12oz bottle - Pours deep dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is pretty much the same with a nice hop kick thrown on the finish. On the palate this is creamy and mouthcoating. A delicious porter and one I could easily come back to again and again.

Sierra Nevada makes extremely well-balanced beers. Complexity, drinkability, everything is balanced perfectly. This porter is very drinkable, but could benefit only from having a little more flavor (I prefer SN’s stout.) Overall a very good beer.

Compared to the stout, this was ok. I am just so used to the IPMY’s so I fee this is a bit watery. Still, a very nice brew.

Bottle. I didn’t pour it, but I’ll post what I can. Excellent flavor of bittersweet chocolate and burnt coffee. Fairly light body for a dark beer, but very pleasant. Not overly heavy. Grreat creamy consistency. Malty body with a bitter hoppy finish. Very nice beer - by far the best I’ve had from Sierra Nevada.

Dark with a creamy head.Slight nuttiness with a hint of roast in the aftertaste. Quite a good example of this tyle

Coffee and chocolate aroma, clear burgundy, good sized toffee head, plenty of lace. Rich mocha flavour, toasty, some burnt almonds. Well balanced, quite bitter, woody and a very dry finish. Impressive!

On tap. Had this at a fireworks display, I was shocked to find anythig worth drinking. This is a pretty average porter, with a very roasted character. Not much in the way of layers to the flavor.

Bottled. Dark brown coloured with a small beige head. Aroma of chocolate with notes of liquorice and coffee. Nice roasted flavour with lots of liquorice, coffee and chocolate. Roasted and hoppy finish.

Good aroma and appearance. Smells like chocolate and roasted malt. The color is dark brown and the head leaves nice lace in the glass. The flavor is OK but you can really taste the alcohol and its a little on the bitter side. Besides bitter there are caramel and chocolate notes to this one. The after taste is bitter coffee.
