The first sip of this beer raised my eyebrows. I have always been a big fan of their hoppier offerings, but the stouts were good and not great. This stout is very good. Everything that you would want in an oatmeal stout. The creamy texture. The medium-to heavy-texture. Pours a pitch black color with almost not head head. A aroma is smoky with roasted malts and light mocha. Lower carbonation reduces the nose a bit. The aroma is right on but not as strong as I would have liked. The taste is where this beer really shines. Its not Old Rasputin, but i think it's close. Flavor is smooth roast, dark fruit, sweet dark oils, coffee, lactose, metal, smoke. Very good. Well done Sierra Nevada

A - Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a one-finger, tan head of bubbly foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of mocha, roasted malt and molasses.

T - Great tasting - chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. A touch of piney bitterness added balance.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a really good stout. I wish they could make this a year round offering.
