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.

On nitro tap at the brewpub on 7/17/09. Nice dark black with coffee and chocolate aroma. Nice little sweetness up front and then a great bitter mocha finish. Incredibly smooth (nitro) but also great on the regular tap as well. My rating may be biased as this is one of my favorite styles, but don’t let that take away from this beer, it really is fantastic. This is exactly what I wanted from this beer. I tasted 197 beers on this trip and this was one of the more memorable.

Opaque brown pour. Lovely coffee aroma. Very smooth and nice. Fantastic coffee flavor that leaves a finish Starbucks would envy.

$4.20 for a pint on tap at Mountain Sun. Dark brown-black. Smells malty, coffee, not too shabby. The flavor was a coffee-heavy porter but it worked in this case. I don’t usually dig coffee beers but this one was alright and had a smooth mouthfeel. Very easy to drink. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 05-09-2009 20:53:16

Pours almost black. Smells like the bottom of the coffee pot before the last cup is poured. Very small head, with intense coffee aroma. Decent balance in flavor, with cocoa, coffee, and a chocolate vanilla blend. Somewhat chewy. One of the few Mountain Sun beers I enjoy
