A: Gorgeous dark reddish brown hue with a big head that dissipates to a 1/2 inch head; lacing is fantastic

S: Rich roasted malts and coffee and chocolate shining through especially; man, this smells roasty and malty and awesome with just a touch of hops underneath

T: Rich malts and roasty malts: coffee and chocolate but also some dark fruits flavors; this is so tasty and even a bit hoppy

F: So creamy...so creamy; and velvety and awesome

O: Man, this is a good porter...my new favorite; it is so malty and smooth and yet bitter and creamy and just plain delicious; glad to finally see Founders across the river in Iowa...mmm
