Not my favorite by Founders. Maybe I just prefer stouts to porters but this didnt go down as smooth as I liked and had very intense dark flavors. It was very strong and had a long finish.

Did a little side-by-side the other night with GL Ed Fitz, Odell Cutthroat, and Deschutes BB, all of which I always enjoy. But in comparison, Founders just killed it, to my surprise.
