look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a nice black brown with a thin mocha head. This looks like what some lesser breweries would call their stout. Pours with a nice body and some viscosity.

Smells of toffee, roasted coffee beans, bits of charred wood, dry cocoa powde, some vanilla and oak characteristics as well.

Bitter dark chocolate, smoky tobacco, definite roasted malt characteristics. Unknown sweetness in the middle, with a mild bitter finish.

Medium bodied with the carbonation of an aged beer. Smooth, rich, almost creamy, and just a bit thinner than a stout.

This is on another level of most other porter's I have had. A perfect example of what a porter was many decades ago and needs to become again. Another top notch style representation from Founders.
