Sierra Nevada Porter

Dead Soldier
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Sierra Nevada Porter
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
Chico, CA USA
Est. 1980

Brain Damage Quotient = 5.6 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 12.0

Postmortem Brew Review
Dark brown color.
Roasty malt aromas with scant aromas of hops.
Good two finger head frothy tan head that coats the glass.

Good head and lace retention.
Subtle sweet malty taste; just a bit of hops.
Medium carbonation.
Medium bodied mouth feel. Very smooth and balanced. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Again and again, Sierra Nevada impresses.  The Porter isn't a knockout, but it is perfectly characteristic of what a good porter can be.  This has a creamy head that is silky smooth along with a rich roasty nearly full bodied flavor.
