A delicious stout, with a beautiful deep golden color, but a small head. The wonderful caramelized malt flavor is well balanced with a moderate hop taste. Very good beer.

From bottle. Pour brownish black with a full tan head. Roasted coffee aromas and dark malt flavors balanced well with a refreshing hop finish. Full bodied and delicious. Yum.

(4) Semi. So it took some time to understand what they meant with an American stout - thinking extra hoppy?!

Typisk smag af de amerikanske humler. Kaffenoter og spændende at den er så humler. ..

Rzadko sięgam po piwa z amerykańskiego browaru Sierra Nevada. Ma to jednak tylko jedną przyczynę - cenę... Kiedyś piłem Torpedo i wbiło mnie w fotel. Po Ich stoucie spodziewałem się podobnego efektu. Brunatny kolor, z piękną, beżową pianą. W aromacie czekolada, palone słody kawa i nieco wanilii. W smaku gładkie, aksamitne, w sumie bardzo delikatne. Jednocześnie jednak czuć paloność, czekoladę. I są to dobitne, stanowcze nuty! Goryczka również stonowana, niskie wysycenie. Baardzo przyjemne piwo!

Pours an opaque dark brown almost black color with khaki colored head. Roasted malt, chocolate, and toffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with more roasted character.

As I was bit disappointed in Sierra Nevada Porter, wasntt expecting much of the stout, but it really surprised me. Not only well balanced, but quite full bodied, rich and interesting, especially for such a low ABV. Lovely moderate intensity roasted malts, some pleasant dark choco kick, very smooth. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness. Nice
