Day 29. I don’t actually know why it’s taken me this long to try this beer, perhaps I’m just used to looking for hoppy beers when I think of Sierra Nevada.
It pours a dark brown but when held up to light shows a dark red hint coming through. Off white head with a chocolate/caramel nose.
Quite a nice blend of chocolate & roast in the flavour, the mouthfeel and body are very well produced without getting too heavy. A light touch if alcohol in the finish with some residual sweetness that clears off the palate reasonably quickly.
A stand up beer I would definitely pick up again & reinforces my thoughts that I shouldn’t have waited so long to try it. 3-3.5 points.
