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. Pitch black pour with razor thin head but a little cling to the glass. Nose is not very strong but ample in roasted malts, coffee and a touch of vanilla. Taste is basically roasted malts and coffee. Very well balanced and none if that metallic taste I find in many porters. Fairly light on the palate for a porter. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2012
(Bottle) Pours black with a creamy light brown head. The aroma is very chocolaty with undertones of blackberries, blueberry jam, subtle dark fruits, asphalt and mild coffee roast. Wow – the malt profile is just fantastic. Perfectly balanced aroma-hops on the nose. A light milkiness also present. The flavour is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter. A light acidic sting is notable just as the beer hits the tongue. Lots of smooth roast and creamy chocolate. Nice hoppy finish with some roast. The mouthfeel is velvety and round with a light to medium carbonation. Medium bitter ending. Fantastic malt profile in the flavour as well. Medium bodied.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Draught. Pours black with a tan head. Smells of roasted coffee malt. Tastes a strong bitter, smoky, roasted malt, a slow hint of chocolate to sweeten it slightly. Very smooth and creamy. Finishes a bit dry and bitter. An ideal classic porter.

jackl (6814) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with a tiny tan head. The nose is filled with roasted malts, bitter chocolate, smoke, espresso. The taste is balanced between sweet chocolate notes and bitter roasted flavors. Some smoke. The hops show in the slightly bitter finish. The finish is a bit wet. The body’s medium, the carbonation active on the tongue. The beer’s a bit too acidic/astringent. the texture is oily. Overall, a very good, flavorful porter, acidic finish considered.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Dark brown pour with barely any head. Wonderful aroma of dark roasted malts, with chocolate, coffee, and a bit of leather. Taste is rich and roasty, slightly dry, with a bittersweet chocolate finish. Really opens up as it warms. Palate is quite robust and fantastically easy to drink. One of the great porters.

rjplumer (974) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Chocolate aroma with a hint of dark fruit. Deep dark brown a tan subdued head. Mild bitter start , then sour which then surprisingly finishes clean. I can feel lots of carbonation on my tongue which is unlike most Porters I’ve had. Feels thinner than other porters I’ve had. Refreshing and easy to drink.
