Sierra Nevada Porter

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co

USA

Porter is my absolute favorite style. This is an old beer, the precursor to stout. You don't run into this style very often. Sierra Nevada has done itself proud. A dark, smoky ale, with a sweet, malty flavor, lots of hops and carbonation. I really feel there's more flavor in a porter than a stout. Besides, every time I pour one up I remember that scene in "The Quiet Man", when John Wayne says, "I'll have one of those black beers." And the publican says, "Ah, the porter. Yes sir." This is a perfect winter beer to sip on and listen to good music and read a good book. Too gay for you? Fuck you, then, go drink a Michelob Ultra.
