Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico CA & Mills River NC
Sierra Nevada Stout is a full-bodied American version of the traditional black ale. It is perfectly balanced with big, roasted malt flavors and earthy, whole-cone hops.
Black with not much of a nose. Sweeter than what Father Jack remembers. More coffee than chocolate. Starts bitter and ends sweet. More subdued and balanced than the Anchor Porter. This was Father Jack’s first American Stout after years of drinking Guinness: it was much more bitter back in the day or his palate has changed over the years.
Would we have it again? Yes
Would we get a 6-pack? Nah…
