COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Before Sierra Nevada was a reality, our founders brewed beer at home and dreamed of building a brewery one day. Back then, they brewed the beers they wanted to drink—bold and full of flavor. Stouts had always been a favorite, so when we needed a big and rich beer to test out the brewing system at our fledgling brewery, stout was the obvious choice. Thirty years later, not much has changed. We’re still brewing the beers we want to drink and our classic Stout is the same as it’s ever been—big, rich, bold, black as night and filled with the wild-eyed passion of which dreams are made.

Myonlyvice (320) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2017
Dark brown with a red hue. Creamy, beige head and some lacing. Aroma is dominated by chocolate and malt. Taste is dark chocolate, burned malt and a citrus like sourness, that I believe come from cascade hops? Anyway it reminds me of a mix between a stout and an IPA. Mouthfeel is on the thin side for me.

tricksta_p (4763) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is roasted malt, mild coffee, some caramel, pleasant hoppy notes, cocoa, mild milk chocolate, bit fruity from the hops. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Body is medium, slightly creamy. Ultra-smooth and drinkable, surprisingly hoppy, a great classic US Stout.

Pallleon (380) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 27, 2017
Stout létére nagyon könnyed sör. Amíg a legtöbb stoutot képes vagyok 30-40 percig iszogatni, addig ez a sör sokkal gyorsabban elfogyott. Nincs benne semmi különleges, semmi extra, az alkoholtartalma is mérsékelt. Pont ez az ami tetszett benne. Szerintem, ha elővennénk a nagy sörkönyvet, akkor ennek a receptje lenne a hagyományos stout címszó alatt.

alteregoo (1498) - Kalisz, POLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Piana obfita, drobna, całkiem ładna. Barwa prawie czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat średnio intensywny - mleczna czekolada, karmel, świerk, dojrzałe cytrusy. W smaku półsłodkie, intensywnie kakaowe, czekoladowe, w tle kawa po turecku, pomarańcze. Goryczka średnia, tytoniowo chmielowo palona. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, odrobinę za wysokie.
Solidny Stout, nieco mało intensywny w zapachu, w smaku jest już za to bardzo przyzwoicie.

3.3
Michael27 (2105) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Untertitelt: "West Coast Style". Fast undurchdringliches Braunschwarz mit stabiler beiger Massivschaumkrone. In der Nase leichte Schoko-Röstaromen. Im Mund dringen winzige Futzelchen der Aromahopfensorten durch.
