Sierra Nevada Porter (5.6%)

Sierra Nevada’s Porter is really rather good.
It’s certainly far better than their Stout.
Pouring an impenetrable damson purple, it slouches in your glass smelling of chocolate coated raisins and thick toffee.
As you take a gulp the initial flavour is coffee and chocolate.
Really nice coffee and chocolate.
There’s also a load of stewed prunes, boozy plums and digestive biscuits.
The hops are soft and hazy, providing a decent floral lavender edge.
And there’s some citrus tartness too, but just a hint, it’s a light cleansing swipe that allows the gentle liquorice tinged maple syrup to leave a soft and lingering finish.
