4.38/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
(4.0) A: Pours black with a relatively thin head that quickly forms a brownish ring. Patchy lacing down the glass with short lived retention.
(4.25) S: Cocoa, dark coffee, vanilla, nice fruity qualities, and a steady caramel backbone. Very good contrast between the roasted malt and the bold hoppier-fruity elements.
(4.5) T: Similar to aroma with roasted malt and hoppier (citrus fruit-like) tastes in unison. Vanilla, caramel, and a faint smoke are all detectable. The bitterness is very well balanced and an appropriate (and noticeable) dryness lingers in the finish.
(4.5) M: Medium-full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Perfectly creamy and slick. Outstanding.
(4.25) D: This is one of the best porters I’ve had to date and could easily drink plenty of this stuff frequently. The mouthfeel is tremendous with a creamy and thick body.

Dated 11/17/13. Today is 1/5/14. Poured into a pint glass.
Black with a chocolate brown 2+ finger head. I saw some other reviews that didn't have the head or lace this one does. The initial foamy head was rich and thick. A nice layer left all the way through the bottle. The lacing sticks to the sides nicely.
Sweet smell of milk chocolate hits the nose first. A little roast in the middle. Slight hop aroma last. Smells delicious.
Taste of bitter hops and malt. There is a subtle chocolate flavor. Quite tasty.
A strong medium mouthfeel with nice effervescence that coats the whole mouth and dances on the tongue.
I drinkable, full on porter. Verging on a Stout. I like this very much. Founders hit another one.
