Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"Porters were invented as a fortifying drink for the rough-and-tumble working class of London’s bustling markets. It was brewed for good folks with calluses on their hands, doing work that needed to be done. We salute those working-class heroes with our classic Porter, brewed in the hop-forward American style and featuring a depth of malt flavor and complexity with roasted notes of black coffee and cocoa."

Hadn't had this beer in many years ...
Chocolate, coffee. Nice kick of hops, too. Some sweetness but with a sharp, slightly bitter citrusy finish.
Being lighter than a lot of porters and the lowish ABV makes it very drinkable.

5.6% ABV, 32 IBU
