12 ounce can poured into a standard hourglass glass.

Very dark brown color with some hints of red. Smell is a combo of chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is much more coffee and caramel with minimal hop bitterness. The malts eliminate all heat that you might expect at this ABV level. The mouthfeel is rich and the moderate carbonation level makes this almost too easy to drink.

Overall this is a excellent beer but at 8% ABV this is no session beer and needs to be treated with the utmost respect.

Creamy, rich, malty, with a sweet finish. Very smooth and very easy-drinking. Excellent value to boot.
