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.
Other than their Pale Ale every beer I have tried from Sierra Nevada has a wierd cardboard taste to it. I think maybe the porter and stout could benefit from aging. I used to love their Celebration Ale until '06 when I got some bottled poison from them. I tried the '07 Celebration and while it was not up to previous years standards it was some pretty good beer. The OL plowed thru 2 cases over the holiday. Good enough that I am putting a 12 pak away until next Thanksgiving.
Wow just checked back to this thread and it took off a little bit yesterday.
Based on the reviews I will definitely try the porter and hopefully the stout (havent seen it yet) in the near future. I do really respect Sierra Nevada as a great brewing company just from having their Pale and Celebration. In my opinion, their Pale may set the standard of APAs.
