I should have known that SN would dry hop the hell out of this beer. Stouts are not about massive hops!! Drinkable, but really lacking in complexity of a real stout. Get the Celebration Ale or the Barleywine instead.

Medium thick roasty malts with a long bitter finish. Not much thicker than their porter, but less carbonated and creamier. I must be spoiled, this seems so ordinary.

not very bitter, a taste remenisant of coffee, with a mildly sweet aftertaste.

Stouty-black colour, sweet-portery smell...tastes like a common porter, nothing special!

Huge tall tan head of course bubbles atop a dark brown body. Flavor changed from very bitter to mildly bitter over the first few minutes of drinking. Sweet, but not too sweet. Bitter, but not too bitter. Seems to fit nicely for me. I’ll be trying other brews by Sierra Nevada.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2003 Beautiful dark garnet, almost black. Brown head leaves intricate patterns of lace. Roasty nose. Hints of coffee and, faintly, dark chocolate. Due to some sweetness, this seems more mildly hopped than other Sierra Nevada brews (it's still quite hoppy though). Lingering bitter finish.

A very well-hopped stout. Pours black and smells of hops. Nice body with thick roastyness and chocolate. Oh, and hops. Over all a good beer.
