Just an update on this brew. The whole carboy finally went dark and that's how I knew it cleared and was ready for bottling. The FG was 1.012 for an attenuation of approx. 85% and hopefully a nice crisp malty flavor. The abv is 9%....whoa!!! Here I am measuring FG. The smell was delightful. Wish scentsy made that scent!

This is in fact Beer's Law!

(note, beers darker than about 20 SRM do not usually obey Beer's law)
