BEER INFO

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
California, United States
sierranevada.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Porter is a testament to roasted malts which give it a rich, bittersweet and roasted coffee-like flavor that's a perfect complement to a variety of foods.

Before Sierra Nevada was a reality, our nights were spent perfecting homebrews and dreaming of starting a brewery. Back then, one of our favorites was a porter made with homemade malt roasted in our kitchen. Decades later, we still love the rich, bittersweet and roasted malt flavors of that original brew.

very dark brown, but not quite black. off white head. aroma is a touch sweet - a touch of milk chocolate. same with the taste - not a huge amount of roast flavor. medium body, lower carbonation.
