Sierra Nevada’s Narwhal 4 pk. only $9.97

 

Beer style: Imperial stout – a style of beer that was brewed to impress the Russian czars in 1800s.  This style is typically heavy on the malt and heavy on the alcohol as well.

 

Appearance: Pours black with a half-inch head.  It appears to be a thick beer with solid lacing.

Smell: Coffee, dark chocolate, & roasted malt

Taste: So much flavor in the beer – Dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, faint smoke, and slight hop bitterness

Mouth-feel: Starts rich and dry, but finishes smooth and creamy

Overall: I love this beer.  It exemplifies what superior Imperial Stouts can taste like.  There is nothing thin or weak about this beer.  It is a massive Imperial Stout that checks in at 10.2 percent alcohol.  It is only available for a limited time.  It also ages incredibly well.  I aged one for about 6 months last year and it was terrific.

 

Cheers,

Beer Guy
