Nice, bitter, black coffee kind of stout. Much better than SNís Porter.

Has a nice head and dark appearance. Not at all smooth for a stout, and a little more bitter than I like my stouts. rerate: still not one of my favorites, very hopy for a stout, but has a certain creamy roastedness that I enjoyed.

crdic (105) - California, USA - JUL 16, 2002
This stout looks very nice, but itís poorly balanced, with hops and alcohol dominating its flavor. It seems a bit light-bodied for a stout, as well.

This is one of the best smelling beer I have ever smelt, but too bad it didnít taste as good.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2002
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.
