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
