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.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size diminishing creamy light-brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt and coffee along with light leafy hops and chocolate. Flavour, which is even better, of roasted malt, coffee, light hops, some light lactic notes and a good amount of chocolate and a nice dry, roasty bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. A great Porter, well done!

BeerBaboon (1719) - FINLAND - MAR 5, 2011
Tumman ruskea, lähes musta porter. Niukka, beige vaahto. Tuoksussa on suklaata, kahvia ja paahtunutta mallasta. Maussa on suklaata, kahvia, paahtuneisuutta ja tummaa, kuivaa hedelmäisyyttä. Keskirunsas ja hieman liukas olut. Portereiden kärkipäässä.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAR 2, 2011
Pours black with a slight nut brown hue in the edges with a nice light brown head. Aroma is full of well-rounded roast, liquorice, almost vanilla, doughy yeast notes, notes of coffee and slight vegetal. Taste has a lot of liquorice and still well-rounded roast. Cocoa, coffee, almonds and bready malts. Still a vegetal notes. Quite a large hop presence as well, bitter in the after taste. Carbonation is high, but it suites the beer well. A really good porter!

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2011
Bottle. The Rover, Göteborg. Black colour with a beige head. Malty, roasted, chocolate and licorice aroma. Flavor of roasted malt, licorice, coffee and a light fruitiness. Strong carbonation and a bit too light body that lowers the score for this beer. Maybe this bottle was slightly off?

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Pours pitch black and completely opaque without even the slightest hint of lighter color when held to a light and a one finger beige head that quickly fades into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind. Nice roasted malt aroma with hints of bittersweet dark chocolate, oatmeal, toffee and roasted coffee/espresso bean. Smokey but not acrid or burnt smelling with subtle lactic/cream and even some hazelnut. Beautiful roasted coffee in the nose that isn’t overly powerful, burnt or stale. Smells great! Chewy medium body with lots of roasted malt, slight hops, sweet chocolate and a lingering dry finish. Deep roasted coffee/espresso bean flavor along with hints of chocolate, toffee and oatmeal. A bit more acrid/burnt tasting than the aroma suggested with bittersweet dark chocolate, toffee, oatmeal and nut. Subtle bitter dry hops toward the end of the palate with a dry finish. A bit too roasted for my preference with bitterness lingering throughout but still pretty drinkable with a nice lactic creamy flavor mid-palate that gives balance and adds to the mouthfeel. It could use a bit of sweetness to round things out but overall this is a very good representation of the style.
