Sierra Nevada Stout of the Union Robust Stout - Beer Camp Across America 2016

This is part of the 2016 Beer Camp Across America special release from Sierra Nevada Brewing of Chico, California. They invited 31 breweries all across America to join in a collaboration brew with them and/or join them on their Beer Camp Tour with six stops across the USA. The release features a mixed 12 pack of six unique beers. This year's release was a bit hard to find and was a whopping $29.99 for a 12-pack.

This is a 7.3% ABV stout made in collaboration with Bagby Beer Company, Beachwood Brewing, Port Brewing/Lost Abbey, Smog City, and Societe Brewing.

The beer pours black in appearance, with a very tall, thick, foamy tan head that has a bit of creaminess to it as well. The aroma is dark roasted malts, pleasant char, chicory coffee, and a touch of black anise. The taste follows the notes of the aroma, lots of dark roasted flavors melding together quite harmoniously. The finish is dry with a moderate bitterness. The beer drinks very smooth. This is one very nicely done stout.
