Sierra Nevada "Stout". Catchy name, eh?
Ever had a beer with no head? The reason why is apparently because Sierra Nevada stole all the head from other breweries and put it in this beer. It reminds me very strongly of a stirred-up rootbeer float. Thick, light-brown and long lasting.
I really appreciate a thick chewy texture in a stout and this one does well in that regard. Somehow seems to get thinner as it warms up. Mild bitter aftertaste. It reminds you that you've been drinking it, but doesn't interfear with your meal. For the price it's a great value. Simple flavor but with some character flaws, or in other words, personality. A good introduction to stouts for beginners or easy stand-by for seasoned drinkers. It has all the right stout clues with nothing too over-the-top. Smells like leather. Reddish color if you can see through the glass.

Dark brown with a big off-white head. Aroma is resin, licorice and toasted bread. Taste is roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. DavidSvinth (210) - DENMARK - SEP 15, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Næsten sort i glasset. Fin skumtop.
Ristet malt rammer næsen, og bagefter frisk humle.
Smagen er som forventet kaffeagtig, brændt og med chokoladenoter. Men der er også en tydelig humlesmag, som går fint i spænd med det mørke.

335 ml bottle. Pitch black with a creamy lightly tanned head. Roasted aroma with coffee, caramel malts, chocolate, liquorice, a subtle smoked note. Herbal hops and citrus. Taste is bitter roasted. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and roasted bitter with dark malts. Very fine Stout. hbiermann (11) - - SEP 6, 2017
Light flavor. Kinda nutty. Great appearance with good foam and nice lacing. Flavor was fine but nothing super special. Did not like the smell.

2015 BJCP Category:20B American Stout
AROMA: Strong hop presence of pine, resin and slight citrus (seems a bit too hoppy for the style). Moderate dark malt presence with some coffee character (I’d prefer more maltiness). 8/12
APPEARANCE: Very dark brown hue (39-43 SRM); large tan frothy foam. Retains and laces well. 3/3
FLAVOR: High hop flavor and bitterness throughout. Citrusy up front with more dank resiny/piney flavor on the back end. Base malt is dark but not particularly sweet, though there is a coffee and roasted malt taste on the finish. Seems a bit too hoppy for the style; needs more malt flavor. 14/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium-low carbonation. Smooth, though hops and roasted malts leave a slightly drying aftertaste. Feels a bit lighter than 5.8% ABV. No alcohol presence. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: A West Coast style stout bordering on Black IPA. Good, but is it really to style? 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 34/50
