4.06/5 rDev +3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Bottle: reasonable 355mL brown bottle with an original and decent label.
Appearance: Pours dark brown tending toward black, with a solid finger of head that drops to a creamy half-finger. Decent lacing also. A good-looking porter.
Aroma: as usual for a porter there isn't that much on the nose, however it is certainly stronger than the norm. Dark fruits, roast chocolate and a definite earthen character coming through too.
Taste: follows the nose, but more dominated by the heavy earthen character with the dark fruits, chocolate (presenting more like cocoa) and liquorice.
Aftertaste: the flavours follow through nicely, with a touch of bitterness hanging about too. A very easy-drinking beer.
Mouth feel: a tiny bit lacking on the mouth feel - a bit too light without much in the way of punch. Carries the flavours reasonably well but could be a bit heavier in body.
Overall: I'm not usually a massive fan of American Porters, but this is a goodun'. This beer held up quite well, decently thick and heavy in flavour, well-rounded too boot. Nice.

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.
