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.

12 oz bottle. About time I got to this one. Pours like ebony, perfectly dark with a large soft tan head that laces all the way down the glass. Aroma is of fresh roasted coffee and cocoa powder, like walking into a coffee shop. Tastes strongly of bittersweet chocolate, sweetness of the malt comes through first with some spiciness, but is nicely offset by the hop bitterness, very well balanced. Finishes sweet, with a a little more bitterness on the tongue (like chewing a mint leaf). A wonderful porter.

Poured out the bottle with a deep, dark molasses body with a deep caramel, tan head that did not dissipate. Sweet malty aroma and very roasty flavor with chocolate and roasted coffee bean overtones. A very warm mouthfeel with a dry aftertaste isn’t overwhelming on the palate. A good, hardy beer.

Pours black with a medium mocha head which settles quickly. Subdued aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Taste is burnt roasted dark chocolate, black coffee, tiny hint of hops, burnt malt bitterness in the finish. Decent porter. Still like Edmund Fitz Great Lakes better.

Black hole pour with medium head of deep tan, frothy head. Aroma is strong with roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is on par with aroma plus 90% cocoa chocolate swirling around in the midst. Potent porter.

Bottle. Pours motoroil black with about the same viscosity. Small creamy light brown head. Flavor is lots of coffee and dark chocolate. This beer is pretty close to a meal in liquid form.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Pours a viscous black, not much foam. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, maybe a hint of licorice. Creamy mouthfeel. Taste is a nice roasty coffee flavor, lots of dark chocolate. Fantastic.

bookman10 (621) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Pours a thick, almost oily black with little to no head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, roasted nuts. Complex blend of flavors with a smooth finish. An excellent beer all around.,

Another excellent beer from Founders. Great Porter with strong hops, rich, and smooth. Not too heavy, but what you expect from a proper porter.
