An excellent porter. I get the taste of autumn in every sip. The nuts and smells of fall.
My favorite Porter with the Edmund Fitzgerald 2nd.

This beer was purchased as a sixer from Wine and Beer Westpark in Glen Allen, VA - fresh - poured into a tulip - live review - the beer is in front of me.

This beer. mama mia.

Black as night and just damn sexy lookin. The head is perfect and the carb is perfect. The crown is a mocha color that leaves a trail of tight lacing behind.
Smells dark.. yeah. Smells of roasty malts with coffee and bittersweet chocolate
Tastes like love. Honestly I really don't have words. Perfect balance of bittering hops and malt sweetness with a pinchy bite on the back of the tongue from the dark malts bitterness.

I want to shake the hand of the man or woman that brewed this beer.

Go buy it or trade for it. I have not personally had KBS or FBS but this is the best of 4 founders beers I've had. get it. now.
