Dated 11/17/13. Today is 1/5/14. Poured into a pint glass.
Black with a chocolate brown 2+ finger head. I saw some other reviews that didn't have the head or lace this one does. The initial foamy head was rich and thick. A nice layer left all the way through the bottle. The lacing sticks to the sides nicely.
Sweet smell of milk chocolate hits the nose first. A little roast in the middle. Slight hop aroma last. Smells delicious.
Taste of bitter hops and malt. There is a subtle chocolate flavor. Quite tasty.
A strong medium mouthfeel with nice effervescence that coats the whole mouth and dances on the tongue.
I drinkable, full on porter. Verging on a Stout. I like this very much. Founders hit another one.

A - Just about jet black. Poured looking like oil or syrup. Thin, non-persistent dark tan head and quickly fading lace
S - Sweet and roasted nut. Maybe some spice somewhere in there. Some coffee notes as well.
T - Pretty good. Taste like a good dark chocolate mixed with roasted...something. I don't want to say roasted nut again but pretty much. Starts off as a burst of dark chocolate and finishes nice and bitter. Burnt dark chocolate is the best way I can describe it.
M - Not much to say. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Pretty drinkable.
O - Overall this is a good porter. A tad bit too bitter for my liking, but still real good. Reminds me very much of Guinness Extra Stout.

Pours black with a nice mocha head. Aroma is a touch smokey, extremely roasty giving offf some nice chocolate and coffee tones. Flavor is a touch smokey as well, wonderfully roasty with some great dark chocolate and coffee and a touch of char, and a nice intrusion of some bitterness from some hops in the finish. A creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, an absolutely fantastic porter here. Just as good, just different, from my favorite porter, Odell's Cutthroat Porter. Loved it, will absolutely be drinking lots more of this one.
