COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the highest point in the State of Utah at 13,528 feet, Kings Peak is located in the Uinta Mountains, a major east-west mountain range in northeastern Utah. Kings Peak Porter lives up to its name by being big on flavor and complexity. It pours a rich, dark mahogany hue and is complimented by a creamy tan-colored head. Dark chocolate, toasted malt, and coffee may be detected in its nose.

skortila (4620) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2010
West USA trip 2010. Bottled. The aroma has some chocolate, roast. Clear, brown-black coloured porter with an off-white, thin head. The taste is a bit sweet and has chocolate malts and some roast. Dry finish. Light bodied beer and a bit carbonated. Must say, quite a nice porter for the low alcohol percentage.

brenn79 (1582) - Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle- Pours blackish brown with red highlights, aroma is creamy, milky and chocolate malt, nice indeed. The flavor is more bitter than the aroma led on. Medium body, kind of light on the palate, but has a nice chocolatey coffee flavor, maybe not the expensive gourmet shit, but maybe Folgers. Smooth drinkable and chugable.

omhper (19967) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2010
Draught at the Bard’s/Oddfellows, Cedar City, UT. Black, small beige head. Lots of chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied with fairly soft mouthfeel. Fairly dry with pleasant rich flavour of dark chocolate. Medium bitterness. Whoever designed this beer had me in mind - the combination of dryness, softness andrich dark chocolate flavour is spot on. Lovely porter!

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Dark rich black color. Malty, aroma sort of like cherry cough syrup (slightly). Not much body in it and a light almost unnoticeable flavor. Sort of disappointing after what it smelled like. Finishes cleanly, though that is not surprising since it tasted like cold water.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Tap @ Aces Game. Dark brown, virtually opaque, small lightly tan ring of head that laced a bit early on. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, molasses. Mouth is medium to a touch on the light side, light carbonation, balanced finish. Flavor is lightly roasty with coffee notes, molasses, not much else. Pretty simple, average in every way, but enjoyable and sessionable.

Bottle. Pours a cola brown with a moderate, beige head. Light malty nose, some roast. Light malt character, not much chocolate, some fruitiness, light tobacco finish. A bit watery. Thin body, average carbonation. Average overall, actually.

bozoNZ (718) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 17, 2009
Looks the goods but comes up a bit short. A little fruit plum on the nose. All in all a bit sweet and thin, lacking malt and balance and needing a little more dark charachter
