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.

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!

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 (7351) - 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.

Bottle pours deep brown/black with a beige head. Aroma smells of chocolate, coffee, and burnt marshmallow. Flavor shows the same with an additional hint of vanilla and fudge. Overall body is moderate to full, and finishes with dark chocolate bitterness.

Big and dark brown, with a milk chocolate head, this thing checks in a little heavier than most, at 6.5 percent ABV. Thereís a full rounded mouthfeel and excellent head retention, indicating a nice protein body, with a generous and completely balanced hop finish. Although not as well known as many of their offerings, this is an above average porter, an excellent winter warmer, and one well worth seeking out. Serving type: bottle

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Poured like a glass of texas tea, with a diminishing beige head. Appealing snout with dark fruit, coffee, dark chocolate burnt toast and malts protruding. Thickish mouthfeel. Flavour was roasted malt laden with yet more dark choc and coffee and a hint of molasses. Some well placed hoppage gave good balance to proceedings. Extremely well proportioned. A quality porter to bring up my 1200th rate.
