Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Fritz and Ken's Ale
I picked up a bottle of Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Fritz and Ken's Ale from Al's of Hampden. This beer brought in Fritz Maytag from Anchor Brewing Company to celebrate Sierra Nevada's anniversary. The beer pours a deep black color with a lofty foamy tan head. The aroma is filled with chocolate, coffee, and a light hint of hops. The taste is powerful with chocolate and alcohol on the front end. The beer finishes smooth and creamy with a coffee and hop bite. The alcohol content is 9.2% ABV. The beer drinks really smooth and is extremely tasty, making it somewhat dangerous with its high alcohol content. However, go out and grab a bottle if you love chocolate and coffee, but even more if you love to celebrate great brewers.
