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 Foundersí robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. Itís a lover, not a fighter.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Inky dark brew with tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, some cocoa. Taste is coffee and sweet malts at the start, with a bit of cocoa and cofee in the finish. A little dryness in the finish. Very nice and very good.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 Aroma is coffee, dark roasted malts and a hint of hops. The flavor is coffee, a pretty good amount of cocoa in the middle and a decent hoppiness in finish. In all areas, this was a great porter.

12oz bottle to a Duvel tulip. This is my favorite porter to date. The aroma is roasted malts, and a hint of cocoa. Appearance dark black, thin mocha head, and decent lacing. Taste is roasted malts, with chocolate, and coffee notes. The palate for this is medium-bodied, with a dry finish. Overall itís an exceptional porter. I would call it my go to porter if it was available here. Quality.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2012
12oz bottle. One of my favorite porters. Pours a nice dark brown/black hue, off white head, decent carbonation. Aromas are quite delicate, cocoa, malty, but not overly sweet. Smells more robust than the abv might be letting on. Palate is quite smooth up front to mid a dusty cocoa and light coffee. Coffee moves a bit stronger to the mid to finish with a slight bitterness. Really decent straight froward porter, and for its accessibilty, one of the better on the market.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2012
12oz bottle pours pitch black with a slight reddish brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, chcoclate and carmel malts, a bit of bread and very slight roasted coffee. Flavor is mildly bitter slight chocolate nib up front and a bit of roasted malts and slight vanilla to balance. Body is suprisingly smooth and finish lingers a bit

jercraigs (9537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2012
2012-01-22. Black body, small tan head. 3+ Aroma of lightly tangy dark malt typical of many porters, malty core, light roast. Flavour has rich dark malt core, modest roast highlights, fruity sort of tangy porter character. Muted chocolate undertones. 7+ Average plus to medium bodied palate. Simple and straightforward but quite a tasty porter. Bottle 8 months old, via trade with sprinkle

Bottle- Pours a virtual black color with a off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with coffee and a hint of caramel. Taste of roasted malt and coffee with some bittersweet chocolate. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Good porter, nice example of the style.

Looks like fresh motor oil in the glass, with little head. And gives a spirited tumble down the throat. I could drink this regularly.

I donít know how this one fell through the cracks until now. Bottle. Black with a thick creamy tan head. Milk chocolate aroma and taste with some subtle citrus notes and tastes of roasted grain and drip coffee on the back end. Silky slightly bright palate makes this an enjoyable beer to drink.
