The Anchor poured with a medium head; one that was a nice darker brown. The color is a very blackish brown and I couldn't see any light through it in the glass. There was something in the aroma that made me think of sugary baked goods. On the first sip, I got a hint of brown sugar. The beer isn't really sweet, but there are some definite notes of brown sugar or caramel. Some nice hops and malt. I would give it a medium on the strength-o-meter. Almost no bitterness. The aftertaste is mild, with just a touch of the caramel notes.
