look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a twelve ounce bottle

A: Very dark brown with nice frothy head. Good retention. Reveals some deep ruby tones when held to a light.

S: Some chocolate, semi-sweet with coffee and deeply roasted malt in the nose. a bit of floral hop aroma in the back with slight alcohol hint.

T: Hops up front. Chocolate not as present as in the nose. A bit of a tangy citrus and roasted, perhaps a little burnt malts. finishes with an earthy tone, coffee been and slight alcohol kick.

M: Smooth and velvety, becomes a nice, creamy froth as it travels my pallet

D: Good session beer, or to have a couple with dinner

Yet another Great offering from the Sierra Nevada Brewers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A--Pours a dark brown/black with a medium foamy head that thinned out a bit as the beer settled. Good lacing afterward.

S--Not a lot in it, surprisingly, but maybe my nose is just a bit stuffy. The scent of coffee is definitely there and very enticing.

T--Very good example of a porter for me. Malts and coffee, followed by chocolate and then just a bit of a bitter finish.

M--Medium to thick feel, just how I like a porter. Light carbonation adds to it as well, just enough of it.

O--It's been awhile since I've had a Porter, but this one was great. Another hit from Sierra Nevada. The label calls for big malt flavor and it delivers. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Packaged January 29, 2014.
