UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 I?m not a huge stout fan but this is one of the best I?ve had. It?s almost a little too rich at times, full of toffee and liquorice, but it?s a beautifully put together bev.

Sarà anche uno dei prodotti più "commerciali" di Sierra Nevada, ma si tratta di un’ottima birra, con un amaro suo caratteristico che si intreccia con le note tostate e di caffé in un complesso molto particolare e piacevole. Una "cascadian stout" se ci si può concedere il neologismo.

Jado (439) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a solid black with a fluffy tan head that diminishes to a collar. Aromas of pine, black coffee and spices. The taste starts off with more black coffee before a firm pine resin bitterness kicks in. That slips away leaving a cocoa powder note. Pine and spice in the aftertaste. Substantial body. Drinks a bit like a black IPA. Pretty great though.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
Pours an almost completly black colour with a creamy head. Quite a lot of roastiness in the aroma, together with oak and chocolate. Pleasant smell. Flavour is much alike, bringing som dark fruits and coffee in there aswell. Very good balanced. Full body and a smooth mouthfeel. A really good stout!

Draft->tulip. Deep brown with tan head. Nice roasted malt with some bitter coffee notes. Touch watery and thin, but good flavor. Decent.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Roasted nutty malts, some faint coffee. Hint of tea? Light to medium body with some fizz. Nice, but a bit underwhelming and I think it’d be better if it wasn’t heavily chilled.

Pours a dark near black brown with a tan foamy head. Aroma is coffee toast and smoke. Taste starts with a touch of sweet and finishes very dry. Very crisp without leaving a lot of lingering flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
