Good stuff. I drank a 6er a few months ago for some research on a porter recipe. Classic flavor profile with the kick of american hops. I like it - the Porter equivalent of an American PA.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Sometimes it is nice to have a well carbonated dry porter with pine, citrus, and choclate notes and without a heavy sweetness. This is it. Perhaps too much carbonation for a porter which I sometimes down in evening after dinner. Nicely done yet I cant rate this as high as SN PA or Stout.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2006
bottle. Aroma: Roasted malt, coffee, little chocolate, anise, and a note of smoke. Some hop aromas peek through as it warms. Appearance: Dark brown and clear. Tan head was full and rocky, but disappeared quickly. A little lacing. Flavor: Nice roasty flavor. Coffee, chocolate, and the smoke in the nose comes through stronger in the flavor. Hop bitterness was good and I detected a little grass flavor in the hop finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Slight oiliness in the mouthfeel. Hop bitterness lingered a little longer than I would have liked. Overall: A good American style Porter, meaning its loaded with hops. The hop flavor and bitterness is good, but lingers a little to long. A very good porter, but there are better choices out there.

Black/brown with little white head. Aroma of roasted malts & coffee. little sweetness. texture is medium to almost watery. Finish has slight hoppy bitterness. But basically there is too little of everything here! OK pleasant though!

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Brown with small head. Smells like fresh roasted malts. Tastes the same with nice body.A little too much fizz but other then that its a good porter

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Pours dark brown/black with small fluffyl head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and some hops. Flavor was similar with the roasted giving it a chocolate-like taste and mild sweetness. A noticeable hop presence was giving it just enough bite to please the hop worshipper in me. Another nicely done brew from Sierra Nevada.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a nice fluffy light tan head. Has the typical roasted hop, coffee flavors that is surprising smooth. An overall good porter that is easy to drink and finishes with a slight hint of dark chocolate.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head with massive lacing. Aroma was dominated by a delicious roasted malt quality and some chocolate. A good thick mouthfeel carried flavours of coffee, smoke and sweet roasty malts. A bitter dark chocolate finish.
