Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Fritz and Ken's Ale



The first of four brews celebrating the 30th anniversary of Sierra Nevada, Fritz and Ken's Ale a nicely robust stout offering, that I gobbled up Tuesday night while Mr A. was over for dinner and general chit chat.

As can be seen in the photo, this poured out very easy with a nice stiff peaky foam. Aroma was fantastic, as the deep malts and steady alcohol tones were very well balanced. This was a very hearty stout, that was equally good sipping or gulping. It smoothed pout a bit as it warmed up, and was one of the few high alc brews I've had recently that didn't overpower on the booze aftertaste.

Overall, a fantastic stout that was a real treat.
