Nice aroma, but there is too much alcohol taste. I am a big fan of Sierra Nevada beers, but this isn’t one of their best.

A decent flavour, but way too light bodied for a stout.

Did I crack open a bottle of Sierra Nevada Stout or Sierra Nevada Porter? It tastes remarkably similar to their very good sharp porter. If I were banking on having a stout, I would be a little disappointed. Strictly judging it as a beer and nothing more, this is quite enjoyable and I brewed a porter that tastes 99% identical.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 re-rated 11/2009; from Bier-Bienne - black coloured with a huge beige foam; nice lace; roasted aroma of milk coffee and walnut; soft mouthfeel and a medium malt backbone, some sweetness and a late bitterness; very creamy mouthfeel; moderately dry and fairly bitter coffeish and nutty finish - accurate and very pleasant

I agree with a lot of the other reviewers; not much adherence to the typical stout qualities here. The biggest faults are that the hops dominate the roasted malt in the aroma and it is way too fizzy! No creamy smooth mouthfeel at all. The heavy handed hops do give it a IPA quality. A confusing brew.
