Sierra Nevada’s Imperial Smoked Porter is a complex mix of rich, dark flavors. The aroma is big, with pronounced roasted malt and hardwood smokiness. Wood-aged flavors add the complexity of toasted oak and vanilla, with a hint of the burned sugar depth of the brandy that gives way to a satisfying dry and warming finish. A single 55-gallon barrel of the beer was made and will only be available at a handful of very special tastings nationwide.
