Black, thick beige head. Smells of dark toasted malt and a bit of dough. Very rich taste, with toasted malt again some nuttiness and just a bit of dark, sweet fruits. Very good finish.

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Pours black with deep ruby mahogany edges and a large tan head. Smells roasty with hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is bitter from both roasted malt and hops, subtle hints of coffee and a pinch of bittersweet cocoa. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Sierra Nevada Stout finishes with a lingering bitterness.

JoshAWaddell (33) - Allen Park, Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Unique. Dark brown pour with very thick cream color head. A dark fruit taste hits you first, then a toasty caramel taste to finish. Very cool. One thing I would change is the thickness. Its a little thin for a stout.

hohops (126) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle. Appearance is jet black, not much head at all produced, just a few off-white bubbles around the side. Aroma- chocolatey, milky, creamy, roasty hints, dark malts. Taste- roasty, toasty malts, hints of burnt toast, some coffee, milky chocolate, smooth, fairly full mouthfeel, lingering bitterness. Hint of liquorice in the finish, and a bit more chocolate comes through as it warms. Very nice.
