great pub great beer. pours foamy dark chocolate brown with a nice thick nitro head. smells like a cup of coffee with notes of vanilla and bitter hops. flavor is really really good, more than just a coffee beer it really marries the flavor well. has the same pick me up power as a full cup of coffee and is smooth and satisfying enough to session all day. my first experience at mountain sun was a good one and i will definitely be back.

First had: on tap at their brewpub
Poured an opaque obsidian, nearly indistinguishable from a stout, with a small tan head that receded to a patchy layer after being allowed to get closer to room temperature. Roasty aroma, dark malts and coffee notes...as expected. More of the same in the taste, though honestly, the coffee wasn't as pronounced as I'd have thought it would be, and I actually got more coffee flavor from one of their stouts. Still good though, so I can't complain. Not quite full-bodied; quite drinkable.

Black body, tan head.
Aromas of java; sweet, life sustaining, nectar of the gods java.
Nutty coffee beans, sweet mocha, bitter espresso.
Dark and satisfying. Roasted barley and coffee joined in fermented bliss. Overselling it? Absolutely, but if you stop by, drop $4.20 on a pint, you'll be glad you did.
Oily mouthfeel, suitable carbonation, bitter chocolate finish.
A sessionable porter.

$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.
