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!

12 ounce bottle, winter sampler, from Harris Teeter Barracks Charlottesville. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roast and dusty notes. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts and a bitter roast finish. Mild hoppiness. Medium bodied. Simple, but quite nice.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid dark brown with 1-finger frothy tan head. Nose is rich choc malt, cacao, mild coffee and hops. Tastes of heavy coffee, choc malt, on the dry side, with finishing hops and jalapeno oily coffee flavor. Pretty rich for a Saranac offering, with a charred finish. Comes off like a hoppy dry stout.

alexsdad06 (5408) - Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2014
12 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours brown to dark brown with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, earth, so me ash. Body is a bit thin, otherwise not bad.

kramer (4941) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is quite burnt and roasty for a Porter, lots of burnt caramel and a bit of a rubbery note. The flavor is a little too burnt for the style, it has a bit of a rubbery quality throughout. It’s lacking in chocolate and coffee flavors like I look for in a porter. Medium bodied, a little clingy and sticky with forced fizzy carbonation. Kinda reminds me of Yuengling Porter, as if its lagared. Not a winner, even for Saranac.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a huge foamy brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish, bitter and roasty. The flavor was dry, bitter and roasty with faint cocoa and cola. Medium length dry roasty cocoa finish. Medium body. Eh.
