3.53/5  rDev -13.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A bit different than a traditional stout or porter in that the hops are much more pronounced in the smell and taste. Pours a dark black. Typical. I got a little over a finger of head with some bigger bubbles at the top most likely due to the more generous use of hops. Not as creamy of a head i was expecting from this stout but i understand its no Guinness or murphys.

Overall a very enjoyable beer. Wasn't the best stout i have had but it certainly was worth drinking. I have enjoyed pretty much everything sierra nevada puts out. Some day i will have to make the two hour journey north to visit their brewery. If you see this beer in your local store give it a try i think you will be surprised like i was. Cheers.

3.13/5  rDev -23.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

S- poured into pint glass from 12 oz bottle

A-almost no head, looks jet black, nice lacing

S-surprisingly very little aroma, smelled carbonation, not much else

T- carbonated dark chocolate, with a little coffee, hop finish at the end

M- nothing great, taste actually improved as beer got warmer, let second glass sit for ten minutes and taste got a little better

O- would try another brand if i was in mood for a stout
