9% ABV per the label.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy super dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, char, earth, molasses, smoke, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder, char, peat, smoke, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice mix of ingredients in the smell and taste, but the carbonation level on this one is a bit too low to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Drank from my Mane Liquor Tulip

A - Pours a thick Ebony colour with no light visible. The head is two fingered and tanned. It retains very well and laces.

S - Plenty going on with caramel, vanilla coffee etc

T - Wow so smooth. The vanilla and caramel are very prominent the finish is nice toffee notes and biscuit. Absolutely no sign of the 10% abv.

M - Full body and low carbonation. So very smooth indeed.

O - Well this is an awesome brew. I'm so very pleased its my 800th review. The balance in this beer is brilliant and the mouthfeel is perfection.
