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.

Damico (2524) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Poured regular and nitro back to back. Aroma is incredible, generous amounts of roasted coffee so pleasant in the nose. The flavor brings big roasted coffee as well with a creamy body on nitro. Smaller and more delicate are the flavors than the aroma, but the roasted malt profile is enjoyed.

NachlamSie (2738) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2013
8 oz. on nitro at Vine Street Pub. Pours near black with ruby tints. Pretty decent coffee in the nose, it’s no Bells java stout, but it is certainly delightful. The flavor has some creamy, almost tart and dry notes. Dark chocolate and flavorful coffee make up the flavor. Solid.

Brouwerij (915) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2012
On tap at Mtn Sun. Pours an opaque black with a half finger of tan head that disappears in minutes. The aroma is dominated by roasted coffee, hints of roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet malty up front, fading into strong and rich coffee tones. Finish is somewhat bitter and the coffee flavor lingers. Moderate carbonation and medium body, with a slightly astringent finish. A very enjoyable beer with bold coffee flavor.
