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.

Rastacouere's rating

Dark brown pour offering a diminishing creamy beige head. Well extracted malts propose large roastiness immediately reminding of espresso. This foreground character is paired along with gentle balancing floral hops and a most fitting grapey chewyness. Finishes on tobacco and cola notes, without any disturbing acidity and drier than sweet. Light bodied, thin, yet creamy texture, soft carbonation, very roasty and balanced at that. Probably my favorite from the Mountain Sun I’ve had.

On tap at Vine Street Pub & Brewery. Black appearance with a tan head and light lacing. Aroma of coffee, earth, roast, light pine and cocoa powder. Similar flavor, mildly bitter and lightly sweet with an average body. Pretty nice overall.

Draft at vine st. My rating is poor because I don’t like coffee. If looking for a coffee beer, this is for you. Seriously just tasted like a cup of coffee, guess there was alcohol in there

jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - 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.
