UPDATED: JUL 1, 2006 Dark with a medium tan head that clings to the glass. Has some roast and some coffee with a good amount of bitterness. Re-rate: Poured black with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate with coffee and roasted notes. Flavor is heavily chocolate with coffee and roasted notes complimenting. Creamy mouthfeel with a rich milk chocolate.

Pours very dark, ruby highlights, big tan head. Roasty aroma, some coffee and some hops. Roasted malt flavor, dry coffee, some PNW hops lend some bitterness. Rich and dry, medium to full body. Nothing to really set it apart from the others, but very well made and quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 Dark Coloring. Espresso Head...Very Small. Plenty of good Malt, Chocolate and Roasts in This.. Carbonated...More Then I Care For in a Stout... Wouldn't Characterize it as Creamy, Given the Description...But a Very Good Stout Overall.

Simply yet elegant dry stout. Deep brown to balck in color with a soft tan head. Chocolate and roasted barley on the nose with a nice smooth mouthfeel full of caramel malts.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2004
I founds it a little hoppy for what I feel the style should have. While this is normal for Sierra brewsI dont think everything needs Cascade. That said this is a good brew with plenty of mouth feel and one that deserves attention

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Very nice, unobtrusive stout. Pours very inky with a substantial head. Almost jet black. Flavors of caramel, roasted malt, and PNW hops. Fairly sweet and enjoyable.

OldGrowth (3332) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Bottle: Good nose, coffee with cream, little nutty earthy. Nice brownish black color. Ok head that faded quickly. Sweet and bitter. Roasty. Maybe a whole wheat thing in there. Grapefruit bitter. Creamy, but not thick. Very good overall. Cant believe Im just getting to this

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Creamy off-white head that turns into a soapy layer above an almost dark brown body. Aroma has chocolate, and a dry, roasted fruitiness. Flavor is pretty good. A toasted fruit, with some bitter chocolate, and I can sense slightly woody and citrusy hops in it.
