On tap.
Look is clear brown with a thin head. Smell of cinnamon spice and toffee caramel. Taste is similar, along with some earthy hop and nut brown malts. The body is a little thin, like an easy drinkable brown ale. Fortunately the spice is balanced out by the malt base and doesn't linger too long.
Pretty good.

12oz. can from Brewery: This one is now at 6.5%: they must have changed the recipe a bit from the original ratings. It pours a clear, dark brownish-amber color. There was a bit of an off-white head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. The aroma is good. Some spices, of which cinnamon is predominate and a touch of the honey. Some caramel malt. The taste is good. Caramel malts, but no real sweetness. Earthy hops, some of the cinnamon and a hint of nuttiness. This is nice!
