look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
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.

exactly what i want a robust porter to be. way richer and fuller than Black Butte and pure chocolate whereas Black Butte reminds me of charcoal. Not like Edmund Fitzgerald either with its slight smokiness and average thisckness mouthfeel. the closest similar beers would probably be Gonzo baltic porter by flying dog or maybe washington tavern porter by yards due to its full mouthfeel and rich chocolatyness
A= dark, black, nice tan head, nothing wrong here
S= roasty chocolate and some sweet malt. hints of coffee
T= same as nose, very full rich mouthfeel, sweet but with hop and roasty bitterness to balance.
O= One of my favorite interpretations at the style, very enjoyable and full dark beer at half the abv of an imperial stout. Will have to keep this around
