I mean it's not terrible-I think I notice a little of the honey and nuttiness in the background-but it's not super special or anything.

Can. It poured a cloudy dark brown color with a beige head. The aroma was of toffee and malts. The taste was of nuts, toffee, chocolate and some booze. Good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a perfect pint. Stop #2 on my JO’s CANquest raises the stakes with one of my favorite style’s being evaluated.
4.5 A: Lightly hazed dark amber light brown color. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Retention is very good and a healthy ring of lacing is left behind. Quite nice.
4.5 S: Oh boy is this a treat to cranial nerve #1. Deep, rich nuttiness flanked by toastiness, caramel sweetness, and cocoa powder. The honey is light, but does add a nice extra layer that complements the main flavors quite well. Just a touch of earthy hops.
4.5 T: Cranial nerves 7, 9, and 10 have a good time now. Nuts, caramel, cocoa again do it right with honey having a bigger role in the taste. Earthy hops again. No complaints, very good.
4.5 M: Medium body. Pleasantly creamy. Good moderate carbonation.
4.5 D: Really solid beer. Maybe I’ll actually order it next time I’m at JO’s.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours dark brown with a rocky beige head. Aromas of brown sugar, molasses and dark fruit. Flavors are honey, gypsum, dark fruit, vanilla, cola, nutty tones and biscuit. Dry finish with earthy hops. Clean mouthfeel. This is somewhere between a classic stout and a brown ale. Malty but dry. Complex flavors! Nice beer.

Aroma was great. Nutty, little chocolate and some sugar. Flavor is a little too light. Gets claggy. Tap.

Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this beer poured a very dark brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was malty, dark fruits and a tough toasty. The flavor was malty and a touch toasty with dark fruits. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

Had this many times, this one is from a can at home. Pours a caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt, toasted grains, honey, a nutty character, some sweetness, also some earthy character, a touch of dark chocolate, better than your average brown.
