beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle. Loved this west coast spin on a classic. Dark brown color and foamy brown head. Aroma of hops, but dominant in roasted nutty malts. Mixture of estery hop and roasted malts in flavor. At times like a brown ale, at others, smokey and sweet. Brown sugar and pine. IPA esters. Changed its character, but in the end, its lingering malt finish and dark roasted notes reminded me it was always a porter. Not a huge Sierra fan, but this is by far my fav.

poech73 (278) - Braine, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2015
@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 .

kermis (6998) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
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.

KyotoLefty (7556) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
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.

Turtles (503) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2015
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.

Scoobyluvshub (33) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle. Poured dark brown with tan head. Very light tasting been, some roasted malts, slight coffee. I didn’t get to much out of this beer to be honest.

jamaty (1242) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Marrón rojiza muy oscura. Abundante espuma cremosa y duradera. Aroma ricamente malteado, algo dulce y frutal. Cuerpo medio, bien carbonatada. En boca mantiene el predominio de la malta, con un sabor tostado, que también tiene recuerdo de café en el postgusto. Combina con un cierto toque picante y especiado y un regusto frutal ¿cereza?. Bastante rica, aunque lejos de la pale ale.
