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.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Draft. Pours a thickish dark brown with tan head and good lacing. Smell is roasted malts, dark chocolate and a tad roasted coffee. Taste is much the same as smell with some caramel like undertones and a nice bitter kick. Probably the best porter I’ve had to date.

TheHopster (1032) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2011 On draft at Cloverleaf during Founders takeover night. Burnt coffee and bittersweet chocolate flavors. So easy to drink with smooth oily palate. A rich and complex porter.

JAG55 (77) - O’Fallon, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2011
12 oz bottle poured in a dimpled mug: very complex aroma chocolate, coffee, toast, spruce, earthy, soy sauce, smoke: pitch black color, minimal head, brown foam; medium sweetness, salty, lightly bitter; full body, soft carbonation, oily feel, an abrupt burn then sweet burnt finish; great beer with meal and just finishing a long hard day.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle. Dark black pour, a little carbonation and chocolatey and slightly smoky aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet nutty chocolate, creamy and finished very mellow and earthy. Surprised I hadn’t rated this one until now.

QuezXLV (415) - Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2011
A lot of chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Nice combination of bitterness and full body. Very dar and incredible lacing. Kind of oily on the palate. As far as porters go, the taste is nutty and burnt and exctaly what I’d expect a porter to be.

Somewhat new to the craft beer scene. Been drinking and researching for about a year now and this the greatest porter I’ve ever had. Delicious.
