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
