On tap at the Oak Cafe. Pours a solid brown color with light tinges of copper, decent clarity, fluffy white head that reduces quickly leaving little lacing behind. Nose is clean with some dried cocoa powder and a very heavy nuttiness that smells both delicious and inviting. First sip is reminiscent of charred wood; oak and maple flavors pull through, along with a strong nutty profile. Earthy, dirty esters run rampant atop a very slight hop flavor that stays on the leafy/grassy side of things. Bitterness is low overall, but it balances out the earth tones enough to keep things interesting. Unsweetened chocolate, roasted caramel malt, and burnt walnuts are left on the palate, fading long into the aftertaste. Medium body, maybe even slightly on the thin side, medium amount of carbonation.

Sierra Nevada never fails to impress me, and this is certainly no exception. A very solid brown ale with a great nutty flavor that does nothing but hit the mark. At 5.5% ABV, this beer is drinkable as can be. Chalk this one up as a victory.
