3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 I’m into it. Pipeworks is two for two for me and I can’t 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. alexsdad06 (10640) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2013
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. pcstuck (64) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Dark brown with little to no head. Aroma is full of chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon. Didn’t 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, i’d 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. I’m not sure if there some variation between the bottle and the kegs they have, but seek it out on tap if you can.

Bottle... Pours dark brown with no head. The aroma is a swirl of dark chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is mostly chocolaty, also offering spicy chilies, vanilla and a trace of cinnamon. Finishes with chocolate crème and warming chilies.
