Served in a chilled tulip glass.

-Appearance 3.5: Poured out a pleasant dark brown color. 1/2 inch, cream-colored head quickly faded and left nice foamy trails all over the top. Little carbonation bubbles viewable all over the sides of the beer.

-Smell 3.5: Nice bouquet of hops, barley and caramel. Very subdued.

-Taste 4.0: Front is slightly sour. Mid-level hop hit and barley wave in the middle. Finish has slight caramel hints and more of the barley, along with a cocoa powder flavor that is unexpected and lovely. Finish is delicious: pleasing alkaline hops balanced with a deep tannin flavor. Aftertaste is dry but long at the same time with more of the hoppiness.

-Mouthfeel 4.0: Good carbonation level that enhances the flavor of this brew.

-Overall 4.0: A satisfying beer that would be excellent as a session beer. Great on its own, but would go well with food and crudites. That's right, I typed "crudites." Regardless, this is one of the few "mego micro" seasonals that is worth picking up every time it comes out.

12oz (2012 release) into a tulip. Pours a transparent chocolate brown w/ a monstrous mocha head that settles to a thin film, leaving behind a beautiful web of lace around the sides of the glass.

Aroma is roasty and chocolatey with a vaguely metallic twang.

Taste is roasty and bitter. Dark malt, chocolate, floral hops. Toasty and warming, but not as malty as a winter warmer.

Mouthfeel is relatively light with a semi-dry finish. Leaves a sharply bitter aftertaste.

Overall an enjoyable rendition of a style that's never been a personal favorite. Definitely a nice complement to falling leaves, dropping temps, and Sunday afternoon football.

Pours a nice medium brown, with some white head and little bit of lacing. Aroma has a very slight hop bitterness, but very balanced compared to some other sierra nevada offerings. many of the toasted to mid roasted malts starts to come out in the aroma, but only after a few hefty sniffs. Taste has hints of biscuit, caramel then to a lighter chocolate. feel is nice and crisp, with a nice balance that would taste great on a colder night. toasty malt taste lingers in the back of the throat. Overall very tasty beer, hits a very great balance without being overly malty or hoppy.
