Founder's just doesn't mess around. Definitely one of my favorite breweries. Primed up for a 12 tap takeover in around a week at the Thirsty Monk. Pours a thick dark brown with a tan creamy head. Nose is burnt malts and cocoa. Taste is surprisingly clean with roasted malts, cocoa, a little coffee and a blast of caramel that surprises. A very nice porter.

A- Black body with a small tan head that leaves nice lacing.

S- Tons of fresh roasty chocolate malts and coffee, more on the bittersweet chocolate side of things. Some smoke.

T- Dark black bitter chocolate with some acidic roasty coffee some light hops give support to the coffee bitterness. Hints of milk chocolate sweetness close to the finish.

M- As heavy as this is on taste there is a light airy feel to this. Moderate to high carbonation.

O- Top notch porter, worth going a little out of your way for this. Very solid all around hits all the spots a porter should.
