T - 4.25 - roasted coffee, espresso beans, chocolate
M - 4.0 - Medium-heavy, aftertaste is roasted coffee, alcohol is covered.
O - 4.0 - Good porter. I like the fact that it has a little bit more body and abv than a lot of porters.

Founders Porter
Founders Brewing Company, MI
---from bottle to stemmed porter/stout glass---

Appearance
Pours a dark mahogany brown but sits in the glass pitch black. Good tan head settles to a thin cap with good lacing.

Smell
Chocolate birthday cake. Caramel and licorice. Iced mocha. Slight grassy hop.

Taste
Sweet caramel malts, roasted coffee. Mocha. Finishes with bitter dark chocolate. Hops play an integral role in the background of this beer, though you may not notice right away.

Mouth-feel
Silky smooth. Perfect carbonation level. A little sticky from all the sweet. Dark chocolate lingers…

Overall
Very creamy/silky. This is the first Porter I have agreed with. Not overly burnt. Very well balanced. Gets better as it warms up – contemplating putting this baby in the microwave… kidding… kinda…
