Had this at lunch at Kieran's Pub in Minneapolis. Very pleased to see it on the menu. Poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Founder's Porter pours a very dark brown color, almost black, with about a finger of mocha colored head. Lacing is a moderate layer of fine film after it reduces.
Smell: Lots of roasted malts, some chocolate, and just a touch of smoke. It smells very rich.
Taste: I've got to say this is one of the richest porters I've ever tried. Lost of roasted malts, chocolate, and vanilla. Classic porter taste, just great.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with a little carbonation. Viscous, very smooth and creamy on the palate. Delightful. This is absolutely an awesome tasting porter. My favorite of the style that I've had.

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.
