3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent enough Stout, nice aroma, good palate. Pours like a typical Stout with beige head. It has more hops than I’d expect from a regular Stout but they are not to over powering. It goes down well but lacks the character to make it stand out on it’s own.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in pint glass. Color is opaque black. Aroma is dark roasted malts, some fresh hops. Tall mushy foam held 1/2 inch over the pint glass, no spill. Aroma follows to palate- plenty of roasted barley with notes of caramel, coffee grounds and dark chocolate. Citrusy and bitter finish. Not as roasty as I prefer a stout, but delicious.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Wet, malty, roasty, chocolate.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Chocolate, malty, roasty, watery, slightly bitter.
P- Full body, thin texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- An average stout. Then again, I always seem to be under impressed with Sierra Nevada. A little on the watery side. Almost like an old pot of watery coffee. It was alright, but definitely didn’t wow me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: November 16, 2014... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith pint... OCCASION: return from Ben and Teresa’s wedding... APPEARANCE: jet black body; impressively thick, creamy brown head tabletops in the glass’s center, while high-arching lace adorns the outer glass; good coverage overall ... AROMA: nicely hopped, slightly lactic; some smoky, murky qualities; some plasticine hints late impede the otherwise welcome scents ... PALATE: reasonably smooth, slightly oily; medium-bodied with a palatable late rush of effervescence on and under the tongue....TASTE: a much hoppier stout than its tradition encourages, with some dry hops lending punch to a rather brackish taste; sweet, roasted like coffee, and even at the finish, encouraging another sip ... OVERALL: a flavorful West Coast take on the British style; these guys do not do much wrong, and this is another example why...
