Poured from a pint glass into a nonic pint.
A - Black with ruby brown edges, and pours with a one-finger light tan head of creamy looking bubbles, which lasted a while before fading. A decent amount of patchy lacing.
S – A clean and subdued aroma of roasted grain and west coast hops.
T – Nice toasted barley flavor dominates, with some mild hops in the finish, but both tastes are very mellow. A tiny bit of chocolate and charcoal in the mid-palate. Nicely balanced. Not very rich or complex, but the flavor is enjoyable.
M – Medium bodied, with a lot of carbonation for a stout, but it works well with the mild flavor characteristics for an easy drinking experience. Finishes dry. Easy to consume in big gulps.
O – A nicely rounded and well put together stout, perfect for six packs. Honestly I could have easily finished this in just a few minutes had I not been taking the time to review it. Nothing special or memorable, but no real flaws, either. I’d gladly drink this again if handed to me.

I'm a fan of the few beers I've had from Sierra Nevada, I'm a fan of the stout style, so a marriage between the two was something I wanted to taste one day. I'm glad I did.
Delicious with some subtle sweet hints, but it still has that full-bodied coffee-and-dark-chocolate taste that makes the stout one of my personal favourites. If you're a fan of the style, this is a must try. I'm surprised I can't find it as easily as Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale or IPA, because if I could, I know I would pick this one up more often, definitely.
