Can from Nerhbc.
Pours a brilliantly clear deep reddish brown with a nice fluffy off white head that persists forever. Smells of caramel and candy sugar with hints of prune and raisin and a touch of carmelization. Little to no hop aroma. The flavor is sweet with brown sugar countered by a light burnt sugary taste. Light dried fruits and a hint of earth. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. I was quite impressed with this beer, although I went in with low expectations. It's a touch on the sweet side for my tastes, but its got a wonderful melanoid flavor and aroma as well as the dried fruits. Color me pleasantly surprised.

Bought as part of a case of 24 oz cans from Beers of the World on 9/21/13.

poured from a 24 oz can into a mug, served cold.

appearance: light orange with a 1 finger cream colored head. Very nice lacing.

aroma: very malty, reminds me of pancake batter.

mouthfeel: solid, good.

taste: a cloying sweetness grows with each sip. Not much balance here.

notes: my least favorite Naragansett beer.

UPDATE: 2014. The beer seems much improved this year. The sweetness is toned down, the hops balance the malt now. This is good beer.
