4.54/5  rDev +18.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance:
If I didn't know any better, I'd think it to be a stout! Pitch black body allows no light to penetrate. Thick, light brown head hangs around for some time before fading away and leaving plenty of lacing behind.

Aroma:
Has a very welcoming peated malt character to it, reminds me more of a Scottish ale than a Belgian. Nice lightly roasted coffee notes. Lemon grass.

Taste:
Complex and unique - easily the best beer I've had from Sierra Nevada! Rich & smoky malts hit up front with a hint of caramel and a fair amount of sweetness. Then a considerable amount of citrus hits the palate as earthy hop character sweep in to bitter things up. The bitterness is surprisingly restrained. A nice amount of dark fruits tickle the taste buds. Alcohol is noticeable but adds character.

Mouthfeel:
Medium bodied and light on carbonation. Has a dry, smoky oak finish.

Overall:
If you see it, get it! Fantastic brew! It's a really saddening experience knowing that this is a one time brew because it truly is exceptional. Here's to hoping they keep the recipe around!
