Tennessee

4.03/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Color is a very dark brown to almost black. Its cream-colored head is thick and long lasting, a nice looking beer. Scent is roasted malts and a hint of citrus. The taste follows the smell, which is quite good - roasted malts up front, with a touch of grapefruity bitterness in the finish. A nicely balanced beer.

3.99/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a very dark amber, almost like a soda. A white, two-finger head. Leaves a moderate amount of lacing in the glass.

Smell: A lot of rich malt, a hint of coffee. Dark fruit?

Taste: Like the smell, there is a lot of malt up front. I pick up a little bit of chocolate, but I'm mostly getting this lovely roasted malt flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a slight amount of carbonation. Goes down very smooth.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. It's a very drinkable porter and a +1 for Sierra Nevada! This is definitely a beer I could enjoy for years to come.
