Wow what a treat! So we are in Anchorage on our last day of vacation and the family decides on a restaurant...unbeknownst to me it ts the Glacier Brewhouse. This is a tourist place for sure. They have a list of the cruise ships that arrived that day on the menu and a welcome to same.

The brew arrived at an approrpiate temperature in a standard shaker pint..a nice thistle would have been more of a showcase. It was an opaque brown with nearly non-existent tan head and little effervessence. Aroma was rich chocolate malt, some slight oak and a touch of fruit. Taste was rich with understated wood notes, chocolate malt, toffee,some cafe-au-lait. Bourbon accents faintly discernable. Mouthfeel was slightly slick and was not at all heavy...odd but true. Very enjoyable with my excellent Salmon Caeser.
