This is truly the standard in Coffee Porters. Slight tan head resting atop a deep brown body. Pours smooth, notable coffee aroma. Rich Mocha flavor, slight carbonation - perhaps more than many such stouts and porters. Rich mouthfeel and lingering sweetness.

Holy freaking crap, I get to try this courtesy of the former BeerKangaroo and currently HighDesertDrinker (I so want to meet this highdesertdrinker guy)

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was mainly a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within a minute and leaving a slight spider web slim lacing here and there.
The smell was mainly roasty with a fine black coffee sort of eloquently aromatic fine toothed sort of way.
The taste was roasty and just a tad of sweet with a fine toothed coffee toned aftertaste and finish.
The mouthfeel was mainly smooth, somewhat roasty and refined in the chocolate/maybe more or less sort of cocoa sort of way.
Overall, I really like this porter, so glad I finally got to try a Founders brew courtesy of a few peeps, but hey I'm not arguing as I have no idea if I'll ever get to try this again. So good and so would love to have again.
