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.

ASPETTO: marrone scuro con riflessi rubino, scuro, quasi impenetrabile. Schiuma beige chiara, fine e abbastanza persistente. AROMA: non intenso. Leggero tostato, caramello e marzapane al caffè. Leggerissimo cacao. GUSTO: torrefatto, caffè. Leggerissimo cacao. Amaro nel finale.

Flaska från SB. Mörk brunsvart vätska med krämbeiget gräddigt skum som ligger kvar. Rågigt syrlig i doften med välrostade och något charkiga toner. Även en del sötare toner av torkad frukt, gräddkola, ljus choklad och vanilj. Ruskigt välkomponerad doftmässigt. Kroppen något åt det större hållet, len och lätt bubblig. Smakmässigt ganska nära. Den rågiga syran och de rostade tonerna ligger i förgrunden. Fin och modest kaffebeska bryter igenom i avslutningen och växer till i eftersmak. En av de markant bättre "vanliga" porters jag smakat. Riktigt trevlig.

355ml bottle into shaker. Looks great, deep mahogany red/brown with two finger tan coloured head. Nose is distant dark chocolate and cocoa. Smooth texture, taste follows nose. Finish has fruity tang undercutting the smokiness. Easy to drink, typical porter.

Not much dark malt smell, odd but not bad. Strange light texture, crisp and almost refreshing. not much of anything stands out except how light it is
