Bottle from a shop in Monterey, CA on Lighthouse Ave. My first impression was that this was a sweet porter. Flavor is definitely sweet. Aroma is sweet caramel and chocolate. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Beer does not have a roasted malt character that I have seen in most porters. All in all a very good beer. I am happy that Founders in finally distributing to California.

Pours very dark with a tan head, about a finger. Good lacing. The aroma is excellent. Roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee. A bit of sweetness in the flavour, honours the nose well. Goes down smoothly, not too heavy, has a lingering malty feel. A very solid porter, one I’d love to try again.

Bottle to glass. Nose is heavy chocolate, caramel, molasses and sweet candy. Beautiful jet black with full brown head that lingers. Taste is layers of chocolate and complex malts, with slight caramel. Sweetness persists, and no roast. Moderate bittering. Mouthfeel is fantastic and coasts the tongue.

Draught @ Capital Alehouse Downtown, Richmond, VA. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small light tan head. Clear aroma of roast, with notes of malt and coffee and touches of yeast. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of coffee and touches of malt, yeast and hops. Bitter, roasty and hopy finish with estery hints. Very good.
