A: Gorgeous dark reddish brown hue with a big head that dissipates to a 1/2 inch head; lacing is fantastic

S: Rich roasted malts and coffee and chocolate shining through especially; man, this smells roasty and malty and awesome with just a touch of hops underneath

T: Rich malts and roasty malts: coffee and chocolate but also some dark fruits flavors; this is so tasty and even a bit hoppy

F: So creamy...so creamy; and velvety and awesome

O: Man, this is a good porter...my new favorite; it is so malty and smooth and yet bitter and creamy and just plain delicious; glad to finally see Founders across the river in Iowa...mmm

A: Deep dark black and thick looking. Mine didn't pour with a large head, but I've had this before when it gushed. This was recently bottled so I'm fairly sure it's not an age thing.

S: Rich milk chocolate, some really rich molasses aromas. Really pleasant.

T: Lots of cocoa, baker's chocolate or dark chocolate. Some toasted malts and coffee beans.

M: Thick and full bodied. Almost syrupy. Really creamy texture with enough carbonation to really make the flavors pop.

O: An excellent porter, especially for the dark chocolate lovers out there. I'm not sure what to make of the inconsistency in carbonation, but I'll overlook that since on both occasions, this brew was exceptional, with and without a head.
