UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 Dark Coloring. Espresso Head...Very Small. Plenty of good Malt, Chocolate and Roasts in This.. Carbonated...More Then I Care For in a Stout... Wouldn't Characterize it as Creamy, Given the Description...But a Very Good Stout Overall.

Simply yet elegant dry stout. Deep brown to balck in color with a soft tan head. Chocolate and roasted barley on the nose with a nice smooth mouthfeel full of caramel malts.

I founds it a little hoppy for what I feel the style should have. While this is normal for Sierra brewsI donít think everything needs Cascade. That said this is a good brew with plenty of mouth feel and one that deserves attention

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Very nice, unobtrusive stout. Pours very inky with a substantial head. Almost jet black. Flavors of caramel, roasted malt, and PNW hops. Fairly sweet and enjoyable.

OldGrowth (3120) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Bottle: Good nose, coffee with cream, little nutty earthy. Nice brownish black color. Ok head that faded quickly. Sweet and bitter. Roasty. Maybe a whole wheat thing in there. Grapefruit bitter. Creamy, but not thick. Very good overall. Canít believe Iím just getting to this

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Creamy off-white head that turns into a soapy layer above an almost dark brown body. Aroma has chocolate, and a dry, roasted fruitiness. Flavor is pretty good. A toasted fruit, with some bitter chocolate, and I can sense slightly woody and citrusy hops in it.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Pours a dark chocolate-like brown color with a medium head that dissipates in to a small oily off-white head. Aroma is very roasted malt, citrus with some chocolate and coffee notes. Flavor is identical to the aroma with an excellent bitterness on the swallow. Silky body with a medium finish.

sloth (2765) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Small light brown head, quickly dissipates leaving behind a small smathering of stringy lace. Opaque, black brew. Nose of black malt, roast with a hint of coffee, licorice and light vinous notes. Med/full body, creamy pallet. Good roast flavors, chocolate and coffee notes, cades coming through also in buried citrus notes. Finish is dry, roasty, fruity, oily, nice.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2004 Dark black with minimal light tan head. Light chocolate aroma. Low medium carbonation, very nice level for this beer. Flavor is well rounded and not overpowering. Medium mouth feel. Overall very good beer. Excelent value.

Nice roasty flavor with some hoppy undertones. Dark body, small head. Tastes gritty and roasted but ends with a hop bitterness. Good Stuff.
