Bottled. Almost black colour, with a creamy beige head. Wonderful, roasty chocolate flavour up front along with a little licorice. Mouth-filling and tasty. And pleasantly dry with a bitter finish.

A very nice example of the porter class, not ground breaking or a pusher of the edge of the genre, but all in all a great example of what a porter should be. Pours well, laces well, nose is very nice, with hops, yeast and roast playing very well together. Coffee is strong on the attack and lasts through the finish. Some dark chocolate and bitter fruit tastes play in there too. Finish long and smooth.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2006 Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and a small beige head. Aroma and taste is of coffee, mocha, roasted malt and chocolate. Has no shortage of hops, moderately sweet. Slightly burnt and bitter aftertaste. Medium porter body with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Good head retention. Overall, a very solid, full-flavored porter. Recommended.

This is a very decent Porter with good flavor. Lots of good flavor with a good roasty and coffee taste. I would recommend this

Bottle. One of the Sierra products I still really like. Black with ruby around the edges. Sweet, roasted malty aroma. Taste is smaoky, coffee and light chocolate. Medium bodied with a decent hops bite. This is still one of my favorite porters.

Coffee and chocolate nose. Jet black, low creamy white head. Sweet chocolate, some sugar - mellow profile.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Frothy tan head, dark brown body. Strong coffee and roasted malt aroma with spice tones. Roasted malt and coffee is dominating in the flavor. Some hop and flower notes also. Little thin in the finish. Nice one!

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2004
Another porter that makes me want to be a BJCP judge just so I can tell the difference between these and stouts. Rich roasted malt aroma thick with chocolate and a touch of coffee. Dark brown with ighlights around the eges. Head starts at 1/2 inch and stays as a light film with a light lacing. Bitter chocolate and strong coffee notes right from the start. A touch of sweetness and fairly zesty on the tongue. Nice long bitter finish. I’m in heaven.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Nice and dark with an off-white head. Good lacing. Roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Flavors are the same. Very smooth, creamy and thick. A little dry on the finish but a good palate overall with a subtle coffee flavor. Not bad at all.
