3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 7, 2012 (purchased at World Market in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $1.99 on Nov. 7, 2012). Very dark brown with khaki tan head.
Above average wet and foamy retention on the sides of glass, good on the top.
Smelled roasted nutty malts with toffee, caramel, coffee (light), liquor (light) and cough syrup (light).
Tasted toffee, roasted nutty malts, caramel, smoky and bitter coffee beans (light). Still got a small amount of the cough syrup.
Medium-to-full body. Slick texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
A pretty good porter, which is no surprise given the brand. I’d definitely have it again.

Deep reddish brown. Very quick off white head pops up, but it is weak and frothy and hides until the bottom of the glass. Taste is a complex bitter that is enjoyable, but it lingers a little too long. Good beer, very drinkable for a porter, but nothing to write home about.

Bottle 355 mL, very dark beer with slightly tanned creamy head that lingers a little. aroma is very rich and intense with a marked tendency to roasted cocoa malts, the taste is sweet well balanced with the bitterness, chocolate malts very present but with a nice coffee and nuts touch, very pleasant, one of the best porters i’ve ever had and since its my 1st Sierra Nevada beer ill definitely check their others brews. great porter

@Flanagan’s. Beau Porter assez classique, sec, légèrement crémeux présentant un bel équilibre entre maltage et houblonnage. En effet, en bouche les saveurs maltées, d’abord chocolatées à l’attaque, assez acqueuses, se terminent avec un goût caramélisé légèrement aigre, avec un arrière-goût de noisette mais qui ne surpasse pas un beau houblonnage sec à la fois résineux et herbacé sans vraie longueur. Très savoureux à déguster .

Bottle at Klooster. Pours hazy brown with a big bubbly tan head. Aroma of roast, caramel, toffee and dark fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Basic but decent enough.

Good aroma. Pleasant taste at the beginning, but too fortified at the end for my tastes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Medium to dark brown, low head. Nose of cocoa primarily. Rather light, chocolaty flavor. A bit of roast in the finish, but not all that much. Simple but tasty enough.

350ml bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown, small fluffy off-white head. The aroma is fresh roasted malt, leather, nutty, coffee. High carbonated that give a fizzy sensation in the mouth, still creamy. Taste of herbs, roasted sweet malt, nuts, mild and smooth taste. Dry and clean finish.
