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%

Aroma: roasty, chocolatey, coffe-ey; Appearance: pitch black with light tan head that dissipates quickly; Taste: follow nose; sweet and roasty with malty finish; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: decent stout but nothing special. Wouldn’t seek out again.

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2016
A lovely smokey porter. It’s a little thin in the body. Oaty, floury flavor. A touch of coffee and a decent carbonation. It’s just missing a touch of weight to really seal the deal.
