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.

12oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours very dark brown with a thick, lingering, tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and some earthy/grass flavors for the hops. Flavor at first of roasted malts, followed by a long chocolate note and some smokiness/hops at the finish. Thick texture. An incredible porter.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Very dark and opaque. Rich, roasty aroma. Really good. Strong malty, roasty and hoppy flavors. An excellent porter.

Lone bottle in a variety 6-pack received as a gift. Unknown age. Poured opaque black-brown into a wide-mouth glass with a 3/8 thick mocha-colored head that dissipated rapidly into dense lacing. Great aroma of roasted pumpernickel. After the huge aroma, surprisingly thin on the tongue. Medium body. After-taste of sharp, slightly acidic carbonation. No sense of alcohol. Label’s claim of "Dark, rich & sexy" was achieved. This would be a great beer to have with a hot pastrami sandwich or anything else on a dark rye bread. Very drinkable by its lonesome, probably even better with food. Very nice.

Oh yeah, this will do. A real nice Porter, nearly perfect, with a sexy lady on the label.

thefederalist (294) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, bread dough and pralines. The flavor is sweet and smooth with more chocolate, roasty and earthy flavors, smoke and dirt. Bitter finish. This makes the porters from a lot of other brewers look like clumsy imitations of what the style should be.

JulienHuxley (3362) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle thanks to Papat44. Beautiful dark pour with rich creamy moka head. Aroma is delighting, burnt toast with lots of chocolatey-vanilla sweetness and a bit of hops coming through all that as well. Taste started off pretty good, rich and sweet, but fell pretty short in a sort of light lactic sourness, possibly signs of it losing freshness. Palate is creamy, has light carbonation and suits me. I would love to try a very fresh bottle or a tap of this.

One of the better porters I have had. Smooth and not too overbearing. Try it if you can find it.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle, poured into my brandy snifter. Pours jet black with a stunning dark brown head. I wish it would have retained better, faded quickly. Aroma was of lots of roasty chocolate malts, actual chocolate and some coffee. The aroma was almost warming. First sip unveils some excellent roast flavors. Big chocolate, drinks super smooth. Nice creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Finishes dry with little bitterness, extremely smooth. I could drink this all day.

Ungstrup (29699) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2010
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt with an edge of burnt malt combined with light notes of soy sauce. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and roasted malt as well as lighter notes of soy sauce and wood. The alcohol leaves a slight burn in the mouth.
