A- Clear amber body. Thin tan head that fades pretty quickly leaving a bit of a collar and a very thing piece of lacing in the middle of the glass.
S- Sweet with alcohol cutting through. Big caramel malts with not much hops to back it up. It was almost like you could smell the bitterness. Bit of yeast too.
T- Very sweet with huge helping of caramel malts. The bitterness is left underneath all the flavor. Alcohol comes through and leaves a very nice gentle warming in back of throat.
M- The body is on the thinner side. Medium-thin body. Low carbonation.
D- Was a very good brew. The 2000 is better IMO, however, my friend preferred this. Very easy to drink though and could of had a whole bottle to myself and truly would of loved it.
