4/5 rDev -5.9%
Poured from their 12oz bottle...
Appearance - Poured a finger of medium mocha head, color of the ale is a nearly opaque deep brown mahogany, nearly black.
Smell - rich black coffee, roasted malts, whiff of dark chocolate and floral hops.
Taste - Roasted malt, black coffee, dark bakers chocolate (unsweetened), slight minerals, and a touch of black licorice and bitter hops long into the finish.
Mouthfeel - nearly medium, there is almost a smoothness and a creaminess that is whisked away by the medium carb halfway through the sip - the carb adds a sharp tingle with some edges that usher in the hop characteristics, and some bitter black licorice.
Overall - This is a very good porter, but with my high expectations for Founders products I almost felt this was just a tad lacking - this opens up just a bit as it warms, and improves. I wanted this to be just a touch thicker, creamier, and a bit more mouthcoating. Definitely a very good porter, and one that you should try and judge for yourself.
