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.

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 isnít 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.

bottle from Ýlbutikken very dark brown, settles black, smooth light brown head. aroma of roasted malts, flowery and faint sourish hops, aroma is not *that* strong, i have to struggle a bit to descipher the nuances. flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, dry mild hoppy balance. quite fresh. palate is very smooth. aftertaste is sweet yet a little dry. It tastes a bit like those stouts that contain oatmeal, sweet and smooth. Also reminds me of the milky sweetness iíve seen in some milk stouts. Very easy to drink, goes down like chocolate milk.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 Pours black with a brown head. The Aroma is roasted with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some liquorice and light smoke. Taste has the same notes and add some more hoppy notes in the end. Balanced!

Bottle at Bar&Cigar. Dark black with a full brown head, really good looking! Heavenly aroma of sweet malt, chocolate, vanilla, Fruity taste with licorice and more chocolate. Kind of roasty as well, and good bitterness. I find the overall feel a bit íthiní, but itís a great beer, as expected from Founders!

johnnnniee (2730) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Pours a really dark brown almost black color with a creamy mocha head that sticks around for a while. Smells of chocolate, roast, a touch of alcohol. Smells almost like a stout. Taste is creamy roasty chocolate. Has a touch of hops and alcohol burn in the finish but leaves you salivating for more of its roasty goodness. Very Creamy mouthfeel, crisp carbonation, thick body. Great brew! Could be a stout could be a porter, frankly I donít care Iíve just got to get me some more. One of the best porters ever.

Hansen (7328) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2011
Black. Has a light brown head, mostly lasting. Sweet aroma, notes of coffee, dark chocolate and laqurice. But not much though. Flavor starts heavy sweet, lots of notes, laqurice, faint notes of blood, iron. Dry texture, syrupy too, soft carbonation.
