On tap at Denver location. Black. Thick lasting creamy brown head and lacing. Steady carbonation. Very nice roasted malt and coffee scent. Smooth creamy coffee porter. Almost a hint of vanilla. Very good. Lots of coffee. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Draught at Mountain Sun, tasted on both CO2 and Nitro. A little brown in light but basically non-transparent black with small dark tan to brown head. Aroma is malty rich, biscuity, but most of all coffee. As in aroma, flavor is dominated by coffee also. Other notes are burnt malt and chocolate. Like coffee, finish is long, wet with a bitter finish. On Nitro it has less head and less bitter. notalush (5878) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Tap at Vine Street - mmmm, this stuff is nice - jet black pour - dark tan had - nose of dark roast, fresh brewed coffee - rich flavor - a lot of coffee, but very little of the bitterness associated with it - some notes of chocolate and anise as well - creamy mouthfeel - very nicely balanced - roasty, semi-bitter finish, but with lingering creamy sweetness behind it - tasty! cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2009
On nitro tap at the brewpub on 7/17/09. Nice dark black with coffee and chocolate aroma. Nice little sweetness up front and then a great bitter mocha finish. Incredibly smooth (nitro) but also great on the regular tap as well. My rating may be biased as this is one of my favorite styles, but don’t let that take away from this beer, it really is fantastic. This is exactly what I wanted from this beer. I tasted 197 beers on this trip and this was one of the more memorable. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2009
Sampler at the Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery, Boulder 12/10/2008
Coffee roast aroma. Small tan head. Dark red coloured a little rich on the palate and fruity with a crisp and slightly bitter roast finish.

Opaque brown pour. Lovely coffee aroma. Very smooth and nice. Fantastic coffee flavor that leaves a finish Starbucks would envy. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2009
$4.20 for a pint on tap at Mountain Sun. Dark brown-black. Smells malty, coffee, not too shabby. The flavor was a coffee-heavy porter but it worked in this case. I don’t usually dig coffee beers but this one was alright and had a smooth mouthfeel. Very easy to drink.

Pours almost black. Smells like the bottom of the coffee pot before the last cup is poured. Very small head, with intense coffee aroma. Decent balance in flavor, with cocoa, coffee, and a chocolate vanilla blend. Somewhat chewy. One of the few Mountain Sun beers I enjoy That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra on tap at the brewpub. Thin. But plenty of coffee and chocolate. It’s aight. Smooth and unoffensive. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2009
