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.

another solid offering from SN. A tad sweet but the hop finish compensates. keeps a great tan head.

Bottled. Black with beige solid, lasting head. Licorice aroma. Dry and medium bodied. Really tarry with chewy malts and a long bitter finish. Well balanced.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - DEC 29, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2003 Great beer, although more like a porter than a stout. Just about the best balance between sweetness and hops I've ever tasted. Body is lighter than the dark color would suggest. Chocolate/coffee notes, more sweet than bitter, but somehow manages to avoid being too sweet. This was a Christmas present, and a good one.

Odd little beer. The nose was nothing but hops saturating my ole factory sense. the initial taste was HOPS; it ytasted of nothing but pure hops like i was chewing on the plants themselves. I let it breathe a minute and the stout flavor came in mixed with hops stll. the finish was chocolate and hops. See a pattern yet? I feel there’s something lacking that I can’t figure out. Very chocolatey, very good.

This is a pretty good stout. Not mind blowing, but pretty decent, especially for how accessible it is compared to others.

Quite good. More roasty than average. Lots of chocolate and espresso. Simple but delicious.
