Sierra Nevada Stout ....

This evening's sampling is the Stout from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.  It is a twelve ounce bottle and 5.8% ABV.  The Sierra Nevada web site lists 50 IBUs.

This stout poured with a small head, which was a nice shade of brown, but not a real darker brown.  The beer doesn't pass any light through when held up to the light - a very dark, blackish brown.  I get some hops in the aroma, and a hint of chocolate.  It has a nice balance of hops and malt.  Not overly strong - probably a medium in strength.  Very little aftertaste.
