4.3/5 rDev +0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Nearly black, semi-opaque body. Rich tan head takes its time in settling.
Smell: Roasted malts, with a faint hint of chocolate.
Taste: Rich roasted malts again dominate. Subtle dark chocolate with a mildly bitter aftertaste. I can tell this is a Founders beer, because the taste reminds me a lot of their Breakfast Stout.
Mouthfeel: Quite thick. One of the more full-bodied porters I've encountered.
Drinkability: The alcohol is nearly undetectable, but 6.5% is in a dangerous ABV range in that one could easily get carried away without realizing it.
Notes: I must say, this is a top-notch American style porter. Many brewers would kill to have their STOUT this thick and creamy. It strikes me as a slightly lighter version of Founders' Breakfast Stout, without all the coffee flavor, and with more of an emphasis on the roasted character of the malt.
Serving type: bottle
