Hauling oats is hard work. Donkeys are motivated by carrots. Here at Tenaya Creek we are motivated by beer. Especially when it has the subtle aroma of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.
It is easy to forget about the long journey ahead when a dark ale with a golden tan head is in hand. So drop the reins, pry open the lid and enjoy the rounded, smooth pull. Take a breath and savor the notes of semi-sweet chocolate and hearty oats.
Your donkey deserves a reward for all its hard work

Wittales (733) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 18, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Appearance was clear black with creamy tannish diminishing 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are roasted sweet chocolate malts, coffee, hints of oats. Taste are simple roasted sweetness, chocolate, coffee malts. Palate are soft light smooth CO2 with meduim body, average length slightly bitter roasty coffee finish. Solid effort, needs more creamy body...

Thanks Dresden! Pours Black with minimal head. Aromas of roasted malts and dark/semisweet chocolate. Flavours follow suit. Decent. Wished the oats provided more texture. A touch watery on the finish as well.

Fantomasus (289) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours a deep velvet brown/cola. A moderate pour produces a wonderful tan head that sticks around (lacing). It looks nearly perfect. Present are complex aromas of: caramel, bread, hay, cereal, chocolate, coffee, nuts, some floral hops, some cheese, some masked alcohol, and a little clove. The taste is fairly balanced with a burst of sweet/sour giving way to bitterness and then salt/umami. It actually has a lighter body than I prefer for this style, it’s watery. Soft bitter finish. It’s a good beer but the watery mouth feel combined with a metallic presence throughout (even the aroma) holds it back.

slowrunner77 (7442) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 28, 2015
a solid stout I’d score higher if not for an ever so slight vegetal quality on the palate. Otherwise smooth, with nice lightly burnt roast and hints of chocolate and coffee. medium bodied.

rosenbergh (8865) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2015
Draught at the Tenaya Creek, Las Vegas, NV. Black colour with a small tan head. Coffee, bitterness, roasted malt and dryness in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, dry ash and mild bitterness. The coffee is not that present in the flavour. I like that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
