Narwhal - Imperial Stout - Sierra Nevada Brewing - 10.2% ABV

Pours as black as midnight with a fair head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is of vanilla , oak, maple and coffee. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, as for the taste there is quite a few flavors going on here, cocoa and coffee lead the way but there is also a nutty flavor followed by oak and slight vanilla, all of these flavors end with a that charred and roasted bitter that is expected from this style. The alcohol is present here for sure but with all of those flavors going on it works and at 10.2% ABV even a magician couldn't hide it completely. This is a fine Impereial Stout that gets our seal of approval.                         Rating 8.5 out of 10.

Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
