(Bottled) Opaque dark brown with a large, foamy and very lasting, tanned, nicely lacy head. Quite mild, sweetish, roasted-malty aroma. Flavor starts off dry, chalky and burned but ends sweetish and malty. Medium to full-bodied, slicky-smooth and roasty palate with moderately low carbonation. A tasty, but quite plain stout.

WorstDemoEver (15) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Pours with a nice tan head. Very subtle chocolate flavor. Definitely hoppy as far as stouts go. Alot more carbonation than wanted but should expect from a Sierra Nevada brew. Overall, it will work for a stout on a regular basis.

celogan (202) - Oroville, California, USA - JAN 23, 2005
I thought this was pretty tasty. I like it much better than Guinness. Poured dark brown as you’d expect, wtith tan head and nice lacing. Good carbonation and full creamy mouthfeel. Nice but subtle chocolate mocha like flavor wth slight hop finish. Flavors are not as pronounced as SN’s Porter, but I really like this stuff.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Bottle. Deep dark brown, tan head. Roasty American hop aroma. Flavor is roasty with bittersweet chocolate and hops. Lingering bitter finish. This is rather nice, and a good snag when there is a microbrew shortage....

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Opaque black. Roasted chocolate aroma. A suprising flavor for a stout. A lot less malt and a lot more hop than expected. This isn’t necesarily a bad thing. If I was strictly looking for a traditional stout flavor, then this would be a let down. But, just viewed as a beer with no style guidelines, this is a great beer. Very carbonated with a bitter hop flavor that would expect from Sierra Nevada.

Black with ruby tints and a large tan head that leaves lots of lace. Roasty aroma with some nice hop notes. Full mouthfeel. Great flavour of slightly burnt coffee & bittersweet cocoa, and some solid, lingering hops in the finish. Thanks to blankboy (from Bar Towel) and jercraigs for hooking me up with this.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Pours black with virtually no head. Aroma of hoppy roasted malts. Mild flavor of roasted malt with a small amount of bitterness at the end. Aroma exceeds taste. A decent mild stout.

jercraigs (9046) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2005
Dark black body, moderate tan head. Good lacing. Nice hoppy roasty aroma, some malt. Mild lingering roast is pleasant over some malt. Hops are faint but linger for a long time. Decent average palate, medium bodied. Nice beer. Thanks for sharing Tupalev.
