This is world class stout. Big and hoppy, yet bursting with roasted and black malt flavors. This is a fairly strong stout that is big bodied but stops just short of being ’Imperial.’

Fules (833) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - OCT 8, 2016
Kicsi, rövid hab, fekete szín. Csokis, pörkölt malátás illat. Csokis-kávés, pörkölt malátás, picit kakaóporos ízvilág, némi aszalt gyümölcsös beütéssel. Közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas és keserű.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Pours black with a big stable light tan head and lovely lacing. Rich aroma of coffee, chocolate, toffee, dark bread crust, hints of prunes and wood. Perfectly balanced taste. Coffee-like texture, medium body and carbonation, somewhat sticky finish. Wonderful!

Cristobal37 (816) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2016
Roasty chocolate aroma some hops and oats. Thin head which mostly dissipates. Toasted roasted flavor, prunes, chocolate, hoppy, maybe even a slight medicinal black licorice. Very complex and flavorful. On the hoppy side, but that’s to be expected right? I like it a lot. Less than 6% wow badass stout.

BeerRenter76 (834) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Sierra Nevada delivers again, their porter used to be my favorite but it has some competiton from their stout. Speaking of their stout it pours a dark black body with adequate carbonation, a thick tan head that disapates fairly quick and it leaves good lace. Aroma of toasted malts and a slight hint of fruit. Flavor of chocolate hits first, then the toasted malts creep in with fruits present in the background. The mouthfeel is slightly bitter and it has a dry finish. Overall a pretty good stout, another good beer from sierra nevada. Originally rated on 10/17/08
