Black bodied and beige head. Chocolate, cereal, roasted and milk malt base with American moderate hop balance. Doughy milky yeast. Medium body, light roasted taste with again a milky feel, yet not necessarily oily or thick. Good amount of flavour. Nice brew, very high quality and tasty too. (33cl bottle from Beer City)

Not a big fan of this one. Southern Tier has much better offerings. It’s go a nice dark appearance in the glass. Smells of nuts, toast, earthy, chocolate, coffee. Taste of some coffee and chocolate with a smokiness in there. No bitterness. Not something I’d try again, but it was good to test this at least.

bottled - Not all that good. I had Founders Porter right before this and that was much better. Not as much chocolate or coffee notes as you would expect.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours a deep dark mocha with creamy tan head and good lacing. Toasty coffee and bitter chocolate aroma. Body is medium. Bitter coffee and chocolate flavor does not linger, only hangs around on the tongue for maybe a second.

First smell has a strong scent of roasted beans. First taste has a bit sweetness, roasted chocolate and some hints of red fruits. Remarkably well balanced. Recommended.
