Sierra Nevada Narwhal
Sierra Nevada Narwhal is a Russian Imperial Stout. This is the 2012 vintage. Big roasted malts with a huge helping of bitter hops. I am really enjoying the subtle chocolate, licorice and coffee flavors. Nothing is too strong, all the flavors are in the right proportion. The alcohol is also pretty well hidden for a 10.2% ABV RIS. It does have that SN thing going on, that certain hop (or maybe yeast?) taste that is in most of their beers. Gotta say I was impressed with this, I think I will stretch out the last 3 bottles of this 4 pack over the next year to see what some age does to it.
