swampwater (53) - Preston, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Aroma: A sour, alcohol aroma. Slight notes of malts, and raisins.
Appearance: Almost black, with suspended yeast, and a lingering caramel head.
Taste: Malts, currants, and brown sugar.
Palate: Quite bitter at first, with a smooth and sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Light carbonation.
Overall: Not bad at all. I’m not a porter fan, but this was decent. The yeast suspended in the beer didn’t make it look too appealing, but the taste was there!

Kolor ciemno br?zowy, pod ?wiat?o z wyra?nymi rubinowymi refleksami. Piana spora, drobno p?cherzykowa, kolor be?owy. Pozostaje w szkle na tyle d?ugo by mo?na by?o nacieszy? si? jej widokiem. Zapach bogaty w karmel, nuty palonych s?odów, delikatnie przypomina o sobie te? ?liwka i rodzynki.Smak jest bogatszy od aromatu, obok wcze?niej wspomnianych karmelu, ?liwek i rodzynek w tle pojawia si? s?aba kawa, ciemny chleb i nik?e nuty czekolady. Porter od Sierra Nevada jest w swojej fakturze bardzo g?adki, prawie aksamitny, przez co pije si? go bardzo ?atwo. Goryczka, która jest na finiszu ka?dego ?yka jest delikatna i bardzo przyjemna. Z minusów móg?bym wymieni?, zbyt du?e nasycenie, oraz alkohol, którego cho? nie jest du?o, to jednak jest mocno wyczuwalny. Mimo tego warto spróbowa?.
