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

This beer was served out of a 12oz. bottle dispensed into a glass....

Presentation - Love the classy SN label and the short bottle.

Appearance - Pours out a deep brown with a 1.5 finger thick light brown head the sticks around for a while before finally dissipating into a nice foam ring. A nice lacing left on the glass the whole way down.

Smell - Smells of toasted coffee been with a hint of chocolate. Toasty malts with a hint of faint hop aroma.

Taste - Tastes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee with a slightly nutty hint. A nice mixture of black coffe bitterness and hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation.

Drinkability - Very smooth. Not as thick as some porters I have tried. This fact combined with the flavor make this very drinkable.

I have yet to be let down by any SN offering and this one is no exception. I enjoyed this very much and would reccomend this all day long.

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.
