Fatehunter (2534) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Finger and half of light tan head. Black, brown on the edges, color body. Soft roasted malt smell and hazelnuts. Taste starts with a light roasted malt, quickly moves to bold burnt wood, a bite of bitterness, finishes with the roasted malt. Really nice profile. Creamy texture with a bit of fizzy, but only moderate carbonation. A pretty awesome stout.

Nevalainen (726) - 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.

oobawa (1193) - Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2017
UPDATED: APR 6, 2017 Probably Sierra Nevadas most underrated beer. Pours a lovely deep dark brown, almost black, and gives up a moderate off-white head with minor lacing. Nose isnt 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.

Myonlyvice (279) - 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 (4305) - 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.
