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.

On tap at local option : pour is a very dark brown with nice tan head. Nice retention and lacing here- light roast character in the aroma- mouthfeel is somewhere in the middle as expected. This beer is creamy and robust - fantastic marriage of chocolate malts and hops here. Best porter I’ve sampled thus far

Soft but rich porter. Aroma of bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Slightly dry finish.

Jaksmart (434) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle. Black pour with a slight ruby shine, medium brown head. Aroma is very roasty and dry. Strong liquorice, chocolate and heavy-duty coffee are also apparent. There are also notes of rope and earth, as well as yeast. A very powerful aroma. Taste is equally powerful, but less complex. It has lots of roast and a large bitterness, but not a whole lot of other subtleties. It is well-hopped and actually quite fresh and sparkly on the palate. Very nice..

RichardW (1541) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle, beermerchants.com. Jet black with a deep tan head. Coffee and chocolate very prominent, whisky creeps in and the finish is long, lingering and blackcurrant makes an appearance, with hops becoming noticeable right at the end. A cracker.

klingea1 (28) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2010
On tap at Founders. Pours a rich black with a thin brown head. Coffee, toasted malt, and burnt sugar aromas give way to coffee and molasses flavors as the beer warms. Sits a bit heavy on the back of the tongue, but nice and creamy.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Draught at local option. Solid black with a big tan head. Sharp roasted aroma with Green bellpepper. Dry and well attenuated with the same sharp green pepper flavor. No detectable hops bnot anwhole lot of malt going on. Sharp phenolics. Not a fan.

Chalsk (1068) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Shared with Leafs93 for his 30th. Pours a dark black color with an off-white head. Has a roasty aroma with some hints of chocolate. Has a sweet roasty taste with some gentle bitters and a nice coffee spice. Mouthfeel is thin to medium. Great porter.

Leafs93 (1726) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Pours black with small tan head. Aroma is roasty caramel, bread, dark chocolate and hint of coffee. Taste is sweet carmel with a sticky finish. Not to heavy and not to light, excellent.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 6, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2010 Bottle. Pours oh so dark with a creamy medium-sized tan head. Aroma and flavor are wonderfully complex: bitter and milk chocolate, a bit of coffee, some licorice, a touch of bitterness (mostly from the roast), some aromatic hops. Understated sweetness. Finishes dry. Creamy mouthfeel. One to savor.

Nephilium (1389) - Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Nice aroma of chocolate and roast. Pours an opaque black, with just a touch of light tan head. Nice rich roasted flavors start this off, with notes of chocolate and coffee. Long roasted finish with this one. This is quite a tasty porter, and one I’ll be picking up more of during this autumn.
