Color marrone scuro con brillanti riflessi rosso rubino; la schiuma, molto persistente, è beige, fine e cremosa. Al naso netti sentori di pane nero, con un’interessante ed insolita componente aggrumata in sottofondo; presente anche liquirizia, tostature e cioccolato amaro. L’aroma è molto pulito e di buona intensità. In bocca, c’è grande pulizia e un ottimo equilibrio tra toffee, tostature, caffè e leggero cioccolato amaro. Ottime le sensazioni palatali: birra morbida, oleosa, dal corpo medio e dalla carbonazione moderata. Nel finale, oltre alle attese tostature, c’è anche una lieve nota vegetale.

loubar (76) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Nose of toast, coffee, yeast. I found this to be a very pleasant, middle of the road classic porter. I suppose it could have been richer or smokier or sweeter, etc. Instead, this is a bit towards the lighter side. Tasty, smooth, drinkable and refreshing.

Fantomasus (226) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Not my favorite Sierra product. Pours a brown cola with an off white head that sticks around. Aroma: cereal, light resin, dough, some banana. Flavor is fairly balanced but there just isn’t much going on. Too watery. It’s drinkable. I would drink it again but I won’t buy it.
