Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A-Very dark brown with a light brown head. Decent retention and lacing.

S-Nice smelling beer. Easily dectected chocolates and malts.

T-Good tasting porter. Roasted nuts, malts, and chocolate.

M-Too dark to tell the carbonation but its full bodied and smooth.

O-Good beer. Sierra Nevada has done it again with an above average porter. I would surely drink this again.

12oz Bottle

Appearance - Clear red/brown colour with a large size fizzy beige coloured head. I can't see much carbonation due the darkness of the beer and there is some fairly good lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for over 5 minutes.

Smell - Chocolate, malts, hops, roasted/toasted nuts

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation and I can taste chocolate mixed with malts and a roasted/toasted taste. There is also some hops and some light grapefruit. I swear I could taste there Pale Ale mixed in here. It ends with a chocolate/malt aftertaste with a touch of hop bitterness.

Overall – A very drinkable porter that has a nice dynamic with the light hop flavour. I could definitely drink a few of these in one sitting with no issues.
