@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark mahogany with a light head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is roasted malt that adds chocolate and a little chalk in the palate, moving to a finish that is already bittered. Very drinkable. Smooth. One trick brew, which leaves a bit to be desired.

Wow. Excellent balanced beer. Almost no head. The right amount of roast and hops. Bittersweet and delicious. Not overpowering and with a nice finish.

Un’ottimo standard di porter: caffettosa, con persistenza di malti tostati, leggero caramello, amarino finale. Buona. Sierra Nevada sa fare il suo dovere!
