UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 Solidly done but I am not much of a fan of dry stouts. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a thick black color with a medium sized brown head. The aroma is dry hops and light roasted malts. The flavor is dry stout - malty with some floral hops. A decent hint of chocolate. Solid.

(Bottle) Pours a huge, brown head and an opaque body. Nose of cocoa and some hops. Flavour is a full and sweet chocolate - something I like alot. Good texture and oiliness. Very good! ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - APR 26, 2004
bottle, pours an opaque black with very small tan head that dissipates fast. Aroma of roasted malt with hints of chocolate. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Dark chocolate start with some hop bitterness. Nice roasty middle with a very pleasant burnt bitter to finish. A delicious beer. Sammy (12105) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2004
Less coffee more chocolate with fruit flavour. Me and mates prefer ales. But I have rated it according to its style, which it is superior in its category. Good aftertaste.

Draft. Deep black, thin veneer of a head lasted nicely. Chocolate nose, smooth like a malted shake. Palate is full, roasty, and chocolate, with a hint of spruce hops on the finish. Nice stuff.

Respectable stout - though not as remarkable as I have heard about - very nice body and appearance - sultry darkness - flavor was robust and roasty - the conditioning was a bit off so that might be throwing things off for me DocLock (10659) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2004
Pours obsidian black, with a good head and lacing. Aromas of malt, caramel, coffee, and some hops. Tastes very complex, with hints of coffee, caramel, malt, some hops, and chocolate. Nice dense mouthfeel and a very complex, crisp, rewarding finish. Very nice stout. firemedic713 (169) - Palm Bay, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2004
Good example of the style. Very dark color, medium brown frothy head. Everything a good stout needs... Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2004
Appearance: dark brown, nearly black color, with a thick, full tan head that bubbles a good deal, before crumbling down, leaving a touch of lace.
Aroma: fruit, and bitterness, right off, grapes and berries, and such, with more flavors unfolding, pepper, anise, espresso, a big helping of roast and bitterness.
Also, enough carbonation to remind me of cola, but not too much.
Warm and smooth on the palate, and continuing the flood of flavors found in the nose, with an undulating ripple of bitter hops. Great, chewy mouthfeel.
Solid malt, dark, tasty body.
A delightful dance takes hold in every sip: the bitter hops do a fancy tap, until lush, dark malt sweeps in and hogs the spotlight, before long the two begin to tango! A rousing and roasty stout, all around!

Comparing this to Boulevard Dry Stout. Sierra definitely has more bitter than Boulevard. Head doesn't last as long after pour. Tastes good but isn't in this raters opinion as good as Boulevards version.
