Okay, okay, pretty nice brew here. Iíll always pick up a brew that is brewed with coffee! Quite roasty! High acidity due to the addition of coffee. Probably a little too bitter with a bit too much ash on the end. ABV well hidden. Nice to try, not sure about re-buy.

Can from a quad purchased at Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Dark brown pour with a huge tan head. Aroma of malt, cocoa, cola and some coffee. Malty and chocolatey flavor with slight alcohol before a bitter, roasty coffee finish.

This tastes a lot like Breakfast Stout(that's a good thing). This has a little less depth/flavor; plus it's about $3 more per 4 than the Founders. Really impressed though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The appearance is dark, dark brown with light brown head that leaves thick sheets of lace that look like icing. The smell is like smelling a Russell Stover sampler box. That big rush of chocolate and other sweet flavors you get when you take the lid off of one of those boxes? Thatís this. The flavor is just outstanding. Coffee and chocolate and root beer and a big malt, plus hops and some heat from the 10% ABV. This is probably going to become my favorite porter. Iíll buy the hell out of this whenever I can find it.

can, from Van Loans, Kingston NY. Good aroma, sweet, roasty. Coffee, chocolate. Dark brown color, good initial head, faded kind of quick, spotty lace. sweet flavor. full body, oily creamy mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish, Pretty good, aroma got better as it warmed, good flavor, but I think the 10% shows itself, itís hot. still darn tasty in the scheme of things. good pick up by my wife.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to Dmac. Pours an attractive dark brown color with a 2-finger off white head. Aroma is of light cocoa powder, some mild-,medium roast coffee. Taste is chocolate, light coffee, roasty malts, a little punch of hop bitterness with a slight tell to the otherwise rather well hidden 10% abv.
