look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Everything was ok except for the taste of this one. It's very heavy and dark but the taste was just too much-tasted burnt-more so than even the smokiest of rauchbiers. Surprised this beer scores so well. I thought it was just off-maybe I got a 6 pack that burnt on the bottom of the tank!

This is the only beer I've had from Founders and have heard lots of good things subsequent to this tasting so I guess it is surprising how much I didn't like it. Will give them another try but will pass on their porter-this one just didn't do it for me.

2.65/5  rDev -37.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz twistoff into my Harpoon Liviathan Baltic Porter glass.

Appearance: Dark black, can not see through it. There was NO head and no laceing.

Smell: Roaster malt, chocolate and coffee.

Taste: Was just OK, malts, strong coffee and a little chocolate came through. Almost a creamy finish.

Mouthfeel: I get a lot of coffee and not much else with no carbonation.

Drinkability: I do not have the desire to finish this one. It is just OK and I would not buy another.
