Sierra Nevada Barrel-Aged Narwhal Imperial Stout 473ml Can
Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
Style: Imperial/Double Stout
Format: 470ml Can
Barrel-Aged Narwhal is our deliciously dark Imperial Stout aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels. Barrel aging is a strange science; it mellows some characteristics of the original beer while intensifying others. Narwhal's aggressive roastiness has calmed, but the rich, chocolate-like malt backbone is brought to the fore. Black as midnight, this intense stout is complex with notes of cocoa and espresso balanced with hints of vanilla and toasted coconut from the oak casks. Nearly as rare as it's nautical namesake, try Barrel-Aged Narwhal while you can because like the creature itself, it will soon dive into the depths and leave nary a trace behind.

A spoonful of sugar would be nice
It's delicate and dry, but I'd rather add a bit of sweetness, especially considering that it's BA
The best beer I have ever tasted
I had heard how fantastic things about this beer and boy did it live up to everything I have ever heard. Eye shutting moment as all the flavours hit you.
