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.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pour is utterly, completely black with a big, initially fizzy, settling, frothy, beige head. Mildly sweet aroma, some roasted malts, light chocolate, a hint of fruity hops. Low carbonation, lovely creamy and dry mouthfeel - impressive for the ABV. Flavour is elegant, lots of roasted malts, good malty dry- and bitterness balanced well by good sweet chocolate and well-used fruity hops. Light vinious even for its low ABV - perhaps that’s because there is so much malty taste to it? Very good.

One of my favorite porters, hands down. Wonderfully balanced between chocolate and coffee, with a great head as well that provides that beautiful foam you’ve come to love.

Bottle @ Kungfu Necktie. Pours a pitch black. Delicious roast and chocolate in the aroma and flavor. The mouthfeel is smooth and well made.

from erzbierschof.ch - dark black coloured with a little dark beige foam left; nice lacework; a solid roasted nose with notes of licorice, vanilla, coffee and pine needles; a good malt body, very tasty, some sweetness and a decent bitterness; long roasted aftertaste of chocolate, nut and licorice - beautiful

Lovely beer. Pitch black, tan head. Very roasted nose and the flavor follows suit--espresso, dark chocolate, caramel. A slightly sweet finish. Soft carbonation. Excellent.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 15, 2010
Bottled 355ml. Appearance: It pours a pitch black beer with a decent sized bubbly dark deep beige head. Good retention and average lacework. Aroma: licquorice allsorts, basil, ashes, fudge, vanilla and coffee showing up. Roasty and hoppy. Mint sneaking in. Rather inviting. Taste and palate: Full bodied with a good bitterness. Low carbonation. Faintly warming on the swallow. Impressive malt profile. Ashes are rather present. Chocolatey. Very dry finish which is reminiscent of eucalyptus, pine needles, strong coffee and basil. Overall impression: Full bodied; rather bitter for the style in my opinion and possesing strong flavors. A very powerful and quite pleasant porter.

Dfonorow (1676) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Pours black with an appropriately sized chocolate colored head. Very nice lacing and slight carbonation. The aroma is very strong: chocolate, roasted barley, and a little bit of coffee. Taste is the same as the aroma except not as strong on the coffee and heavier on the chocolate and roasted malts. I’m a huge fan of porters and stouts and this is one of the best ones I’ve ever had.

ContemplateBeer (1619) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Aroma of dark chocolate, fresh coffee and almonds. Appearance is black with tan head. Flavor matches the nose, but with some chicory flavors apparent as the beer warms. Smoked malt flavors in the finish. Palate is creamy and bubbly. Outstanding Porter.
