4.5/5 rDev +5.9%
This is an overall great beer! Got it in a trade with Rohkey. Thanks Chris! Poured this beer in my small Struise chalice. Pitchdark fluid with a very nive head. Good starter. The head disappears after a while leaving some nice lacing in the glass.
Smell is inviting but i can not detect much. Taste is with coffee. The alcohollevel is good on this one. Very good mouthfeel, not any carbonation but that is not important in a beer like this!

4.18/5 rDev -1.6%
Pours black as night, but not thick as I thought it would be. Can't be a judge of the head because I poured it very gently.
Smells of coffee and smokey, earthy, hops. Hints of chocolate or mocha too.
Flavor profile follows the nose almost entirely. Super flavorful and potent despite what you'd expect from the lower ABV.
Tastes of toffee and chocolate remain on the palette remain following each sip, and this beer stays with you long after you're finished drinking it.
It's a solid porter, but it leaves me wanting a breakfast stout or a KBS.

4.1/5 rDev -3.5%
bottle into tulip
appearance: solid black, tan 1 finger head, some lacing
smell: roasted malt, intense smokiness, some espresso/coffee aroma, dark chocolate, caramel, subtle vanilla
taste: dark chocolate, espresso, earthy hop bitterness on the tail end. For a Porter, this is pretty hoppy. This is very well balanced, smokiness and coffee flavors come out when it warms. Very, very smooth.
mouthfeel: full bodied and thick, lots of carbonation
overall: A very smoky, hoppy porter, this is another amazing brew from Founders. Did a blind test with Bells Porter and Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald, this one wasn't as smooth as the Edmund, but hands down better than Bells. If you like dark, hoppy beer, you will enjoy this, very drinkable and lots of flavor complexities.
