A - Dark, dark brown and completely opaque. 1-finger tan head. Decent lacing.
S - Roasted malt, chocolate and a hint of hops.
T - Before I had time to think, "Oh wow" had escaped from my mouth. Coffee is added into the flavors that were present in the nose. Hops round out the finish for good balance when the drink is cold. The hops were stronger than I expected once it warmed up, but I never mind a little extra bitterness.
M - Rich and creamy, bold, and lightly carbonated.
O - This is a bold porter, but Founders made it bold in all the right ways. None of the flavors are too strong or overwhelm the rest of the beer. They toed the line with hops without losing the spirit or richness of a porter. Excellent beer... I can't pick anything I didn't enjoy about it.
