COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, creamy ale infused with a generous amount of coffee, the Porter was developed by Mountain Sun brewers weary of drinking Stout for breakfast. The result is an ale where coffee aromas mingle perfectly with a roasted barley, hop finish. A unique treat including as thick a head as you will ever get on a latte.

jmgreenuk (4475) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2013
Tap at the Vine Street Pub, Denver. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin tan head. The aroma is rich roasted malt leading to a medium bitter flavour with a strong bitter hoppy spice, slightly watery palate. The aroma was great and then things got slightly worse. Still one of the better beers from the Vine.
