COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust porter has a full body with some hints of chocolate from the chocolate malt and midnight wheat. The mild noble hop aroma showcases the roasty flavors and subtle fruit and spice notes of the artisan-roasted Fair Trade/Organic coffee of Black Mountain, NC’s Dynamite Roasting Co.

Pours black from the bottle, with a foamy, mocha-brown head. The aroma is distinctly reminiscent of coffee and milk, with a bit of milk chocolate and some kind of dry mineral character beneath. The flavor is pleasantly mild, with a light coffee bitterness and lactose sweetness predominating, although some herbal hops and bittersweet chocolate are also present. Overall, although the flavor is a bit dominated by the coffee character, it doesn’t change the impression of this beer as a pleasant, drinkable porter.

Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling, VA. Dark brown with a decent, beige, head. Rich coffee bean aroma and taste, avoiding any jarring bitterness. Also had some plain chocolate and a trace of leafy hop, before a dryish finish.

하이랜드 브루 - 썬더스트럭 커피 포터 5.8% ABV 검게 로스팅한 맥아, 밀, 커피로 브루잉 한 커피 포터. 드라이한 커피향이 주를 이루며 . 단맛없이 인스턴트 커피를 탄듯한 단순한 커피향의 맥주. 커피는 공정무역을 통해 수입된 오르가닉 제품이라고 한다. 전반적으로 드라이 하고 라이트 한 편이라 초콜릿 케이크라도 곁들이고 싶은 맥주. 달달한 디저트류를 곁들이 좋을 듯 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot
