Barrel-Aged Nahwhal

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)

"Deep in our barrel room, out of light's reach, our legendary Narwhal Imperial Stout rests in bourbon barrels for nearly a year. After aging, it emerges anew: rich with notes of oak, vanilla and coconut layered onto the Stout's malt flavors of dark chocolate and espresso. Enjoy this beast of a beer."

Nutty, smoky, sweet chocolate with a kick of bitter coffee.
A bit too much for me but very good. I'll take the "regular Narwhal though.

ABV 11.9%, 55 IBU
Hops: Challenger, Magnum
Malt: Two-row Pale, Caramelized malts, Chocolate, Carafa III, Honey, Roasted Barley
