Dark Black color, large head. Roasted malts, some hop bite. A full flavored stout. Medium body. Good balance. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Aftertaste is roasted malts and slightly bitter.

Really swell. Dark and roasted grains work wonderfully with the fruity yeastiness and cascade hops. All work so nicely in tandem, alternating eminence so as to make it hard in the right places and soft in the right places as the flavor unfolds.

Very dark and very smooth. This is a great stout. Pours black with a tan head, full bodied and well balanced. Excellent.

Very dark with a nice tan/white head. Extremely roasty taste, and very hoppy. This is similar to Storm King.

Nicely crafted beer. Unfortunately, the hops pretty much drowned out any other flavors. I tasted some roasted/smoked flavor, but the hops just got in the way. I think I would have enjoyed this beer more had it not been categorized under stout. As a stout, it is my least favorite. Maybe a nice IPA...or something.

Nice light brown head that settles down, but doesn’t completly dimish. Wonderful chocolaty/roasted aroma. Pleasantly roasted and a beautiful hoppy finish. I am really starting to like Sierra Nevada products.

Very nice stout. Starts off dark with a roasted aroma. That aroma leads into an equally excellent dry, roasted flavor accompanied by chocolate tones. Good hop and alcohol presence.

One of the finest of Ameria’s non-imperial stouts. Starts with a great Rocky head. Black as can be with a very roasty almost bunt smell. Flavor of dark chocolatehits the toungue. Coffee also comes to mind. A very nice hop after-taste and a warming alcohol affect. Great Stout!

I found this to be very enjoyable. Nice and dark with a very light head. Creamy and smooth. Roasted malts are complimented by chocolate and coffee. Some nice hoppiness to it as well. Definitely worth drinking.
