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.

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.

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.

Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Black pour with a beige head. Good earthy nose. Plenty of chocolate and caramel to keep you occupied. Chocolate, roasted malts and coffee flavours with a slightly nutty taste. Classic porter flavours. Good stuff.

StefanSD (2215) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 1, 2010
12 oz bottle courtesy of manny57. Thanks. Pours a dark brown color with a medium l tan head that soon recedes leaving some minor lacing. The aroma is rich with chocolate, dark roasted malts and earth. The flavor is similar with multi-layered chocolates, black walnuts, and earthy hops. The palate is smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. The finish is long and dry. Overall: A very tasty brew, but its a crime to put it in such a small bottle.

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
