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.

Nordcore (1446) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. black with a medium light brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, brown sugar and dark fruit. Light bitter taste with a nice chocolate and some caramel ending, nice.

Birra dal colore marrone scuro. Schiuma beige, fine e persistente. Al naso sentori di caff, malto tostato e crosta di pane nero abbrustolito. Al palato si riprentano le stesse note percepite al naso. Una buona stout.

Nevalainen (730) - 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 (1208) - 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 (282) - 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 (4338) - 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.
