flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Brownish black color with a medium tan head. Very roasty sour lactose aroma. Strong roasted coffee and bitter hops flavors. Nice medium carbonation with a semi-dry finish.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Nice, lasting, brownish head; terrific lacing. Smells roasty...really, and a bit hoppy. Not too much going on there. As it warms, smells strongly of anise. Tastes dark, smooth, roasty, and nice bitterness at the end. Hops leave a clean citrusy feel at the end without battering me with those darn grapefruits. Nice and oily mouthfeel. I like sweet stouts better, but this blows Guiness out of the water.

Goblincat (383) - Westland, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Black with a tan head. Not real easy drinking, a little harsh (a little earthy). Not bad, but not the best.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Nice dark color with a big head. smooth Stout with a hint of chocolate. A good beer to watch the second half of the Tenesee/Baltomore game with.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2003
Strong cascade aroma with a little sweet chocolate. Hoppy flavour dominates, little roasty, bitter finish with hoppy grapefruit aftertaste.

ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2003
a tasty stout... all hopped up sierra nevada style, of course. dark, bubbly. slight coffee and plenty of dark malt. the hops preside over everything else though. a good hoppy stout. a bit one dimensional as far as stouts go, but good nonetheless.

bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2003
There is a definite roasted tasted here, almost burnt. Pretty good, I'd say.

EdPaulsen (117) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2003
one of the most powdered coffee stouts ever. this and coopers. literally, so bitter coffee tastes like dirt. i've never finished one, but would be good to share. really intense. do not look for any sweetness or smooth drinkability

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Black pour, and a tan head. Nice frothy head, and some lace. Roast malts, chocolate, light coffee and some fruit, maybe raisin. Flavors mimic the aroma rather closely. Hoppy finish for a full bodied creamy palate. Very surprising stout from Sierra Nevada.
