Bottles on 05/08/14. Poured into a snifter.

A:4.75 - Beautiful beer! Pours VERY dark, you can't see any light through it. A dark tan, creamy head sits nicely on top, maybe about one finger. It leaves a little lacing.

S: 4.5 - A delicious smelling beer, it has a dark roasted malt scent backed up by some dark chocolate and hints of coffee.

T: 4.5 - The smell prepares you quite nicely for the taste. It's all there; the roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel. It's awesome.

M: 4.75 - Not too thin like some porters I have had. This seems like the perfect medium between a porter and a stout. There's a creaminess to it that you don't get with other porters, but not as "thick" as some of the stouts. Very smooth, very drinkable, very nice.

O: 4.62 - This is the best porter I've had to date. Thank god Founders distributes to Arkansas - they make some awesome stuff. Just as the label states, this is dark, rich and sexy. Very sexy. The Kate Upton of porters.

Nothing flashy about this one--just simply amazing. Roasty, pitch black, a little smoke and/or leather. Incredible mouthfeel. This is really a stout, IMO, but who cares?
