If you like porters and stouts, then you are going to like this. It is everything you want out of a dark beer.

Love Founders Beer!

Bottle Pour:
A - Pours opaque black, with a nice two finger milk chocolate colored head. Head thins out but lingers throughout drink.
S - Dark chocolate and roast coffee notes come forth.
T - Sweet chocolate and malty. Coffee and a slight bitterness on the back end. Nicely balanced between malt and hop character.
F - Nice bit of carbonation, smooth, creamy, medium bodied porter
O - Pretty solid porter. Makes great for the cold weather nights

This is the Patrick Roy of porters, the porter which with all others must now be compared. Founders substantiates the state of Michigan in the brewing community. If the sitcom Fargo could be enhanced by a beer, it is this beer. I would rather have one six pack of Founders Porter per week for the rest of my life than world peace, the ability to fly, or Scarlett Johansson.
