UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 Dark black color, with a creamy tan head. Dark chocolate roasted aroma, medium body, bitter coffee and roasty malt flavor, this stout has a nice hop bite, finishes bitter, not the best stout, but still pretty good.

Great drinking stout. Taste stays moderate and predictable all the way through. I could drink this by the case. Probably the best stout beer for the price.

A quality stout for the price. Drink it cooler than a typical stout and it will bring out the flavor nicely.

I am over sierra nevada brews. THey are all overly hopped with not much else going for it. Not malty enough for my tastes.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2004 2002 draught.Probably one of my least favorite Sierra Nevadas, but still a good stout. I was hoping for more of a body. I think Sierra Nevada characteristic hops detracts from this one. The sweet/light hoppy taste not being what i look for in a stout. 2003 bottle. I must say, I enjoyed this much more. This is a lighter stout, for sure, but still quite tastey with lots of barley malt showing through. There is a subtle light coffee flavor along with a roasted flavor that is almost hazlenut. The stout is quite sweet and has a medium body that has a soft honey-cream texture. Appearance is a nice light brown with some mahogany and black shades as well. Good caramel/white colored head. Muted nutty aroma. There is some bitterness on the aftertaste due to the cascades, but it is pleasant and adds some depth.

I found this to be an excellent Stout, pours almost black with a thin head. Nice dry roasted/coffee flavor and pleasant aftertaste. I enjoyed this one the entire glass. This is probably my favorite Sierra Nevada offering.

This is a stout that gets better the warmer the beer get when it almost takes on some imperial stout qualities. Aroma of burnt taffy and brown sugar. Quite a bit of malt sweetness on the front followed by a sour/bitter finish. Flavors of Dark chocolate. Seems to be missing some of the roasted barley flavors but a good session beer.
