3.75/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Pours a pitch black color, completely opaque, with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly and completely dissolved into a very thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer in wispy clouds and gripped the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Very malty with some strong roasted barley aromas. I get notes of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, and dark, crusty bread.
Taste: Like the aroma, the flavor is very malty with some notes of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and caramel. There are faint notes of licorice too, followed by and finished with some hoppy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium with a little chewiness to it. Smooth, but practically no carbonation. With an ABV of 5.6%, there’s no presence of alcohol on the palate.
Overall: This is a very, very solid porter, one of the best examples of an American version of the British classic, in fact. If you like porters, this one will definitely please you. I’ll certainly get this one again!

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.
