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.

_angst_ (4499) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2012
355 ml bottle bought @ Ölbutikken. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a small creamy mocha head. That leaves some trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly sweet, malty and full-bodied with roasted malts and lots of quality chocolate in it. Taste is very malty, slightly sweet and slightly bitter with roasted malts and tons of quality chocolate and coffee. Finish is slightly sweet and bitter with roasted malts and coffee. Very impressive and full-bodied for a regular porter. could drink a lot of this...

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is deep roast, liquorice, chocolate, molasses and more. Flavour is deep roasty malt which hands out a long lingering bitterness followed by sidenotes like chocolate, liquorice, etc.. Very nice.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 Aroma is coffee, dark roasted malts and a hint of hops. The flavor is coffee, a pretty good amount of cocoa in the middle and a decent hoppiness in finish. In all areas, this was a great porter.

Pours a rich brown color with a almond color head. Rich toasty flavors with some bright hops light roasted coffee. Feels warm. One of the better porters I’ve had.

MAFountain (19) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2012
12oz bottle to a Duvel tulip. This is my favorite porter to date. The aroma is roasted malts, and a hint of cocoa. Appearance dark black, thin mocha head, and decent lacing. Taste is roasted malts, with chocolate, and coffee notes. The palate for this is medium-bodied, with a dry finish. Overall it’s an exceptional porter. I would call it my go to porter if it was available here. Quality.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2012
12oz bottle. One of my favorite porters. Pours a nice dark brown/black hue, off white head, decent carbonation. Aromas are quite delicate, cocoa, malty, but not overly sweet. Smells more robust than the abv might be letting on. Palate is quite smooth up front to mid a dusty cocoa and light coffee. Coffee moves a bit stronger to the mid to finish with a slight bitterness. Really decent straight froward porter, and for its accessibilty, one of the better on the market.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2012
12oz bottle pours pitch black with a slight reddish brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, chcoclate and carmel malts, a bit of bread and very slight roasted coffee. Flavor is mildly bitter slight chocolate nib up front and a bit of roasted malts and slight vanilla to balance. Body is suprisingly smooth and finish lingers a bit

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2012
2012-01-22. Black body, small tan head. 3+ Aroma of lightly tangy dark malt typical of many porters, malty core, light roast. Flavour has rich dark malt core, modest roast highlights, fruity sort of tangy porter character. Muted chocolate undertones. 7+ Average plus to medium bodied palate. Simple and straightforward but quite a tasty porter. Bottle 8 months old, via trade with sprinkle
