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.

Good stuff - not as quite as delicious like in years past but still a solid non-IPA from @greenflashbeer #silvastout #cellar3 #greenflashbeer elegant notes of oak, vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted barley and ripe cherry.

Magic happening ... @foothillsbrewing #sexual chocolate and @averybrewingco #unclejacobs #craftbeer A perfect ending to an otherwise long day! This has to be arguably the BEST @firestonewalker anniversary beer! Dark and complex brew full of malt and barrel derived flavors with #Parabola leading the brew into the rich darkness along with chocolate, oak, and dark fruit character. #craftbeer #FWXVIII Happy #StPattysDay!
