Default Sierra Nevada Porter

My local grocery just started to carry this and I wanted to hear peoples comment on Sierra Nevada Porter. I love their Pale Ale and love Celebration Ale, but am curious to know if Sierra Nevada is as good at making a darker ale.

Yes, at least those times I've had it. I think of Sierra Nevada as the bride's maid of ale. It's been everywhere and it's always for sale!

The Porter is very good and the Stout is awesome. They're just a solid brewery all around...

great brew in my book! SN is a reliable brewery if you aren't looking to knocked out with excellence. A solid B grade, not the best in class, but no slouch.

It's a damned solid beer and one of my favorites. As you might expect, it's pretty hefty for a porter, but mighty fine.
