COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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
- just don’t share this treat! ABV: 5.7%

Wittales (624) - 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...

thick black colour with a thin layer of caramel coloured foam. Starts a bit harsh with coffee and cocoa flavours with a hint of burnt. Burnt flavour turns to strong coffee in the finish.

exeter (260) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Not much head, disappears fast, no lacing. Tastes of roasted malts and maybe burnt coffee. Nothing here to pull me away from St-Ambroise

VertBaconStrips (2063) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
I think I’ve been spoiled by st. a oatmeal. Smooth roast, light or faint medium choc, fake grape hides, mellow nose. Mellow taste as well. Soft roast, weak bitterness that gains on the after taste, lacks the underlying smoothness I prefer. A decent beer that I just ended up drinking - guess that says something good. Tenaya bottle write-ups really suck.

dfearnley (888) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle to pint glass Toasted malt, coffee, coconut, oats, a little soy. Dark brown with a short lived creamy finger high tan head. Taste is primarily coffee and toasted malt, with soy and chocolate. Full bodied, creamy with some carbonation burn.

Beerenberger (1379) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2014
(Much appreciation to Ken for providing the bomber.) if you like chocolate chip cookies, and who doesn’t, you’ll like this beer. Roasted malts and chocolate dominate the nose. Pours as black as chocolate chip with a thin tan head and no lacing. Rosted malts, chocolate, coco, cola, and oats greet the pallet. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very tasty beer that is easy to drink and enjoy…also, you don’t have to clean up all those messy cookie crumbs.

Slightly sour, roasty character, some dark fruit. Nothing exceptional, just a standard stout.
