Bottled 4.25.14. Drank 10.17.14. Poured into a 16oz Shaker.

A: Hell yes, this beauty pours a rich opaque ebony with faint glimpses of ruby around the curvature of the glass, while forming a deep mocha head so pillowy I just want to take a nap in it. Two fingers, recedes slowly, and leaves smooth lacing all over the place.

S: I'd like to meet the man at Founders who when formulating this porter spoke up and said "what if we hop it?", because that man is a goddamn genius and should be recognized for his contribution to mankind. Molasses, caramel, bready malt, bitter bakers chocolate, smokey...all that usually good porter business, but wait! HOPS! Incredibly unique, incredibly delightful.

T: Dark roasted goodness. Heavy on the coffee...black, molasses, chocolate, and those goddamn hops.

M: Light creamy body, just the right amount of carbonation, no trace of alcohol, no lingering bitterness...despite the 45IBU, finishes with a little stickiness and a pleasant lingering roast.

O: In a category all its own.
