This is a top-notch example of the style. Pitch black pour with thin mocha head. Bold, roasted malt flavors with distinct but not overdone coffee notes. Hopping is firm but appropriate for the American porter style. Founders understands that a porter is not a dumbed-down stout or pumped-up brown ale. The focus on roasted malt flavor is spot-on.
