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.

Mmm that raspberry and chocolate @foundersbrewing #girlsofcraftbeer #beergirl #beerchicks #craftbeergirl #biglushious #beergirl #craftbeer It's been a great year for #craftbeer! Here's my best for the year. Enjoyed some vintage '11 @thebruery #blacktuesday - man, the aging did wonders to it! Velvet-like chocolate, vanilla, oak and bourbon #jelly! #craftbeer This is a BIG beer! Brimming with luscious roasted coffee and chocolate malt flavors which are balanced by a brisk bitterness and bold freshness from the hops. #8wiredbrewing #istout #newzealand #craftbeer Good times @dragoonbrewing in #Tucson!
