Founders Brewing Company - Founders Porter, poured into a Craftgeer snifter.

Look - Pours a rich oily brown-black and settles black with a small soapy head that retains for a bit. Great lacing.

Smell - Sweet caramel and chocolate. Roasted malts as well take up the rear. Some coffee. Faint hops.

Taste - Sweet and malty, some roast and coffee. Hop profile is slight but detectable.

Mouthfeel - Sits sweet with roasted malts and dry. Great drinkability. Medium to moderate carbonation. Medium-bodied.

Overall - Super drinkable porter, another Founders win. No complaints on this terrific brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

a: Pitch black. Half finger high brown head dissipated quickly to thin surface foam.

s: Mild dark malt.

t: Mild dark malt, coffee, chocolate and smoky finish.

m: Light to moderate. Smooth with a lingering chocolate/coffee smokiness and hop bite.

o: Exceptionally drinkable porter without being watery or feeling cheap. Had as a dessert but should go well with beef and other red meat.
