The beer poured a deep dark brown to black with a subtle tan head. At that point I allowed it to sit and warm as I knew it would improve. Once I returned I was rewarded with aromas of deep dark chocolate, sweet malts and a hint of coffee. The first taste was a deep roast with full chocolate and coffee that end in a subtle bitterness. The Porter was a velvety smooth and sublime beer that is a porter for all porters to be measured. I was impressed with the depth and fullness of the brew and how quickly it disappeared in my glass. The Founders Porter was one of the best porters I have had and an impressive beer for their year round lineup.
