End of Days is our tribute to the coming of the end... of the Maya calendar! Weve aged this milk stout with cacao nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and ancho chilies. The result is a rich chocolaty stout, with just a hint of spice. We hope youll enjoy this beer before the End of Days.

Pours a nice dark roast coffee color with a frothy off white head. A nose of mild spice and spiciness. I dig the mouthfeel on this not super thick and rich just a great medium bodied stout. Flavor is full of tobacco and cinnamon, chile heat comes in towards the end and sticks around. The spice definitely builds as you go and Im into it. Pipeworks is two for two for me and I cant wait until they are three for three.

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of roasted malt, fruitiness, cinnamon and a hint of metallic notes. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, fruitiness and light cinnamon with a smooth lingering fruity finish.

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized foamy khaki head. The aroma has roasted malt,fruity, lightly spicy pepper enhanced nicely with spicy cinnamon and vanilla with some chocolate is also coming through. The flavor has more roasted malts, ancho chili burn, some fruity pepper, cinnamon, milk chocolate with a hint of vanilla. The body is on the thin side for the style and would help to improve the rating of this. The ramped up version proved to be better.

Dark brown with little to no head. Aroma is full of chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon. Didnt really detect the chillies. The texture if very light and thin. Not heavy. Taste is full of chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon and only a very slight taste of chillies at the end. Not a very intense spice at all. Pretty good, id buy it again.

22 oz. bottle served in a mini taster snifter. Bottled February 25, 2012. A: Pours a black color with brown edges. A thin off white head forms on the pour and dissipates to a thin ring. S: Smells of strong cinnamon, light vanilla, some lactose sugar and some pale malts. T: More emphasis on the cinnamon and the ancho chilis finally come out with a nice warming finish. M: Super thin, almost bordering on watery. There is a slight pepper heat on the finish. O: I had this on tap at Stout Fest and it was fuller bodied and more flavorful. Im not sure if there some variation between the bottle and the kegs they have, but seek it out on tap if you can. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-25-2012

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2013 yeah, I have had this, guess I forgot to rate. Not that spicy at all in fact it is non-existent. But it is a tasty beer.
