Presentation: Bottle and label and simple and classy with a very elegant old school feel. Label gives web info, brewery info, and states “Rich, Dark, and Sexy”. Neck label has Founders logo as well as IBU and ABV info.
Appearance: After a 10min warming I aggressively poured this from its 12oz bottle into a 16oz snifter. Pours out a dark cola brown with lots of bubbles and a 1½ finger brown rocky foam head of medium density. Head retention was 2min 33sec before fading to a thick coating and ring. Excellent lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells of roast coffee malts along with hints of dark chocolate, caramel, and slight hints of dark fruits and hops.
Flavor/Taste: Tastes of dark chocolate and caramel sweetness on the front-end with a slight hop bitterness coming through at the midpoint before being quickly over powered by the dark deep roast coffee bitterness.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with an above average amount of carbonation that goes down smooth. Very drinkable.
Overall/Comments: I was very impressed with this porter and think it is a fine example of the style that boasts a very nice nose and excellent flavor profile. While I wouldn't put this in the Edmund Fitzgerald class, it is just a notch below. Classified as an American Porter @ 6.5% ABV. Consumed 5/16/2013.
Serving type: bottle
