Dark with nearly no head, has an amazing roasted tasted that is smooth and easy to drink despite the high ABV. Highly recommend.

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...
