While in Utah, I was able to spend some time at Uinta Brewing to sample out this beer, which is their King’s Peak Porter. If you read my earlier beer blogs on their beers, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into the beer.
This beer has a jet black color with a big white head on it. The smell is between chocolate to coffee to it. The taste is chocolate and coffee with a nice coffee finish but fade to it. It is a pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.uintabrewing.com):
Roasted chocolate malts influence this full-flavored ale. This sessionable porter is black in color and well-balanced.
Delicate hop character balances a mild bitterness. Hints of expresso and dark chocolate mixed with fruit. Mildly sweet. King’s Peak pairs well with classic hearty, cold-weather dishes such as chili, stew, and roasts. Also pairs well with hearty dishes, and cheeses such as gruyere, emmenthaler, and swiss. Have a sweet tooth? Try King’s Peak with chocolate and maple flavored desserts.
Named after the highest point in the State of Utah at 13,528 feet, Kings Peak is located in the Uinta Mountains

Closing, Uinta Brewing was fun and I was glad to tour the brewery. I was able to sample some beers that I cannot get in the Chicago market. I was also able to talk with the owner Steve. I had a really great time and I want to thank Steve and everyone at Uinta Brewery for showing us around the great state of Utah and their brewery. As far as this brew, it is a pretty rich chocolate and coffee. This is pretty drinkable beer or I just want it to be a drinkable beer for being a porter. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
