nakedwhendrunk (2089) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Pours a dark brown and leaves the same color body with a two finger white foamy head, not much lacing is seen; the aroma has some nutty super malty and rich, lotsa brown sugar coming through; the taste is super malty sweet kinda like "brown sugar candy with a malty aftertaste and finish; its pretty easy on the palate could be construed as a bit thin, but still good, carbonation is soft; overall, I say still a good beer worthy of coming back to
