From a twelve ounce bottle in the 2014 Winter Collection

It has a somewhat peaty aroma. Pours nearly black with ruby red highlights and a small beige head. Head retention is decent, reducing to a spotty film, light lacing of glass.
Taste is mild coffee, bitter chocolate. Very crisp. Purportedly named for the elevation of nearby Mount Porter! Possibly Saranac's best offering yet!
