Nice black pour with a chocolaty head. Typical coffee and chocolate nose and taste. Much milder than many stout, but this is very drinakable for those not "into" stouts. Nice hop finish.

A rather weakish stout...not very flavorful. But not the worst one, either.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Sampled from bottle at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2004 (#46).
Pitc black with a fine greyish head. Mild classic stout aroma of roasted malt and coffee with grassy and creamy notes. Strong coffee flavor with citrus and hop in the finish. Yeasty notes also. Rather dry with a good bitterness. Easy drinkable and tasty!

Pours out deep black with tan color head. Nice aroma; earthly & roasted. Nice hoppy flavor. Full body; nice roasted flavor (kinda like coffee). Great stout!!

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Pleasant dark fruit, malty aroma. Smooth and creamy texture, medium full bodied. Roasted flavor comes to life in the end with a dry hopped character. Not as robust as other stouts but still very tasty.

donvitozou (141) - memphis, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2004
my favorite sierra nevada as of yet, not as smooth as other stouts because of the crispness. the deep hoppy nutty flavor is still present. similar to the porter, just a bit darker and more flavorful.

To me this smells similar to their porter, but roastier. Opaque with a nice creamy head. Enveloping roastiness with a lingering finish. Good hop presence, and well balanced. Sierra Nevada seems to make really balanced beers that arenít boring. Good stuff.

MarkBarnes (390) - Waterville, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Sampled in (more than one) well-chilled 12-oz. bottles. This brew struck me more like a porter than a stout (Iíd really like to A-B it against Sierra Nevadaís Porter); i.e., a little lighter, milder and more carbonated than Iíd imagined it might be. Nevertheless, the overall experience was wonderful; and I look forward to picking it up again as Winter descends upon the Northeast.
