Had this on tap at CW's Tap Room in my hometown.
Sierra Nevada Porter is a chalky brown, slightly transparent beer with a small head and minimal lacing. Smells mostly of roasted grains and malt -- nothing too impressive.
Taste? Creamy, heavy roasted malt flavor, high carbonation, bittersweet beer. Mild coffee. Some hops are present. A good, basic porter. Leaves with a slighty dry aftertaste.
Not much to say on this one. It's certainly enjoyable, although uncomplex. Great for an intro to the porter style, if you like this, you'll probably like most porter.
Serving type: on-tap

A - The pour is of a rich dark brown, topped with light tan foam.
S - Sweet malt as well as dark-roasted coffee and earthy aromas. Marmite twiglets.
T - Quite mellow on the palate. The roasted malt flavours are quite delicate and mix nicely with the caramel sweetness from the nose. A lightly hopped finish with a slightly metallic sheen.
M - Medium-bodied, smooth, easy-drinking. Balanced carbonation. Well-rounded
O - A solid session porter, but not as powerful and tasty as my favoured go-to porter; black butte.
