look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Purchased at one of the local cigar lounges.

A: Very dark brown. Almost black. Good head and retention.

S: Coffee, malt and chocolate. Very nice.

T: Same as the smell with the addition of hops. Outstanding.

M: Rich yet refreshing. Nice carbonation and bite.

O: This is good stuff. I love the hop notes in this. Uncharacteristic for a porter but so good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: Don't have the best lighting at the moment, but this pours black in the middle, with a very dark brown around the edges. Half a finger of head that dissipated very quickly.

S: A hint of milk/dark chocolate which almost gets completely overtaken by a very heavy roasted malt and oats smell.

T: Taste follws the smell very closely. Dominated by roasted grain, chocolate and what I think is a dark french pressed coffee sandwhiched between the roast on the front and the sweet from the chocolate on the end.

M: Very smooth, creamy mouthfeel start to finish and the chocolate is what lasts to create that creamy feeling.

O: By far one of the best porters I've ever had and since it's a year-round beer for Founders, I will definitely by it again on a regular basis.
