Notes / Commercial Description:
Sierra Nevada Stout s a full-bodied American version of the traditional black ale. It is perfectly balanced with big roasted malt flavors and earthy, whole-cone hops.

In 1980, when we were building our fledging brewery, we needed a beer with bold flavors to test the new, hand-built brewhouse. That first brew was a stout rich with roasted malts and earthy, whole-cone American hops. We liked that original stout so much that we've kept it as we've grown. Decades later it still reminds us of that early pioneering spirit.

Pours out a deep black with a solid 1/2 inch head, lasting lace.

Full of roasted chocolate notes, dark malts, earth and slight citrus.

Chocolate, minerals, roasted cocoa, slight citrus, simple and well balanced. Thick and smooth.

An easy to find, inexpensive but well crafted stout!
