From notes, 6/15/11. Pours black with some brown at the edges. Light brown head. Good retention. Creamy dark chocolate. There are roast and coffee flavors, particularly in the finish, but this is a chocolatey treat. One of my favorite porters and an all-round fantastic beer. It’s lush and thick on the plate for the abv. Smell isn’t terribly strong, but the taste comes through big. Perfect malt sweetness for the beer. This is a real treat and probably my favorite dark beer from Founders, so far.

The pour produces a two fingered khaki colored head. This dissipates slowly taking on a pillowy appearance. The liquid is completely opaque. A strong expresso aroma. Tastes of burnt toast, sweet coffee, a little maltiness.... exceptionally well balanced. Silky smooth mouthfeel with just a little carbonation. One of the best porters I've had the pleasure of sampling. This will be a regular!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
I did a taste comparison late last summer with different porters and this one came out on top. So I am biased towards this beer. Imagine doing a comparison in the summer by the pool with Porters. Crazy.
Nice head with small tight carbonation bubbles. Dark almost amber. Medium to heavy lacing that stands up well.
Heavy coffee to a non coffee drinker. Has the sTrong "Porter" smell. A little chocolate hint to me.
A nice complex mix with coffee and little sweet chocolate aftertaste.
A smooth mouthfeel, the best of the comparison I did. Very satisfying and smooth.
A recommended Porter. I did not realize this was so highly rated, but I would recommend this to anyone looking for a Porter. I buy this one when in the local store and look forward to getting it on draught or a growler. Cudos Founders.
