Pours a black brew with a medium brown head with regular retention, aroma is moderate sweet and moderate bitter with dark chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and herbal hops, Medium bodied, smooth, well balanced, low carbonation, flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a bitter finish and a bittersweet aftertaste. Delicious

Bitter in the front, smooth and slightly chewy in the back.

I love the surprisingly bold addition of hops that bucket balances the smooth chocolate base.

Good when its cold but better as it warms up

Chocolatey and smooth as heck.

Can't go wrong with a 6 pack of this in your fridge.

Jet black with very little tan head. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee aromas. Bitter coffee and roasted malt flavors dominate. Some very slight hops are present as well. Moderate carbonation.

Great porter from Founders. Fantastic balance between malts and roasted flavors with a smooth body that makes this brew surprisingly crisp.
