I really enjoyed this beer. ABV at 10.5 hidden very well. Nice deep dark brown color with little head. Very smooth, almost a sweet taste, but not like a milk stout. Very enjoyable.

A deep black color pouring, with a minimal carmel head.
Smells fresh and clear, with a little hops.
Taste of carmel, with only a light and lingering bit of alcohol, and an easy bite afterward.
Luxurious medium body feel in the mouth, with no carbonation, calm and smooth all the way.
Overall, very pleasing: easy drinking, worth sipping and lingering.
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a seidel mug. V nice.

12 oz can into tulip. No date.

L. Black with a thick mocha head about 2 fingers. Retreats quickly but leaves a nice lacing.
S. Not too much on the nose, light mocha flavors with a touch of boozeness.
T. Lots more on the palate. Nice dark malts really shine. Chocolate, and coffee with a really nice smokiness and sweetness on the finish.
F. Creamy mouthfeel with nice advance carbonation. Really enjoyed.
