Poured Founders Porter into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours black as midnight with a finger of mocha head with a aggressive pour.

S - Roasted malts, with smooth coffee. Light chocolate notes in there as well.

T - Bitter coffee and roasted malts. Some baker's chocolate mid palate with bitter coffee on the after taste.

M - Smooth for a porter, medium carbonation, with medium on the mouthfeel. This is smoother than most stouts.

O - A outstanding porter, it could be most brewery's stout, its just that good. Highly recommended. Cheers!

Yes, I am a bit biased toward a thick heady porter, but I digress from my point. This porter has it all...a bit sweet, a bit rich, a bit chocolatey, a bit coffee laden and a lot delicious. It pours smoothly from the tap and settles a little like a Guinness in your pint glass. On the inhale, the sweet and rich aroma gets your palate prepared for a nice sip of an almost a coffee ice cream milk shake-like goodness. This would go nicely with a hefty gourmet burger or even an acid cigar (perhaps the Kub Kuba for good measure?). Highly recommended.
