Shared a taster on-tap as part of four flights at the brewery; Sierra Nevada Brewing Co, Chico, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com

on tap. goblet. 55F.

A: As black as brown can get. khaki head. Lace clings to the glass walls throughout the quaffing.

S: Caramelized banana bread crust, garam masala spices, clove, gooseberry.

T: Sweet toffee, dried fig, licorice give way to caramelized grapefruit rind and citrus.

M: Smooth, smooth, smooth. Medium body, medium carbonation, alcohol is well masked.

O: Another great offering from Sierra Nevada. Excited that this will be re-brewed and distributed as a Best of Beer Camp in 2013. Will be interested to lay some of these down to see how the spice and malt add complexity over time.

On tap at the Beer Revolution SN tap take over during SF beer week.

The beer pours a fairly dark brown color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose this is quite the Belgian spice bomb, as I pick up vanilla, light dry citrus, a hint of chocolate and a boatload of spice. The flavor profile replicates the nose, and the beer is certainly well balanced. While a bit sweet initially, the light dry citrus and licorice dry this beer out very nicely on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied at most, with a fairly long, spice infused finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, though you can tell it's up there a bit.

While nothing extraordinary, this is very enjoyable, easy to appreciate domestic version of a Belgian IPA.
