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.

tricksta_p (4037) - 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.

Pallleon (243) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 27, 2017
Stout ltre nagyon knnyed sr. Amg a legtbb stoutot kpes vagyok 30-40 percig iszogatni, addig ez a sr sokkal gyorsabban elfogyott. Nincs benne semmi klnleges, semmi extra, az alkoholtartalma is mrskelt. Pont ez az ami tetszett benne. Szerintem, ha elővennnk a nagy srknyvet, akkor ennek a receptje lenne a hagyomnyos stout cmsz alatt.

alteregoo (1202) - POLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Piana obfita, drobna, całkiem ładna. Barwa prawie czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat średnio intensywny - mleczna czekolada, karmel, świerk, dojrzałe cytrusy. W smaku płsłodkie, intensywnie kakaowe, czekoladowe, w tle kawa po turecku, pomarańcze. Goryczka średnia, tytoniowo chmielowo palona. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, odrobinę za wysokie.
Solidny Stout, nieco mało intensywny w zapachu, w smaku jest już za to bardzo przyzwoicie.
