To me this smells similar to their porter, but roastier. Opaque with a nice creamy head. Enveloping roastiness with a lingering finish. Good hop presence, and well balanced. Sierra Nevada seems to make really balanced beers that arenít boring. Good stuff.

One of the best beers I have tried. Appearance is dark with a dark creamy head. Goes down smooth with only a slight after taste. decently heavy mouth feel and smooth. Great served in a chilled beer mug. Highly recommended for any stout lover.

Very fine stout, with a nice thin tan head. Oily and fruity texture, the cascadian character matched with dextrinic malt is fantastic. In my opinion little out of style but very interesting.

With an ABV of 5.8% Sierra Nevadaís Stout is quite light by todayís standards. That doesnít mean that it doesnít have a full-bodied flavor, though. In terms of appearance, Stout is extremely sexy with a black body and a velvety light brown head. The aroma is all coffee roast and bittersweet cocoa. When the liquid hits your tongue, youíll find that itís as sensational as it is tasty. I realize that statement requires some explanation. The flavors of coffee roast and cocoa (which are perfectly balance by the way) travel smoothly to the back of the mouth. When the ale hits the palate, however, a burst of hops appears in a flash to cleanse the rich, creamy flavors. The transition from coffee/raw-chocolate bitterness to earthy hop bitterness is brilliant. Stout truly is miraculously balanced. Thanks to a low ABV and a modest hop profile, itís downright refreshing - thatís certainly not something you can say about every American Stout.

Deeelish. Dryer than the porter with a more pronounced roastiness. Just as dark in appearance with what feels like a crisper, less creamy mouthfeel. Heavy body.

This is the only stout, that Iíve tried, that successfully marries west coast hops with classic stout malts. Sierra Nevada really knows how to put there individual stamp on all the styles that they brew! The stout exemplifies that tradition; this is a " go-to" beer for me, very drinkable.
