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 is just what I like; inky black and thereís not even color around the edges. Itís solid black with a thin head that doesnít last long. Inviting roasty smell. The roast carries on into the flavor, but it doesnít over power the smooth chocolate. The chocolate notes here are not as bitter as other porters. More of a milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Hops and toasted bread come out more as it warms. Long finish thatís dry with just a hint of bitterness. Nothing not to like about this one!

Extremely dark brown, almost black. Mouthfeel is very thick and creamy. Very full bodied. Taste is slightly chocolate, big roasted malt backbone, slightly sweet and balanced with a nice bitter finish. At 6.5% ABV you can have a few no problem. The aroma is full and rich. An amazing beer.

This beers smells of rich chocolate malts with a brush or smokiness. It lingers with a bit of hop bite at the end. It pours a jet black body with a bubblier head than expected which was brown in color. It tastes of milk chocolate and a bit of smoke with some lingering hop bitterness. This beer is very smooth almost like velvet and with an abv of 6.5% this beer could be a dangerous porter if too many are consumed, but damn delicious.

Could this be the perfect porter? Everything you want out of the style is here. A light roastyness and mild sweetness with notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and burnt malts. I love this beer and always like having some around.

Beautiful chocolate milk colored head. Aroma of lots of chocolate and a little coffee. Flavor echos the aroma. Itís well balanced with dry and slightly bitter finish. Yum!

Finally got around to picking some of these up. Bottle pours into a pint glass a rich black, with only the slightest hints of brown when held to the light. Half-inch light tan head. Nose is very chocolatey, with some coffee and dark bread. Taste is...wow. More chocolate and coffee, heavily roasted malts, oatmeal stout smoothness. I literally canít believe how good this is.
