Every since I tried Founders I’ve been a fan. This Porter is no different. At 6.5% ABV it”s not too strong but it’s higher than the average beer people drink. So onto the review!
The pour is dark, like a good porter should be, hell damned near solid black with a slight light brown head. The head does settle a bit after the pour.
The aroma is very pleasant. A nice mix of roasted coffee, milk, dark chocolate and a bit of fruit. A very pleasant smell, not too much different from other porters.
The taste is my favorite part of this beer. Its a great mix of coffee, chocolate and a bit of vanilla, which was not something I smelled originally. There was also a just a hint of cherry. It was a rather smooth taste with good mouth feel.
Overall this became one of my favorite porters, and that’s a bold statement since I generally only drink stouts and porters. So not only do I recommend it, but I give it 4.5 out of 5 kegs.
