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!

Nephilium (1359) - Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Mild roasted aroma, pours an opaque dark brown, with a light tan head. Chocolate roasted notes, and a bit more hop bitterness then you find in a porter. Light bodied, seems to be missing something, but not a bad porter.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled from BevMo. Very dark in color. Somewhat sweet chocolate nose. A light hint of creamy coffee as well. Roasted, slightly bitter coffee up front. Coffee seems to dominate throughout. A touch of burnt flavor and a taste of hops in the finish.

Thanks to spinrsx for this. Pours dark brown with a small light brown ring. Aroma is small roasted malts, some coffee and bitter chocolate. Taste is mostly a smooth roasted malts. I can pick up some bitter dark chocolate. Well done porter.

MarkBarnes (375) - Waterville, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Dec. 15, 2013; 12 oz. bottle from Winter sampler pack. Blackish pour; faint cocoa aroma. Chalky, chocolatey, appropriately-roasty, medium-bodied porter. Thin laceless head dissipates to nothing by the end of the glass (making dishwashing a breeze). Hop profile is less harsh than one would normally expect from Saranac.

cheap (4057) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Yes, from a bottle this stuff is very attractive in looks and smell. Malty choco smell and a big black pour. Taste is fairly mild black beer, easy going and refined. One of the better dark beers I’ve had lately. Yes, rather friendly and easy going, quite refreshing for a change. No really bitter rudeness in this one. Could drink a few of these, not bad overall beer drinken experience.

Bottle. Pours deep brown, near black, with thin khaki head and soapy lace. Nose of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is chocolate, coffee, roast. This is a pretty solid porter.
