Pure black pour with a thick frothy head of tan and orange.

Aroma notes are of rich dark chocolate and coffee beans.

The character of this beer changes as it warms in the glass. First few sips are of chocolate but as the temperature rises my palate picks up vanilla and an attack of good hoppy bitterness.

Very chewy porter with a thick mouth-feel that will almost make you believe you are consuming a chocolate candy bar.

I don't think my stomach could hold more than a couple of these at a time but it is a very satisfying beer. Although not a seasonal this is a great porter for a fall evening or perhaps even a halloween party. I'm becoming very impressed with Founders as every beer I have tried has been exceptional.
