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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

Very dark brown and nearly opaque. Poured a thick brown head, the color of the foam on a cappuchino. Aroma was coffee and burnt toast. There was also something fruity, a dark fruit in the aroma but I couldn't put my finger on what exactly it was. The taste was sweet with malt up front giving way to a strong coffee bitterness that lingers for quite a while. I really liked this beer!

Poured a dark brown with a substatial tan head of foam.

Smell is sweet milk chocolate, Coffee, malt, vanilla. Very pleasant.

Taste, the chocolate is upfront but more subdued than on the smell. Well rounded across the entire pallet. Vanilla, oak, coffee.

Mouthfeelis substantial with a nice carbonation.

Overall a very nice porter. Balanced with subdued hops. Chocolate winds it's way through in just the right amount. Very tasty.
