4.5/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: pours an opaque black with a very dark brown head that looks like hot cocoa, decent head retention and lots of lacing

S: huge roasted malt profile with an intense dark chocolate presence, extremely robust

T: like the nose, this porter is all about the roasted specialty grains, tons of chocolate malts and coffee, a touch of earthy hops on the finish, very nicely balanced and incredibly flavorful.

MF: medium to thick body, low carbonation, silky mouthfeel

D: well it's weird to judge this as an American Porter because it is far more like what I thought a stout was supposed to be. Then again, there is definitely some overlap between these categories, but the bottom line is that this is the best American Porter I have had. Founders has never disappointed me.

Serving type: on-tap
