On draft at the Westin hotel in Cleveland, Ohio. Go Cubs!
Dark brown body with hints of crimson. Plum and roast character throughout. Lightly sweet and quite drinkable. Nicely done. SHIG (4965) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Draft: Poured a crazy think brown almost like chocolate milk with a frothy tan head. Aroma was malty and fruit. Taste is rich chocolate malts and some earthy hops. DiarmaidBHK (6137) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Can from The Andersons Columbus. Pours dark brown with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Nice nutty aroma. i get a bit of sweetness on the tongue which balances out a fairly dry brown. Finishes clean. Solid beer within the style, ganache (6087) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Canned. Nose nutty with a little dark toffee/caramel, sweet and inviting (though I may be imagining the smoke); pour dark brown with a ruby base and a rich light brown head. Taste dark and earthy, dark toffee and caramel, ruby red berry in the background and yes, some nice smoke and scorched malts. It’s sweet, and the kind of sweet that bodes ill for the margins of your teeth, but there’s a minor depth of malt and low bitterness to help (though no balance is struck). Roast is nice but trampled on, light floral notes here and there, nuts. Medium body creamy and there’s a strong suggestion of spirits, as if aged in bourbon barrels. Clean, fresh, with light vanilla bean. Gotta go slow to stave off the excess, but as a sipper it’s complex and interesting. [2016.08.31: 3.5] Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Can that has been cooler-aged at a local beer store since January. Very dark pour with creamy light brown head, good retention and some lacing. Aroma is nondescript maltiness - sorta biscuit, light toffee, honey and gentle roast -- maybe a bit of chocolate, but that may just be roasty biscuit throwing shadows. Moderately sweet with a roast, moderately bitter lasting finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall: nice.

Dark brown pour with brown head. Light malty aroma. Nice flavorful brown ale, not the most aeromatic brew but plenty of nutty and honey notes with some toffee and caramel too. Finish shows off the bittering, earthy nutty hop bitterness. Solid. jtclockwork (17604) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2016

Draft - Nitty notes and some dark toffee. Deep brown with a light brown head. Toast and light roast with some bitter nutty notes. fluffy (2461) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2016
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.
