UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Tremendous porter on draft. Nice deep/dark flavors of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Really smooth and easy drinking. One of the better porters that I’ve had. Great by the bottle but even better on draft.

Pours jet black like motor oil with tan head. Cocoa and mocha aromas. Poured into turonis pint glass. Chocolate y taste. Not much carbonation. Velvety finish. A gem of a porter. Founders delivers again

Poors jet black oily and slightly thick, thin tan head that seems to disappear and cling to the edges of the glass. Syrupy, chocolate and smooth. Very low carbonation was a suprise with this one. Was like a black chocolate milk shake with hints of beer. Great wee desert beer.

Bottle from Beautiful Beers (online). Dark, dark brown with a slight purplish hue. Small tan head. Scent of dark chocolate, coffee, Marmite. The taste is ambrosial: a bittersweet chocolate overload with the slightest sour tinge. A surprising bitter hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, with the perfect amount of carbonation on the lips and gums. Warming, and tastes a lot stronger than it is. Incredible.

Draft and bottle. For a porter strong from a style point of view. Pours and looks great in the glass. Smells of chocolate, malt and biscuit. Not bitter at all and has a sweetness. I love this summer or winter.

Poured from bottle into can-shaoed Pabst glass because I like being silly. Pours dark brown with thin tan/ brown head. Scent is not that strong to me, maybe I’m doing something wrong. Taste is heavy on the chocolate in the front then residually bitter and still roasty in the back. Excellent, delicious beer for a "regular" bottle.
