I really liked this IPA although it's much smoother compared to regular IPAs I drink. Definitely sweet undertones; like coffee and chocolate but not overwhelming at all.
I'm a visual person too and I like the bottling, labeling, etc. However, I bought a single bottle and had no information on the beer at all. Usually like seeing some IBU info on the bottle.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours very dark brown (almost black) with a three-finger length tan head and plentiful visible bubbles along the side of the glass. I detect aromas of dark roasted malts with coffee and chocolate. The taste directly follows the nose. I pick up those dark roasted malt notes as well as the coffee and the chocolate. It's a bit on the watery side. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is smooth and the drinkability is good. This is a very good beer.

Deep brown, near black colour, one finger of tan head, good amount of lace on the glass. Smell has tons of roast and coffee, bittersweet chocolate, big healping of earthy hops as well. Taste is full on burnt coffee and roasted malt, chocolatey, fairly high bitterness both from hops and coffee, floral hop and toasted malts in the finish. Light-medium carbonation, light-medium body though thin at points. A good roasty porter with tons of coffee and chocolate but still this has nothing on the Founders Porter, that being said I would still gladly drink this again.

A - dark brown with a reddish hue; huge thick, dense, brown head; great retention

S - roasted malt primarily, faint bittersweet chocolate; all very faint

T - roasted malt, bitter, faint chocolate

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

Such a simple porter. It's basic and almost one-dimensional. It's not bad by any means but there isn't really anything of note here.
