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.

Gehbe (448) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - OCT 6, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Pours black with a big stable light tan head and lovely lacing. Rich aroma of coffee, chocolate, toffee, dark bread crust, hints of prunes and wood. Perfectly balanced taste. Coffee-like texture, medium body and carbonation, somewhat sticky finish. Wonderful!

Cristobal37 (1154) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2016
Roasty chocolate aroma some hops and oats. Thin head which mostly dissipates. Toasted roasted flavor, prunes, chocolate, hoppy, maybe even a slight medicinal black licorice. Very complex and flavorful. On the hoppy side, but that’s to be expected right? I like it a lot. Less than 6% wow badass stout.

Sierra Nevada delivers again, their porter used to be my favorite but it has some competiton from their stout. Speaking of their stout it pours a dark black body with adequate carbonation, a thick tan head that disapates fairly quick and it leaves good lace. Aroma of toasted malts and a slight hint of fruit. Flavor of chocolate hits first, then the toasted malts creep in with fruits present in the background. The mouthfeel is slightly bitter and it has a dry finish. Overall a pretty good stout, another good beer from sierra nevada. Originally rated on 10/17/08
