Sierra Nevada Narwhal

SN Narwhal10.2% ABV. Russian Imperial Stout from Sierra Nevada, in Chico, CA. I first had this brew on tap at a local bar then later several times via bottles. Pours jet black with a nice and dense tan head. Nose of sweet charcoal, coffee and chocolate. Flavors of a mocha forward stout with a fair bit of roast, dark nuts, and chocolate. Nice finish of bitter roasted coffee and hop bitterness which helps give it some length. This is a nice and complex stout from Sierra Nevada. A four pack of this is very reasonably priced as well. Welcome, Narwhal.
