From notes on 04/07/12:
Bottle code: 1122119:27; Poured in a pint glass.
A - Over an inch of light tan fluffy head with nice retention; Approaching black in color with just a faint garnet hue of light coming through; Really nice webs of lacing left behind
S - Fairly faint aroma; Notes of wet, earthy and floral hops, brown sugar, caramel, anise, vanilla, roast, tobacco, molasses, and a bit of chocolate too
T - Like the aroma, wet leafy/earthy hops are present with some floral and anise character as well; Quite a bit of roasty flavor comes through with accompanying caramel, molasses, toast, vanilla, and light chocolate; Pretty light and pleasant bitterness
M - Carbonation is a bit below moderate; Medium bodied; Overall taste has a wet mouthfeel, but finishes somewhat on the dry side
O - This is a solid, all-around stout from Sierra Nevada that brings a tasty flavor and would be very easy to consume in numbers. If you're looking for a stout with solid amount of both hops and roasty character, look no further as this offering certainly does the job well.

Center poured from the bottle into an imperial pint glass. Had to stop mid pour or the head would have spilled out over the counter. Dark brown with a massive light tan head.
Smells pretty good, however the hops are too prominent. Nice taste with the same feeling about the amount of hops present in a stout.
This beer is a little too watery for the style.
Not a bad beer, I wouldn't turn it down but I won't buy it again, too many others taste better.
