A- Amazing... Jet black with insane lacing, minor head.
S- Amazing... black patent, chocolate and very hopped maybe some coffee.
T- Amazing... chocolate, coffee, toffee, roasty, citrus and hoppy... You got a problem with that?!
M- Amazing... serious...really nice. Medium bodied.
D- Amazing... 5.6% Drinkability anyone?
Notes to self: Simply amazing. In my opinion, the best porter out there. If you haven't tried it, you hate your life. I left a lot out of this review... so go try it and try to tell me im wrong about an A+

Purchased a sixer of this at Campus West liquors in the Fort, poured into a stein.
A- Perfect dark brown beer, very dark, can barely see any light pass through this big, dark beer. A soft bed of foam sits on top, thick and bubbly, and very appetizing.
S- Sweet roasted malt and grains in the nose, but backed with coffee, bread, vanilla and a nice smokiness.
T- Again, strong sweet malts, balanced completely with SN's trademark hops character. An absolutely amazing beer; this is THE American porter, perfectly crafted to make a terrific session brew that is complex without becoming overbearing and overwrought. Perfect taste, perfect balance, perfect perfect perfect.
M- A big mouthful of a beer, but without being heavy, and the bold mouthfeel quickly subsides to a silky smooth finish that makes you want to take a big gulp and do it all over again. Medium carbonation, paired with a full body make for one amazing beer.
D- Again, perfection in a glass. This is one of a very few porters that I could keep drinking after the first. Not that I don't like porters, but this one is exceptionally drinkable.
*My first perfect score! And this after I thought I'd never find a Sierra Nevada beer that I liked. I am blown away by this, and this will be one of my new regulars in my fridge. Welcome home, boys.
