Cristobal37 (795) - 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 (831) - 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
