12oz bottle from local Meijer. Black pour into tulip. Appears like root beer with offwhite lingering head a half inch tall. Smells like vanilla and syrupy malt, a little sarsaparilla scent too. Medium/large body with lots of carbonation. Sweet at first with malty cola taste, flavors of chicory and black licorice. Finish has a big roasted taste, a little sour and dry. Nothing bad, enjoyable but nothing too unique either.

Bottle shared at hopaholic. Deep brown colour small offwhite head. Nose is strong cocoa. Taste is low bitterness low sourness. Lingerig cocoa aftertaste. Nice! Bebum (964) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Dark copper, tall brown head.
Coffee nose, intense.
Full body, creamy texture, full flavored, soft, well carbonated, low heat mouthfeel, good length, clean finish.
Bitter, dry, gentle acidity.
Dense coffee flavor, as if mellowed by cream like latte, dark roasted grains, somewhat smoky and ashy.
Tasty, big but not massive stout, well balanced, a pleasure to drink if you like it dry.

Birra dal colore marrone scuro. Schiuma beige, fine e persistente. Al naso sentori di caffè, malto tostato e crosta di pane nero abbrustolito. Al palato si riprentano le stesse note percepite al naso. Una buona stout. Nevalainen (745) - FINLAND - APR 28, 2017
The color is black with beige creamy head, looking nice. Aroma is little roasty, coffee notes and touch of toffee. Taste is well balanced with bitterish start and dry sweet finish, flauvour of coffee. Very nice stout.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2017 Probably Sierra Nevada’s most underrated beer. Pours a lovely deep dark brown, almost black, and gives up a moderate off-white head with minor lacing. Nose isn’t great, offering modest mocha notes backed by pine. The taste rocks, however, dry and bitter, roasted unsweetened chocolate against an espresso background, offset by the slightest hint of caramel. Stays restrained, never going overboard on the cocoa or coffee, instead gaining a piney hop bitterness on the back end, leading to a bitter, dark roast java fade. Creamy texture only adds to the repeat drinkability. Classic session stout. Thomas_W1 (783) - Rastatt, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2017

En god positiv overraskelse. Fin smag af humle. Dejlig frisk øl. Meget mørk og fyldig. Myonlyvice (287) - 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. ffaoe (780) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2017
light roasty aroma with faint hint of chocolate. black in color with nice brown head. taste is of roasted barley, faint notes of coffee.
