Sierra Nevada’s Narwhal

narSometimes, you need a big beer. And when you need a big beer, you need big flavor. Big body. And most of the time, big alcohol. Sierra Nevada’s Narwhal has you covered on all  fronts. Clocking in at a hefty 10.2% ABV and boasting as broad of a flavor profile as one could ask for, Narwhal’s full and chewy texture is beautifully complemented by flavor notes of dark  chocolate, sweet dates, roasted nuts, toasted bread, aromatic licorice, and moist tobacco. Sold in 4-packs, keep three for drinking and one for storing up to 6 years for added complexity.
