So Raul brought himself back a cornucopia of East Coast/Mid West goodies/shelf beers and Founders Porter it is gonna be on this one.

Blacker than my baby mama soul, and even a little tastier at that. I mean, Raul ain't tripping like that one time that he finally got to the center of the tootsie pop, but it's good enough. Raulsky done drank this damn thang at room texture to make sure that he got all of the textures, aromas and flavors - and it was par for the course.

A little lighter than Raul would have liked, but it's definitely a sinkable putt.

Poured from a 12ounce bottle into pint glass. Opaque black body with about half inch of coffee cream colored head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Thick mouthfeel which reminds me of an Imperial stout. Very slight alcohol bite. The flavors starts of dark chocolate and black coffee . Hints of licorice and more chocolate as it finishes semi dry on the palate. This beer represents an exceptional porter. Please let this warmup to about 50 degrees or so as the chocolate flavors become even more pronounced. A real decadent treat.
