12oz bottle with Bottled 4/28/11 stamped on the neck of the bottle.
Pours pitch black in color. Even when held to the light, you can see virtually nothing other than black. Without a doubt the darkest/thickest Porter that I've ever had. One finger of beige colored head has settled to a thin lace after a few minutes or so, but the head retention is impressive.
Full on aroma of dark chocolate, anise, and roasted barley. Very nice.
Wow! This is one fantastic Porter. Big and robust with flavors of intense dark chocolate, hop bitterness, espresso bean, a hint of smokiness, and maybe a touch woody.
Full bodied mouthfeel with low lying carbonation.
This is the best Porter that I've yet to sample. Enough said.
Morey's Bottom Line: This is thicker and more flavorful than many breweries Stouts. I'm not usually a huge fan of the style, because if I'm going to drink a dark beer, I want to go all out. Well...fortunately for me, Founders went all out on this one. Cheers!
