12oz. bottle poured into Hoegaarden Glass/Tumbler.
A: Thin, oily head. No head in center; just around the rim. Cola colored with cherry tones under light.
S: Smooth, malted scent with mildly roasted notes and settled coffee back-end. Smells like wet dog once warmed up to room temperature.
T: Roasted coffee beans and strong hop presence. Not very complex.
M: Fresh, grainy, dry-hopped tingle, dryness.
OVERALL: With some freshly ground, roasted coffee bean under-tones, I'm really digging it. It's textbook as hell, though, without that stout punch. Style points are high, but Sierra Nevada just didn't own up to this recipe as it has nothing very special or unorthodox to offer. Just another cow waiting to get slaughtered.
NOTE: Live review.
