GregClow (3311) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2005
Black with ruby tints and a large tan head that leaves lots of lace. Roasty aroma with some nice hop notes. Full mouthfeel. Great flavour of slightly burnt coffee & bittersweet cocoa, and some solid, lingering hops in the finish. Thanks to blankboy (from Bar Towel) and jercraigs for hooking me up with this.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Pours black with virtually no head. Aroma of hoppy roasted malts. Mild flavor of roasted malt with a small amount of bitterness at the end. Aroma exceeds taste. A decent mild stout.

jercraigs (10126) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2005
Dark black body, moderate tan head. Good lacing. Nice hoppy roasty aroma, some malt. Mild lingering roast is pleasant over some malt. Hops are faint but linger for a long time. Decent average palate, medium bodied. Nice beer. Thanks for sharing Tupalev.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2005
Bottle, private order, lcbo. Light black with reddish hues. Sweet aroma. Mouthfeel on the light side for a stout, but thats not a bad thing - it is actually quite refreshing after rating a number of imperial stouts in the past few weeks. Lots of roasted bitterness in taste, good burnt coffee notes as well. Lingering bitterness in the end. A great session stout. Since stouts tend to be my favourites, this is a perfect 400th rating as I approach my 1-year anniversary on the site. And to any Toronto raters reading, Ive got a case of this stuff available for trade!

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2005
What a great idea! A (relatively) low alcohol session stout. Not as much mouth feel as you would expect from a stout, not as much intensity of flavor, but good complexity, coffee / chocolate / darl roasted malt.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Rating #200: I love this stout. It has a mocha aroma accompanied by some yeast. Huge fluffy sand colored head over a dark brown body leaving behind lace. Rich flavor of roasted malt and sugary yeast. Dry finish and leaving a aftertaste of a wheat

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2005
bottle. pours a deep redish brown in color with a creamy tan head. while very flavorful with a hint of chocolate, the flavor that sticks with me is one of a slightly burnt malt that is quite dry on the finish. the quest continues for that really good stout.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2004
bottle. deep black colour with a small mocha head. roasted malt, sweet chocolatey aroma. has some coffee characteristics along with chocolate. rich body. bitter. reasonably well balanced. So far I havent been disappointed with Sierra Nevada. Its also dirt cheap here ($1/bottle), why cant we have cheap quality beer like this in Ontario?

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Its been years since I tried this brew, and I dont recall being that impressed. I have to say, either my palate or the recipe has changed ... and I am guessing my palate. Nice maltiness in the aroma and some rainy plums. Flavor is robust with a touch of roasted acridity at the end. Overall a very solid stout.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Dark brownish red with a fluffy beige head...chocolate and coffee dominate the nose in addition to hints of toasted nuts and toffee. Strong coffee upfront with a bitter chocolate finish. Medium body that is creamy and relatively carbonated (maybe too much for a stout)...pretty good overall.
