COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Standing 4059’ above sea level, one of the Adirondack high peaks, Porter Mountain, is the inspiration for our 4059’ Porter that is full of roasted flavor. Brewed with English chocolate malt and English hops, you’ll taste roasted coffee and chocolate flavors from the malt balanced with a slight hop bitterness. Whether you’re up at 4059’ or at sea level, this style will have your taste buds climbing with excitement!

Bottle. Milk chocolate malt and light ash aroma. Dark brown with moderate tan head. Dark chocolate malt and mildly bitter herbal flavor. Pretty good.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Roasted coffee and fudge aroma. Brown to nearly black in color. Black coffee bitterness, looks like they came up short with the sweetness here, as the malt is strictly burnt. The usual Achilles’ heel for Saranac is in the body, and this one is no exception as it is to thin. Otherwise a solid offering.

MarkSachon (635) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from the holiday sampler case. Pours with a medium head and a nice dark malty color. Medium to medium heavy with a nice finish. For the relative cost of the case, this is well worth the investment. One of Saranac’s better brews.

Itzjerm (1401) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 A bit to bitter with slight astringent flavor and malt astringent aroma. Thin to medium body. Not to good honestly. Aroma of bottle also.

Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft beer.

ADesenberg (630) - Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle: dark chocolate brown with a tan head. Aroma is sweet, chocolate... Roastiness. Flavor is smooth roasted chocolates. Bitterness is slightly off putting for some reason. Not bad, though.

Patrickctenchi (4107) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle: Pours almost black, with a tall, dark oatmeal head. Light bitter chocolate, coffee scent. Taste is the same....watery, roast malt.....thin. Too bad, nice balance, but weak. Needs some backbone.
