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.

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 (7069) - 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 bodyís medium, the carbonation active on the tongue. The beerís 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.

Beautiful beer. Full and strong yet still nuanced. Chocolate and roasted flavor permeates.

rjplumer (1007) - 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 Iíve had. Feels thinner than other porters Iíve had. Refreshing and easy to drink.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Thick black dark tan head, bitter chocolate and licorice aroma. Dark roasted malts, pine hops, and dark chocolate on the palate. More pine cone hop finish. Not as thick as the aroma would indicate but still very rich and tasty.

caesar (6678) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2011
Bottled. Opens with a huge shh, which is quite unusual for american brews. Black color, huge rocky brownish head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, slight caramelly, licorice. Slight sweet taste, medium bitter. Slight sticky palate. Bit overcarbonated, which doesnít always seem to be the case. I should try it again.

glennmastrange (2680) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of dark bread, toasted and dark bitter chocolate, light to moderate resin for the hops and earth for the yeast, with notes of charcoal, milk and tobacco. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, light brown with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic, and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation and finishes a little chalky and slightly dry and sticky. Deep, rich and full of flavors and aromas, this is a Porter perfect for winter evenings sipping.

dresden (1475) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 15, 2011
12oz bottle from pushkinwow (wow!) Pours a pure black, with a small bit of head. Lots of roasty aroma. Coffee, caramel, and bitter chocolate. Oily and bitter. This is terrific. I donít drink a lot of porter, but if I could get this. I would.

williamherbert (1508) - Syracuse, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2012 Cigarette ashes. Opaque pitch black/brown; cardboard brown head, slushy, minimal lace. Slick oily feel, ashy feel. Caramel and toffee malt. Sweeter than expected. Dusty in the nose; beautifully balanced between the chalky nuttiness and a sweet caramel balance.
