Solid coffee stout. Jet black with a nice brown head that leaves a few gobs of lacing. The aroma is flat out coffee with some sweet malt that lends to the iced coffee vibe. The taste is sweet, char, coffee and a bit of a bitter finish. Like all SN beers this is just solid and good. Would drink again for sure.

Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a dark black color with a tan foamy head that softly dissipated to leave some sly messy lace.
The aroma had a huge roasty to sweet coffee bean and grounds up front with a delicate bitterness coming in for a nice balance. Some dark grains and an expected dark chocolate sweetness.
The flavor leaned towards the mesh of the roast to the bitterness at first and then developed a light sweetness from the dark chocolate to stride on into the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Some of that roastiness does get a bit "rugged" but honestly, wasn't cumbersome. ABV felt fine. Carbonation felt appropriate.
Overall, as a coffee stout, Sierra Nevada did what they wanted to with this. I'd have again.

I bought a mixed case from Costco which included the coffee stout. It poured an opaque dark with thin ecru head this leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of coffee. The taste was coffee. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid stout.

Love Sierra Nevada Stout - a standby and one if the best too me - Coffee Stout was good - but was a little thin for me (I like heavy stouts) and the coffee wasn't dark or toasty enough for me - as I love dark, bitter coffee. That being said this was still enjoyable.
