Black, but seems to have a deep red-brown shine; yellow-brown, very creamy head, lacey. Slightly sourish (lactic?) nose, with ink, something nutty (not as in aged beer), tinge of dark chocolate. Roasted, slightly lactic flavour, still something like hazelnut oil - also some kind of bitter, undefinable oil. Medium-bodied; roasted/ nut-oil taste keeps hanging around long. Warming up, the beer develops vinous qualities. Difficult to pinpoint, this one. Very smooth, hiding - maybe just a touch too much...

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 This was an above average beer, but still lacked something that makes it a cut above the rest, kind of like the whole line of sierra nevada beers. pours black, with a thin head. No distinguishable aroma, although develops into something like caramel ??malts??. Kind of oily mouthfeel, thin too. This doesn’t seem like a stout...

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2004 Great Stout! Pours black with a thick beige head. Has a roasted malt/aroma and the taste does not disappoint. Definite hop presence with a sweet roasted coffee and dark chocolate taste. Has a nice thick creamy mouthfeel with good lacing. Leaves a slightly burnt aftertaste. A real good stout that to me, gives off an imperial stout type of feel but with less alcohol. I'll definitely buy again.

Duke (117) - New York, USA - MAR 13, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2004 Almost black with a huge tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is a little weak. Flavor is also hard to pin. Good but not great for a stout.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Beer pours black or nearly so with a big beige head that is nicely retained. Aroma is a bit subdued for stout, although there is some decent roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt goodness, though the palate is a bit thin. Pretty tasty stuff. Availibility is a significant plus.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2004
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.
