look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle into a tulip. no date.
appearance is good with a dark brown pour that reveals amber highlights in the glass. forms a decent size head but fades to a thin film pretty quick. got a few (very few) spots of lace.
smells mostly of chocolate malts, but there's also hint of molasses and floral hops in there somewhere. taste is more like a dark roasted coffee with tangible hop bitterness to even things out. finish is quite dry with a bittersweet tinge. taste becomes fuller as it warms up.
medium bodied, but has too much carbonation for my liking.
this is one easy drinkin' porter and very sessionable. most of the american porters i have tried seem to lean one way or the other - they are either malt heavy (which i like usually) or they are overly hoppy. most people seem to say this one is very hoppy, but to me it strikes a balance right in the middle. very solid and definitely worth seeking out.

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.
