Basically a perfect porter. Smells light and slightly chocolate. Smooth drink but heavy palate. If I could picture a perfect beer of this style this would be it

Pours dark brown. Roasted aroma is rich and full of chocolate. Taste is even more rich. Sweet not bitter. Roasted nut flavor as well. Very enjoyable!

Founders is one of the best breweries there is and this one lives up to their reputation. Roasted caramel, coffee notes finished with a light chocolatey sweetness at the end. Pours dark but drinks light.

Dependably good. Porters are not my fav, but this is okay. Pours like motor oil, but tastes much better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brownish black with a dark khaki head. Aromas of coffee, tobacco, some chocolate. Taste follows suit, roasty, coffee, unsmoked pipe tobacco. Finishes with a nice little hop bite that is oh so pleasing. Very good.

frpilz (111) - Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Light aroma of slightly roasted nuts and sweet toffee. Pours dark brown, thick no opacity to the color. Medium brown color head, smallish which didnt last. Low carbonation, medium mouthfeel which starts out light but fills up as the flavors and body envelope your mouth. Even flavor throughout, some alcholol warmth at the very end. more tha n you would think for only 6.5 abv. Smooooth , creamy, RICH ,and luscious..but not overly bold or too flavorful. More subtle ,maybe even underflavored compared to some Porters or Brown ales. Great malt tatste though, satisfying , and leaves you wanting more. Very little bitterness, leans towards sweetness, flavors of dark chocolate, raisins, dark cherry , plum, roasted walnuts. Excellent Porter !

I dont get a lot of smell off this one, but it sure is tasty as hell. Lots of coffee and roasted flavors make this a good one. No head to it at all.
