This was a great porter. Founders doesn't disappoint with this one. Nice head and lace on the glass, deep black color, looks great. The nose and taste mimic each other well, burnt espresso beans and chocolate, with some nice hop character as well. The maltiness is more dominant than the hops but they do their work to give some cleanliness to the middle character. A little fruity and bready towards the end, just really good all around. Thick body, not too strong on the carbonation. Delicious.
Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
From the 12 oz bottle to a snifter.
A: deep dark brown/black with a thin one finger root beer colored head. The head dissipates quickly leaving little in the way of lacing or cap.
S: coffee, espresso, roast malts
T: coffee, roasted malts, some cocoa as well.
M: medium to full feel, good carbonation and smooth.
O: I have to say that I really enjoyed this beer. It is easy to drink and very flavorful. I would put it right up there with Breakfast Stout as one of my favorites from Founders.
