3.88/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 5
Pours very dark brown to black and lets no light through whatsoever. Three finger foamy beige head that settles to one finger after a minute or two.
Smells malty and chocolatey. I'm also smelling a sort of carmel smell that's hard to describe.
Tastes like it smells ....malt and chocalate. Has an almost cola taste here too. Smooth, but with some interesting hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Very very smooth going down! The taste really develops as you work your way through the beer. Has a bit of a roasty and nutty taste as well.
Feels quite carbonated in the mouth, and that combined with the smoothness is why I gave this beer such a high drinkability score.
I really liked the chocolate and coffee tastes in this beer....proabably because I really like coffee and chocolate. These flavors combined with that fact that it's very easy to drink make this a potential personal favorite session beer.
Note: I probably drank this a little to cold and way too fast. This mother is really....really drinkable. Goes down almost way too easily.

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.
