Damn. I put off trying this one for a long time. After growing up on their pale ale, Sierra Nevada simply wasn't the first name to come to mind when I thought "stout." Serves me right for being narrow-minded, I guess. This beer pours jet black in color with a very thin, very dark tan head. The aroma is grainy and rich, with very subtle fruit notes. Very slight alcohol nose as well. And of course, it wouldn't be Sierra Nevada without a noticeable hop boquet. Flavor is rich and roasty. Quite full-bodied, with a great bitterness from the combined hops and burnt malt. Finishes dry with a great bitter aftertaste which hangs around for a while. Quite a few steps up from Guinness in terms of aggressiveness, but the bitterness here is by no means off-putting. Great stout.

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
