Briefly....

Looks the part tho the head fades quickly. Aromas are muted, but the taste is better. This sample highlighted roasts more than choc or coffee, and the roasts are bitter , almost burnt. Mouthfeel a little watery for ABV.

Well made beer obviously tho I am not sure if, given the fact that it is highly hopped, whether storage may be an issue. Little hop bitterness to this palate.

Poured bottle dated 10/4/13? into New Belguim globe.

A-Pours very dark black/brown with a small tan head. Head dissipate relativity quicky leaving spotty lacing.

S-Nose is dominated by chocolate and coffee but also has notes of vanilla and caramel.

T-Taste is great with sweet chocolate and roasted malts with a very balanced level of bitterness.

M-Mouthfeel is medium with soft carbonation and a great balanced finish very excellent.

O-Another great beer Founders. A must do porter!
