Appearance: I poured this dense viscous black beer into my Spiegelau tulip; it is opaque with a capped nicely at the top with a thick chunky head that came back strong and dense with the swirl of a glass. It left large thick legged lacing on the glass all the way down.

Smell: Big roast up front - malts and fresh ground coffee - with a health dose of hops shining through.

Taste: As full flavored as can be; roast bomb on the front with dark chocolate and coffee beans, followed by a surprising amount of hops - although it is indicative to the Sierra Nevada style. The finish starts off with drying bakers chocolate, and progresses to a black coffee ending.

Mouthfeel: Thick, creamy, and viscous. A nice level of carbonation keeps the aroma pouring out of the beer and lively on the palate.

Drinkability: For an imperial stout - HUGE. This bottle was very easy to champion and would have followed it up with another.

Notes: This is 1 of 4 specialty beers brewed for the 30th Anniversary of Sierra Nevada. I enjoyed this on the exact 30th anniversary of their first batch of beer brewed - 11/15/2010. It was perfect; in every way. Sierra Nevada's love for hoppy beers comes through in well balanced offerings time and time again. I was just as impressed with their Tumbler Ale - a perfect dose of hops to a brown ale without being an Indian Brown Ale. I would not change one facet of this beer, and if there was only one stout I could drink for the rest of time, it would be this. I need to go get another bottle - or 3.
