My God... utterly amazing brew. Pours out to black coffee color with a nice firm tan head of about 1/4 inch. No lacing. Medium low level of carbonation. Aroma is laden with vanilla, malt, cream and coffee. Phenominal off the get go. Taste is heavnly; sweet creamy roasted malts blend with coffee overtones and woody scotch-like notes. Exceptional. Mouthfeel is wonderfully creamy, yet not sticky or too thick. Carbonation remains present and gives a slight zing to the finish. Exceptional drinkability, as the 10% ABV never even comes close to being noted. World class beer. Highly Recommended. This is what it's about people.

THE BLOODHOUND FACTOR: I didn't even want to share this beer. Benji got one taste and nearly decided to go for the bottle and finish it. Bloodhounds have exceptionally good taste, as exhibited here...
