02/12/06- Purchased at Ledger's Liquors in Berkeley, CA.

Presentation- 12oz bottle with no freshness info. Poured into my Sierra Nevada pint glass.

Appearance- Black opaque pour, full 3/4 inch head and above average lacing.

Smell- Dark sweet roasted malts, light hops, and a fruity kind of scent...plums?

Taste- Roasted malt flavor with a mild semi-sweet taste as well as a light hop bitterness. Not as much fruit flavor in the tongue, but still a touch of dark fruits.

Mouthfeel- Medium carbonation, lightly creamed in texture. Mild bitterness in the aftertaste.

Drinkability- This one if just fine. Tasty, easy to drink and quenching. Sierra Nevada usually doesn't fail.

Definitely a great stout unique in its own way. THe color is black.Low carbonation and head.The taste is hoppy pine, chocolate,slightly burnt malt,but is still easy to drink.It has great flavor combination going on. I could drink this anytime of the year or day. haha. Try it!

A - This one poured with a black body...the brown head exploded to stand about three fingers above the body...it showed good retention, lasting almost the entire beer...nice lacing

S - The nose is your typical roasted malts and hops...with chocolate notes and the citrus hops standing out

T - The flavors follow the nose...a roasted malt presence that isn't too roasted but it could be a little deeper...the malts present a dark chocolate flavor but not much caramel sweetness...the ending is filled with those citrus hops and it becomes a little bitter and finishes with a coffee flavor

M - Medium bodied...smooth with a great finish

D - This was a nice stout...I love how the hops stood out and I would expect that from Sierra Nevada...and easy stout to enjoy
