Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
Exactly as anticipated (and described). Everything about this beer is over the top. Incredibly delicious, but the mouthfeel and finish may just be my favorite part.
Way beyond my usual beer budget, but being a Sierra Nevada fanboy I just had to ... and mighty glad that I did.
