appearance: "Silky Black" according to the Founders site, but through light it seems a very deep red. Pretty brew in any case. Slight tan head, little lacing.
smell: That burnt porter edge but balanced with caramel sweetness.
taste: As the nose portends. burnt but balanced well.
overall: This may go in regular rotation.
