Deep brown pour with a finger thick tan head. Nice chocolate and coffee nose with wood and scotch accenting the nose and flavor. Smooth on the palate. Quite nice.

On tap at Bistro BA Fest poured a translucent dark brown nearly black with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of peat smoke, bitter chocolate, vanilla, oak and pepper. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of peat smoke, bitter chocolate, vanilla, oak, carmel and roasted malt with a smooth roasty finish.

nickd717 (3569) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 16, 2009
On tap at the Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. This was surprisingly amazing. Darkest brown in color with a medium-sized tan head and great retention and lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate, coffee, oak, and whiskey. Flavor is complex and awesome with roasted malt, caramel, coffee, chocolate, Scotch whisky, oak barrel, and vanilla. Very smooth and creamy on the palate with medium-full body. Nice one, Sierra Nevada.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Pours a dark, chocolate-brown color; medium-brown head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Solid, roasted nose, bitter chocolate and light charred barrel notes; generous, roasty. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: much heavier barrel notes than the scotch ale: toasty wood / charred, light scotch / bourbon; nice roasted malts and bitter chocolate underneath, though a bit reliant on the barrel character; nicely integrated, on the whole. Lasting finish: toasty barrel, charred wood, scotchy scotch scotch, lightly; bit of sweetness.

marcus (6772) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
On tap at Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. Pours dark brown with a tan head and a malty aroma. Mostly sweet but slightly sour roasted malt flavor with an alcohol trail.

bhensonb (11494) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Tap at the Bistro BA fest. Black with some dark tan head. Cola aroma. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is rather single malt with sweetness. It is a wonderful thing. Sipper of the world. Beautiful.
