A rocky, tan head capped a dark, dark brown, chalky body. Aromas started sweetly malted, then mouthwatering scents of citrus hops emerged with deep roasted undertones. Dark roasted coffee flavor (enjoyably to the point of being burnt). Bitter finish with a creamy mouthfeel. Very good.

aged 1.5yrs by dave p. big initial aroma of roasted malts, carmel, & coffee & bitter chocolate. Pours a dark black w/ a nice tan head and carb bubbles on the glass. Pallate is light and carbonated. Flavor is bitter heavily burnt/roasted malt subdued hops and a smoky finish. Overall a solid stout but a bit weak in the palate and a little to smoky for me.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Bottle shared per DavidP. This bottle was aged a couple of years. Aroma: smokey, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Appearance: thick dark brown/black. Thin watery white head with bubbles around the glass. So-so lacing. Flavor: smooth sweetness, a little smokiness on the flavor and palate. Roasted grain flavors. This beer ages well. The taste is surprisingly light given how thick this beer is. Palate: smooth, not lingering at all. Overall, try aging this one and give it a try. 7, 4, 8, 4, 15 = 3.8

Rerate: Pours to a black body with an airy bread dough looking foamy, frothy, tan head. Nice lacing. The aroma is chocolate and cola. The flavor is chocolate, anise, licorice, sweet bready malts. The palate is roasty, medium bodied, with noticeable carbonation. 7, 4, 7, 3, 13 = 3.4

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 Pours with a yellow-greyish head. Smells a bit like smoked hops. Tastes sweet and smoked with a hinge of vanilla. Quite hopped. Has a bitter, dark-chocolaty, smoked finish.

Bottle from Utobeer. I love these twist off caps, the walk to the bottle opener is seldom a fun trip. Pours dark, almost black with a coffee head that soon goes away. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, burnt malts. Flavour is malt that is burnt, chocolate, coffee, hoppy bitterness & fruit. This is a stronger stout and leans towards the Imperial stout mold, even if it does not quite match the alcoholic content.

robpet (98) - Stone Mountain, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2005
Pour was dark browm with a dark tan head. Not much aroma. Malty/hoppy. Initial flavor was filled with "typical" Sierra Nevada hops. You could tell it was theirs in other words. Bitterness was initially disappointing as in lacking. Through the glass it appeared to emerge to the point that it was quite good at the end. Don’t know why that would be. Smoky, hoppy flavor.

Smells of of sweet roast and caramel. Thick frothy head that is long lasting. Very dark in color. Tastes of roast, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Not a big stout fan but pretty decent.

Black with a medium sized creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel and cookies. Flavor is coffee followed by a roasted nut flavor in the finish. Nice.

WesBeerGuy (62) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2005
Pours thickly, medium tan head that doesn’t last long enough. Smells sweet and malty, but has far more hops than I’ve had in a stout. Which I don’t think is bad at all. Nice roasted malt flavor, augmented by serious hops bitterness. An unusual take on a traditional beer and I would recommend it to anyone

Classic stout. Dark, but not as strong of a flavor as I was hoping. I think I’m actually tasting some hops in this, different for a stout (from what I’ve had, at least). A well-balanced roasty flavor, and a good buy for my money.
