4.5/5 rDev +5.9%
330ml bottle served in snifter glass.
A: Pours a deep brown color forming a small beige to brown head. Low retention and only few small spotty lacings left in the glass. A thin layer remains for long time on the top
S: Chocolate, roasted malts and oak. Quite biscuity, it reminds Oreo biscuits. Some earthy yeasts and some notes of flowery hops
T: Slight sweet upfront. Strong notes of dark chocolate, chocolate malts, brown sugar and wood. Reminds Oreo biscuits in taste too :). Nice roast bitterness in the end. Nice bittersweet balance
M: Medium, creamy and very smooth body. Medium carbonation. Biscuity and roasted aftertaste
O: Excellent drinkability. Perfect Porter. My 8th Founders. Always excellent quality beer

4.23/5 rDev -0.5%
Picked up a single in late September from the Downtown Wine & Gourmet while visiting Harrisonburg VA for $1.79. bottled i believe on 06/24/13 though it was not a clean bottle date.
Beer poured black with a nice brown head that is leaving lacing behind.
Nose is roasted malts and cocoa.
Taste is chocolate, roasted malts with a nice amount of hopping to balance this to near perfection. Finish has a nice dry hopping.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.
Overall this is a very tasty brew. Again would love to try this when it is fresh. Definitely a world class porter!

This was a great porter. Founders doesn't disappoint with this one. Nice head and lace on the glass, deep black color, looks great. The nose and taste mimic each other well, burnt espresso beans and chocolate, with some nice hop character as well. The maltiness is more dominant than the hops but they do their work to give some cleanliness to the middle character. A little fruity and bready towards the end, just really good all around. Thick body, not too strong on the carbonation. Delicious.

From the 12 oz bottle to a snifter.
A: deep dark brown/black with a thin one finger root beer colored head. The head dissipates quickly leaving little in the way of lacing or cap.
S: coffee, espresso, roast malts
T: coffee, roasted malts, some cocoa as well.
M: medium to full feel, good carbonation and smooth.
O: I have to say that I really enjoyed this beer. It is easy to drink and very flavorful. I would put it right up there with Breakfast Stout as one of my favorites from Founders.
