Look: It pours dark brown with a brown head. Head retention is excellent.

Smell: It has strong aromas of roasted coffee and expresso. There is also a bit of roast in support.

Taste: It has a strong coffee and expresso flavor. There are some background flavors of cocoa and some roast.

Feel: It has a medium body.

Overall, it is certainly a beer for coffee lovers as that is what the aromas are and what the flavor is.

Pours a deep black with a thin tan head.
Smell is sweet chocolate and bitter coffee. Some hints of prune and date in the background.
Taste is molasses and dark fruit along with some hints of char. There are hints almost like a cola. Not a flavor I'm in love with.
Mouthfeel is also a little lacking. A bit thin and feels like it would be better called a coffee porter.
Overall this is an odd stout that doesn't quite sit well with me. It's not terrible but it leans toward a barleywine to my taste buds and ultimately seems to have a foot in a few camps and not really nail anything.

Poured a rocky tan head. Jet black, clear when held up to the light.

Smell is the dregs of the office coffee pot at 11am, but in a good way. Roasted malt notes liven up the nose. Dark chocolate after giving it a good swirl.

Taste is bitter, roasty, and a touch sweet on the middle of the palet that hangs out. Some nuttiness on the finish. Some minerality in the aftertaste. Alcohol is present and provides a nice warmth to the beer.

Mouthfeel is a bit too aqueous. This beer could probably also use smoother carbonation. The pricklyness of the carbonation doesn't quite compliment the flavors in the beer.

Overall, this is a very drinkable coffee stout that is low on challenge and depth. This is a fantatic beer to give to a friend that "doesn't like dark beer", but enjoys their coffee black. Would be a good companion with fish and chips.

Has an odd, almost sour note to it. Some coffee flavor on the finish. Body and carbonation are appropriate for the style.

Looks jet black like stout, nice fluffy creamy head mocha colored. Smells like milk chocolate, coffee,damp hay. Tastes like chocolate,coffee, some mild stone fruit. Feels incredibly well constructed by folks that know their business. Overall this is an exceptional medium ABV stout. I highly recommend.

Pours a dark brown with a cream colored head. Strong smell of coffee upon pouring, little bit of milk, and malt. Taste is like a black, medium roast coffee, touch of sweetness along with the coffee bitterness, little bit of chocolate and malt flavors. Coffee flavor is not overbearing. Fades pretty quick on the finish. Medium weight. Nice coffee stout, doesn't wow me but it's solid and makes for a nice, post-dessert beer.

First off, I'm a huge fan of Sierra Nevada. Great beers at pisswater beer prices. This one, however, is the worst I have tasted from SN. Tastes like old coffee that sat on the warmer all day long. Burnt coffee aroma and taste. Could barely finish the glassful. The other 2 from the Snowpack will go in the cooler for my Christmas party and I hope somebody else drinks them. Ugh.
