A- bottle poured into a pint glass. Poured dark and had small amounts of amber on the sides. Not much thought. Pretty black. Nice lacing with a nice tan head about a finger.

S- Love the smell. Coffee and roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Very nice smell!

T- Sweet coffee with hints of chocolate but not much. The coffee really comes through but not overwhelming. I get a bread taste near the backside. This is how a porter should be!

M- The feel is prefect. Smooth and thick! No much carbonation in which i actually love from a porter.

O- Everything a porter should be. Its my favorite drinkable founders beer. I can take a 6 pack and just drink it all night. Once again founders has done it. Perfection!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Aroma:  Roasted malt, coffee, and hints of dark chocolate.

Appearance:  opaque black.  Half a finger of head.

Flavor:  Roaster malt, coffee, and chocolate flavors abound.  Hop bitterness balances well with the malt sweetness.  Finishes fairly dry with some hop bitterness lingering.

Mouthfeel:   full body mouth feel.  Almost creamy consistency.  Moderate carbonation.

Overall:  This is an excellent porter.  Nice roasty flavors with enough bitterness to balance the malt sweetness.  Very enjoyable overall.
