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.

Capa (2316) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Black and thick pour with little head. who-boy, lovely aroma. Roasted malts, dark, ripe fruits, chocolate, molasses, earthy, milk, light vanilla. Medium, full body with nice tiny dancing carbonation. Flavor is packed full of those delicious roasted and chocolate malts, light burnt malt, a touch of molasses, and faint vanilla. Great porter. A real winner.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2011 355ml. Lumpy, 100% pitch with an uneven, shrinking manila head haloed with white- an odd effect I’ve never seen before. Aromas lush, raisiny high cocoa chocolate melted on burnt toast, blackcurrant, blueberry; some strawberry and vanilla tones peeping through the blackness. Huge, mouth-filing palate like a rich chocolate mousse; flavour all about luxuriously bitter, high cocoa chocolate but with a lovely, softening streak of blackcurrant and plum running under it. Still-smoking charcoal, lemon dabbed sparingly on barely edible, burnt (English) pancakes. Deep, inky, highly drinkable stuff with a fullness and pungency leaning towards the imperial even at 6.5%. Impressive.

Human eyes were not meant to penetrate the stygian blackness of this eldrich concoction. If not attenuated by a pale corpselike head of pillowy foam, that abysmal darkness would drive mortal man mad. Complex congeries of roasted coffee, caramel, and chocolate conspire to bewitch the mind. Just a touch bitter on the finish.

Bottle from beermerchants.com A black coloured pour with a small beige head. Pleasing roasty, coffee aroma. Tastes of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark fruit, very rich. A top quality porter from one of my favourite breweries.

Just as described on the label: dark, rich, and yes, sexy. This porter has nice roast, chocolate, and coffee.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Dark appearance with a medium head. Flavor changes as the beer warms. It initially has coffee, alcohol, cherry, and dark chocolates which then change to a milder chocolate. Very smooth.

Bottle 355 ml from www.erzbierschof.ch. Deep brown to black, brown foam, unctuous. Scent and taste of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee marc, dark fruits. Top of the range with hints of mocha, toffy, raisin, perhaps Xeres. Quite of chocolate sweetness and its bitterness, creamy and rich.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and roasty malts. Initial taste has some bitterness. Lots of chocolate flavors come out. The sweetness of the malts is well balanced as a bitter hop flavor is also noticeable throughout. The body is full. The beer is very drinkable with only 6.5% ABV but no sacrifice in flavor.
