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!

Bulk_Carrier (3016) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - FEB 1, 2013
It pours a dark brown close to black and leaves a decent half inch white foamy head that immediately dies into the body. The smell is roasted malt, hops and coffee. The taste is bitter as the coffee and hops are taking precedence. The taste is bittersweet between the hops, coffee to the malts, comes through pretty nice. The palate is about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. It leaves a bitter and dry aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is a good beer for its style and its good for me, I’d come back to it.

appearance: dark brown, short creamy light tan head. aroma: suitably roasty, with dark chocolate and coffee, maybe a bit of vanilla. taste: coffee first, then a bit of dark chocolate and finally a dose of pine. finish: dry and roasty, smooth and with a bit of those piney hops and dark chocolate lingering. notes: A perfectly fine porter for an unseasonably warm November day. Good palate, balanced flavors.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Dark brown color with a medium frothy beige head that diminishes quickly to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and slight hops. Light body with flavors of chocolate malt, mild coffee and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pretty generic porter, strongish coffee notes are dominant, some floral hop notes as well.

Beerathon (1668) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Surprising hop presence in this, almost plays off like a black IPA. Nice roasted malt flavors of coffee and bitter chocolate. Tastes better than it smells. Cola-esque in appearance, with thin bubbly head.

This is a wonderful dark chocolate porter with a tan head that is smooth with an aftertaste.

No aroma. Black, medium tan head. Dry, cardboard and charcoal, weak. Finishes with walnut. Light body, moderate carbonation. Underwhelming.

Thick and deep flavor. Very chocolaty and malty. I really like this dark and comforting beer. Absolutely will look to buy it again.

A black beer with a tan head. Roasted malt, toffee flavours. Semi-sweet but also a tad bitter aftertaste. Heavy.

Deep, dark chocolate brown. One finger of light brown head. It looks like a very legitimate porter. Leaves a decent lace. Aroma is a soft, nutty malt: hazelnut, mocha, breakfast blend coffee with just a touch of sweet (but not too sweet) caramel. I’m shocked at how good the aroma is on this. Taste is nutty, but less pronounced than the aroma. As it warms up, the coffee bitterness really explodes. The nuttiness balances the sugar/caramel sweetness very well. It’s almost like a coffee with cream but also a shot of espresso. The feel is chalky and dusty. This is a very solid beer, I should hope that Saranac would keep it in their regular rotation.
