Overall one of the better porters out there but I am just not the biggest fan of the style. Certainly not a knock against Founders as the beer is still very enjoyable. The mouthfeel is just a little to thin and carbonated and overall its a little "roasty" for me. Still nice to drink on a cold snowy night!

Bottle poured into nonic. Finger of tan head settles to a cap on top of near black opaque liquid. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, mocha, burnt toast. Taste is all kinds of roasty/burnt malt bitterness, a little cocoa sweetness, a touch of late hoppy bitterness and maybe some veggies and dark fruit sweetness. On the low end of full bodied, slick and creamy texture, low carbonation, abrupt bitter finish.
