Surprisingly hoppy compared to a lot of porters out there. You get some roasted malt & bitter cocoa up front but then a punch of hops bitterness. A bit of a clash for my personal taste, but still a solid beer. Founders always makes well balanced brews so even if one or two notes are a bit unexpected they never overpower the rest of the beer.
