As with all of Sierra Nevada beers this is a great tasting beer. A bit too much coffee for me but apart from that very smooth.

A rather bitter wee number, plenty of alcohol in the aroma but its not so noticeable in the flavour. Lots of roasted flavours giving some dirty coffee notes. A little syrupy but relatively little body for such a strong beer. A satisfying strong, bitter stout (you will love it if you are looking for those three things).

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 355ml [email protected] (from Bierzwerg) - Dark beer with dark black brown color with minimal brownish head. Aroma has dark chocolate, raisins wih coffee and roasty malt. The taste sweetish with some medium bitterness and light sourness. Palate is almost full with sweetishky sticky texture and almost flat carbonation. Finish is dryishly bitter. This US Imperial Stout has been geared more towards malty sweetness instead of a more typical hop loaded Stouts of the new continent. Personally I like the more hop oriented ones but this is definitely still worth checking out.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a half finger of dark brown head. Aroma of cocoa and chocolate with caramel and raisin. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Follows aroma with some dark fruits and raisin. Great stout, I wish it was year round.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - APR 24, 2014
0.355 l bottle, thanks Petteri! Pitch black color. Soft roasty aroma with coffee, raisins. Soft roasty flavor with coffee, charcoal, raisins, nuts and restrained pine. Very harmonous, drinkable and complex beer. Surprisingly soft and delicate yet rich and extremely tasty.
