Notes/Commercial Description:
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!

Black opaque color with mild to no carbonation with decent head. Chocolate roasted malt aroma. Roasted coffee, little bit of chocolate, caramel, and malty flavor. This beer was garbage last year but this year this has improved ten fold. Taste is well balanced. Really good beer this time around. More chocolate in the finish. We'd love to have this on draft.

12oz bottle thanks mike67. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma and Taste is of sweet roasted caramel malt, with some mild slightly burnt coffee with some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a roasted caramel malt and some burnt coffee flavor and mild bitterness same as taste. Not as robust as some other Porters but overall a good porter.
