Mmmm. Pours from a bottle with minimal head. Smells like roast coffee, chocolate, and toffee. Great, chocolate, vanilla, roast taste. This is really good.

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.
