Jet black with very little tan head. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee aromas. Bitter coffee and roasted malt flavors dominate. Some very slight hops are present as well. Moderate carbonation.

Great porter from Founders. Fantastic balance between malts and roasted flavors with a smooth body that makes this brew surprisingly crisp.
