Medium of the range Porter. Cola syryp black. Taste of malts throughout...didn’t get much of a hop tickle. Much better as it comes to room temp.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 A nicely balanced Porter - medium bodied and medium carbonated - sweet malts with an aftertaste of hop bitterness - caramel and roasted malts with a hint of licorice - smokey, too. Enjoyable.

Generally, Sierra Nevada underwhelms me with their over-hyped selection of beers. However, this was an enjoyable surprise. A dark roasted porter with a burnt smoky finish. Highly flavorful and drinkable by the pitcher

Sierra Nevada has an uncanny ability to mass produce beer and keep their high standards of quality. This especially shines through in their porter. A very dark beer that goes down smooth and has just the right amount of bitterness. If you enjoy porters, give this one a shot.

Dark ruby brown, medium sized tan fluffy head. Some roastiness in the aroma, with a tinge of floral hop. Nutty, toasty flavors with a acrid note of roastiness. Resdiual malt sweetness with a gentle bracing of hop bitterness. Slight caramel flavor in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium light, and fairly smooth. My favorite from SN.

A rich, smooth porter, with a bit of sweetness contrasted a restrained roastiness.

Aroma had a roasted maltiness to it. Brown body with tan head and decent lacing. Flavor was of mixure of choclate and roasted nuts and little creamy. Smooth easy drinking porter.

Nice malty aroma. Good dark brown color, somewhat coke-like, but I hesitate to say that because some consider that to be a negative thing. The head is a nice tan color that lasted much longer than I expected. To my taste buds, there’s a bittersweet chocolate flavor. It has a slightly bitter aftertaste. The mouthfeel is smoother than I’d expect. I definitely enjoyed this beer.

Bottle. Dark brown/red pour, small thick tan head. Slightly sweet aroma - almost oil like. Sharp roasted malt taste - certainly a full bodied porter. A really well balanced beer. Lingering dry hop taste at the end. Nothing extreme just a very solid porter and a pleasure to drink.

Pours a light tan, five finger-head that vanishes slowly leaving a good lace. Deep amber color. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Nose is roasted coffee/chocolate. Starts with more malts than hops so some sweetness, roasted coffee flavor, finish has a hint of hops. $2.58 for a 12oz bottle from Northend Superette Manchester, NH.
