pours black with a beige head.. Nice amount of lacing around glass.

Nose gives me chocolate.

Taste recalls a smooth iced mocha. Very refreshing dark flavor. Bittersweet dark chocolate, espresso, earthy dry finish.

I'm comparing this side by side with their porter. This is much smoother and creamier. The tastes are similar but the stout blends them better with the mouthfeel to create a mocha sensation.

From what I could gather, the porter and stout have very similar taste profiles. The stout is smoother and creamier, while the porter is more crisp and a tad bit sour.

Pretty good, better than a lot of stouts, not so much a liquid Hershey Bar, still sticks to the Sierra Nevada corporate general flavor, which is very good indeed.
