Bought on my holiday to New York. Jet black hue with a creamy light brown head. Strong coffee, chocolate and roasted malt nose. Coffee and chocolate flavour with a long roasted malt after taste. A decent stout.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is mild, caramel and chocolate. Flavor is strong, coffee, a little sweet. Finish is all hops, cascade to the max. Interesting stout, not typical (lacks the Guinness style character and adds a strong bitter finish) but very good to drink. Not what I expected, but I was very happy and will buy again.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Pours with an espresso body and a cappuccino head. This is one damn fine looking beer. Leaves some very nice lacing. Aroma is fresh and creamy with subtle malt and hops fragrance. Flavor is good, lots of roasted malt flavor with hints of cream, hops, alcohol, and ale yeast. Perfectly bitter in the finish. Overall I would say that this is a stout done right. Another Sierra Nevada treasure. This is one to keep on hand.

Pretty good stout. Nice appearance, average head. Pretty good taste with a bitter aftertaste. Pretty average in just about every way.

One of the better stoudts ive every enjoyed. Very smooth stoudt with tastes of roasted coffees throughout. Another quality Sierra Nevada product, which has come to be expected.

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2004
Lovely dark color with a rich and good looking head. Aroma from fruit and cocoa. Flavor is from dark chocolate and with some orange? Ends in a both malty and hoppy way.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Nearly opaque black with mahogany highlights and a massive creamy tan head. This beer is gorgeous. Powerful aroma filled with roast, coffee, chocolate and cinnamon with hints of anise, raisin and grapefruit. Not surprisingly, it has the characteristic Sierra Nevada hop bite. Medium creamy body with lively carbonation. Heavily roasted flavor with lots of coffee, chocolate, raisin and a small citrus bite. Slightly astringent. Very good.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2004
Opaque, ebony in color with a dark tan head. A bit nutty and a decent amount of mocha flavor as well. I would have liked it to be a tad bit thicker; however, it was very drinkable and very good.

heemer77 (5158) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 A little coffee and roasted character that shows some walnuts. Overall, a solid and very drinkable beer. A good, but not a great example of the style. Slight malt and a little chocolate and cream in the mouth. A little dry and smooth in the finish. Nice and light, this is a good daily drinker.

Low alcohol for a stout. Flavor of coffee with some chocolate. Bitter finish, a little thin
