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.

Black, black, black with thin tan head. Roasty malts in the aroma. Rich and malty flavor followed by roasty and burnt notes. Very creamy and satisfying. Well balanced between roast and sweeter malts.

stretchfest (79) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a sexy thick black with moderate brown head. Dark chocolate, coffee, roasty chocolate malts dominate the nose. Taste starts sweet and finishes with a light coffee bitterness. Nice medium-heavy mouthfeel. Dark, rich, and sexy indeed.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2010
From bottle. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, light smoke, molasses, and licorice. Rich and roasty and sweet. Dark brown-black with thin tan head. Medium chewy body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with rich sweetness, roasted with light bitterness. Chocolate and molasses, carbonic tang with mild alcohol. Bittersweet chocolate finish, light smoke. Sweet after. A nice porter.

imaragingbull (570) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2010
Tap at bar Louie, Great lakes crossing mall. Pours deep black-brown with nice tan head. Aromas of light chocolate, mocha and hazelnuts. Medium to full bodied, hop flavours and bitterness though prevalent are overshadowed by the medium-full body of chocolate, caramel-burnt toffee and roasted malts. Medium carbonation, the finish of this beer showcases the continuation of the rich roasty malt flavours (increasingly, more burnt toffee) with some minor bitterness on the finish. A reflective, rich porter.

jkwood04 (3946) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2010
12oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours very dark brown with a thick, lingering, tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and some earthy/grass flavors for the hops. Flavor at first of roasted malts, followed by a long chocolate note and some smokiness/hops at the finish. Thick texture. An incredible porter.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Very dark and opaque. Rich, roasty aroma. Really good. Strong malty, roasty and hoppy flavors. An excellent porter.

RFWobbly (10) - Buford, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Lone bottle in a variety 6-pack received as a gift. Unknown age. Poured opaque black-brown into a wide-mouth glass with a 3/8 thick mocha-colored head that dissipated rapidly into dense lacing. Great aroma of roasted pumpernickel. After the huge aroma, surprisingly thin on the tongue. Medium body. After-taste of sharp, slightly acidic carbonation. No sense of alcohol. Label’s claim of "Dark, rich & sexy" was achieved. This would be a great beer to have with a hot pastrami sandwich or anything else on a dark rye bread. Very drinkable by its lonesome, probably even better with food. Very nice.

Oh yeah, this will do. A real nice Porter, nearly perfect, with a sexy lady on the label.

thefederalist (290) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, bread dough and pralines. The flavor is sweet and smooth with more chocolate, roasty and earthy flavors, smoke and dirt. Bitter finish. This makes the porters from a lot of other brewers look like clumsy imitations of what the style should be.

JulienHuxley (3054) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle thanks to Papat44. Beautiful dark pour with rich creamy moka head. Aroma is delighting, burnt toast with lots of chocolatey-vanilla sweetness and a bit of hops coming through all that as well. Taste started off pretty good, rich and sweet, but fell pretty short in a sort of light lactic sourness, possibly signs of it losing freshness. Palate is creamy, has light carbonation and suits me. I would love to try a very fresh bottle or a tap of this.
