4.73/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5
Appearance - Deep, dark, almost black in color. Rich mahogany that only lingers around the edges.
Smell - Light vanilla and extremely dominant caramel smell on the background.
Taste - I get vanilla, with more caramel as it warms with the coffee becoming pronounced and strong at the end of my sip.
Mouthfeel - Pretty light in carbonation which suits this beer well. The velvet/viscous texture of porters is there is and it is outstanding.
Overall - Despite me not giving a 5 besides this category, the sum of all parts is indeed the best of all worlds as Leibniz would say. This beer is great and has a lot going on with it. I am really loving the style and I find it to be slightly lighter in body than Founders Breakfast Stout.

This poured the color of midnight at a bottom of a well, with an espresso-crema cap of foam.
The aroma held layers of dark chocolate and roasted coffee, roasted malts, a hint of vanilla. It’s a sipper, with a smoothly warming flavor of a sweetly bitter espresso with cacao and vanilla, and just a touch of booziness at the end. This is a big beer but so enjoyable!
