A: Dark as normal Founders Porter

S: Very smokey and dark

T: Smokiness is pretty well done, I could still taste the base Porter in the background.

M: Nice and full

O: This was definitely a good porter to drink BUT I have high expectations when coming from Founders. I would drink this again if I could find it but I wouldn't sell my first born for it.

Poured a black body with some tan head and minor lace that dies quick. Aroma is mostly smoked and roasted malts, not quite meaty type smokiness but strong and there are some subtle notes of coffee, dark fruit and bitter chocolate. Beer is heavy but smooth and retains its dry, smoky edge throughout. Balance and additional flavors are brought in from some coffee, chocolate and boozy taste sensations. This sweetness seems to hit on backend as the beer finishes dry and sweet at same time.
