramelized nut sweetness. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of nuts, marshmallow, sticky sweet fudge (packers?), and moar nuts. Deez nuts! You ever had a Beer Nut brand peanut? That’s what this tastes like, in liquid form with added chocolate and marshmallows. Sweet. Borderline cloying but easy to drink and high boost. I liked it.

Shared with Zach on a hot miserable steamy humid Friday afternoon on the patio with a Cuban, pours a dark black pour with a java colored head. Nose is malty, with coffee and some sweetness. Taste is malty with cacao, mocha and roasted nuts, and is smooth and velvety. Finishes on the same tasting notes and just bathes the palate with smoothness and ease. Is there a flawless beer ? Thanks Archer, and thank you Pipeworks, amazing what one can miss without Pipeworks. Quaff Score 10 / 10

zgaier (1400) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bomber. Pours black with a brown head and sweet aroma of cocoa, vanilla, and coconut. Taste is delicious, tons of complex flavor, cocoa, vanilla, dark fruits, coconut that really comes throb in the finish, and coffee while creamy with almond milk flavor and a sweet, vanilla cocoa finish. Great brew

orangenblu62 (40) - Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours black with a tan head. Subtle sweet aroma. Sweet coffee taste with coconut undertones. Bitter coffee bite in the after taste. Really like this beer, but at 10.5%, something to be savored.

Ktwse (2014) - SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2014
Pours black with low frothy tan head. Aroma of chocolate malts, vanilla, muscovado, toffee. Loads of milk chocolate as well. Taste is sweet, vanilla, port barrel, milk chocolate. Slight off-flavors in the finish. Body is medium full, creamy with smooth carbonation.

kaser (2737) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Poured from 22oz bottle at home. Aroma of cocoa, nuts, malts and vanilla. The taste matches the aroma for the most part. Sweet and chocolate milky. Very sweet and tasty. Like a milkshake. Milky nuts. Yummy.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, some coconut, light vanilla and almond notes, and hints of dark fruits. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, but I was expecting better.

Bottle thanks to Rob. Pours a dark amber with no head. The aroma is spice and vanilla. Thin mouthfeel with nice spice, toffee and vanillla. Good.
