UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 Tried again in a can, it was better than tap. A smoother brew with more toffee sweetness and still that sweet peanut finish. Tap at The Library DM. Rich copper body with a thin light off white head. Nose of toffe and black tea. There is also some toast and peanuts. This is roasted in the finish with some cola sweetness. Decent.

JStax (3381) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Poured from a 16 ounce can thanks to pepsiedcan. Pours a translucent dark copper with a velvety head of beige foam. The aroma is heavily malty with a carrot cake type of spiciness. Taste is initally sweet, but moves to a mellow spiced taste. Finishes with just a hint of dryness. Pretty good Oktoberfest.
