Founders "Porter"
Founders Brewing Company - Grand Rapids, Michigan USA
Porter (ABV 6.5%)

[Best served in a Nonic Pint glass]

Rating: 3.9/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a pitch black with a slight ruby hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) medium brown creamy head that totally lasted throughout and produced excellent streaks of lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted chocolate malts and a mildly sweet leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, a bit of caramel and a touch of dark fruit.

The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of chocolate and some dark fruit in the beginning and finished a nice bitter sweet with a healthy dose of coffee and a mild caramel sweetness at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time proceeding the swallow, with a mild bitter sweet coffee taste that was left to linger.

Mouthfeel was just about full in body and absolutely creamy in texture with a soft carbonation.

Overall an outstanding Porter. Not to surprising though, seems everything this brewer puts out is just incredible.
