Sierra Nevada Porter

Beer score: 7.6
Web site: Sierra Nevada
A strong maple taste, but not too much of a burnt taste. Dry in the mouth. Would go well with bar food or a steak. Very heavy, almost like a stout. The sweetness is strong, but not quite overpowering. According to author Bob Klein in The Beer Lover's Rating Guide, the beer called "porter" was originally called "entire." Apparently London porters of the 18th century preferred this type of heavy beer over others, so the beer came to be called a porter.
