Sierra Nevada Porter

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, CA and Mills River, NC

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.

5.6% ABV

Black as pitch with a scent of chocolate malt on the nose.  Fairly sweet on the palate, but not cloying.  There is also a roasted malt bitter base that contrasts well to the chocolate sweetness.  Very smooth and satisfying.  Not at all heavy and quite drinkable.  This was Father Jack’s introduction to Porters back in the day and still among his favorites of the style.  He wonders if anyone has seen Sierra Nevada Stout recently?

Would we have it again?  Yes

Would we get a 6-pack?  Yes
