Draft at brewpub. Translucent syrupy brown color with thin head, no lacing. Very light aroma. Very sweet honey flavor, plenty of malt backbone, moderate hops. High gravity masked well. A solid strong brown, but not spectacular..

On tap at brewpub pours a dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is of muted chocolate malt and honey. Taste of chocolate, slight nuts, lots honey, sweet, with some warming alcohol. Not bad, drinkable for 9.8%, but nothing really standing out here as overly amazing.
