12 oz can with no freshness date.

A- Deep brown hue with bright reddish highlights when held up to the light. The mild carbonation brings a thin but sticky lace.

S- Chocolate malted milk balls, so malty rich ... faintly cloying with a clean alcohol in the nose.

T&M- Full bodied, creamy smooth mouth feel. The palate is full of unsweetened chocolate, caramel and "Breakfast Blend" coffee. Big maltiness is matched by a slow warming alcohol that gleans a bit of spice. Ghost-like smokiness. Hops are mild or at least meek in comparison to the malt. Very rich with a sweet finish.

D- Very easy to sip, I still would not drink it out of the can ... a beer like this needs a glass no matter what. One of the most amazing beers in a can ... I'd easily have this beer around all of the time.

Had this on nitro tap. Incredibly smooth. Smokey, peaty, heavy mouthfeel.

Picked up a six for my Fantasy Draft, just to try something other than the IPAs and Lagers that would be around. I was able to only have two of them as the rest of the deadbeats guzzled them. Overall, everyone loved it. I rather have a Wee Strong, but it was a nice taste with TONS of malt, and very good. I can see sipping this around a fire place while making fun of someone's haircut.
