COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders’ robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It’s a lover, not a fighter.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Stuff is great, just great...has a lot of mouthfeel for a regular strength porter and a lot of coffee. Pours dark, slow and smooth, lots of hop and coffee in the hose and through the palate. Full and satisfying finish.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle sampled at Sorbon, Bromma, Sweden. Pours out in dark brown appearance with a rich sticky tan-coloured head. Rich harmonious aroma of roasted malts, luxury chocolate, coffee beans, mild sweet licorice, roasted nuts and spicy hops. Medium-bodied with strong yet elegant notes of mocha, roasted malts, coffee, milky chocolate with undertone of nuts and mild resin. Long balanced finish of bittersweet chocolate, well-roasted coffee, nuts and mild anise. Top notch porter, this.

Bottle at Beer Temple. Nice dark brown body with mocha head. Nose is lots of chocolate and coffee. Quite roasty and inviting. Taste is also of malts, chocolate, dark fruits. Very roasty and most enjoyable. Hats off.

Mora2000 (5834) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Thanks to RBlaszak for sending this beer as an extra. This had been on my wants for a long time. The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is milk chocolate, coffee and some roasted malt. The chocolate is dominant. The flavor is heavy on the roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate. The malt is very heavily roasted and has some burnt qualities to it. Creamy, medium to thick mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation. An excellent porter. One of the best that I have had.

larsga (6284) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2010
Big dark brown head. Opaque black body. Roasty chocolatey dusty aroma with alcoholic nutty notes. Dry-sweet roasty chocolate and citrus taste with burnt wooden notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, dusty mouthfeel. Dry roasty chocolate and burnt grain aftertaste with coffee and roasted rice notes. Nice, complex, full of flavour, and highly drinkable. (0.355l bottle, Håndverkerstuene, Oslo.)

Near black with a light brown head. Malty, chocolate aromas. The flavors were very even, bitterness lighter than expected. No unexpected aftertaste, stays the same throughout. Medium body.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Somehow I had missed this one up to now but now I have tried it both on tap and in bottle. Both are similar which is good because this is a great beer. Dark almost black. Roasted malts in both aroma and taste. Balanced with a bit of hops and sweetness. Full flavored but not a thick mouthful.
