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.

tgncc (2664) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
The aroma is roasted malt, with a grainy quality, coffee. Maybe a little bitter chocolate. the appearance is a dark brown, a little thin and translucent for the style, tan head. The flavor is cereal grains, rosated malts, coffee, sour milk. Not great. The finish has a slight bittering from the roasted malts. For this style, the mouthfeel is inappropriately thin/medium. I rarely find a porter I donít like. This qualifies as such. But Iíve had worse.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 12, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle this poured a very dark garnet red with a very foamy head and thick lacing. This head lasted seemingly forever. A very attractive pour. Nose is chocolate, coffee, and nuts. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side but is nevertheless smooth . Flavor shows a lot of chocolate malts and the finish is dry. While on the light side for a porter it is quite easy drinking.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Pours a deep amber brown with a thinning head and some spotty lace. Aroma is very earthy nutty, chocolate malt with some hints of licorice root. Flavor is earthy, cracker, cobwebby, dusty, bittersweet chocolate, burnt toast and extremely dry and fizzy in the finish- watered down. meh.

Bottle courtesy of BOLTZ7555 Ė thanks J! Pours reddish brown with zero head. The nose is faint coffee and cocoa. The taste is sour coffee grains and soot. Thin flat mouthfeel. Not good at all.

Coca-Cola pour produced a creamy head and moderate lacing. Aroma is instant coffee, smoke, and mild chocolate. Flavor exhibits a coffee bitterness and ash. Quite thin and weak for the style. Not sure Iíd pick up another six pack.

This porter starts off great but struggles as it goes. A great pour providing a black color and billowing brown head followed by a coating of thick lacing around the glass. Abundant aroma of roasted goodness, milk chocolate and coffee with a nice tobacco scent. Feeling great about the beer at this point and then the actual drinking brings me back down. Mild bodied with a thin finish and an awkward aftertaste of ashes. Flavor is a touch odd with notes of toasted bread, stale malt, cold coffee, and mild chocolate. A sprinkling of floral hops adds a bitter aspect. All in all the taste seems under developed. I expected more robustness due to the great aroma.
