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 Foundersí robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. Itís a lover, not a fighter.

Bottled@The 2nd ES/CS Beer Tasting. (thanks J.S.!). Quite much black colour with a small beigeish brown head. Aroma is ashes, liquorice, some mild roasted malts as well as mild notes of tobacco. Flavour is ashes, roasted mats, some chocolate and coffee along with mild liquorice and quite bitter finish.

EdKing (2265) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2011
Pours black with a chocolate brown thin head, which completely dissipates. Nose is lovely syrupy dark chocolate. Some mineral notes in there as well. Taste is silky chocolate, black coffee, some mineral notes to balance the sweetness, which is on the bitter side of sweet. Also some subtle flavours like tobacco. Brilliant stuff. Could drink this anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

Pour is black as you would expect with nearly no light tan head. Nose is of very milky chocolate and light coffee notes. Taste is the same, very very smooth. Great mouthfeel for the style.

Hermod (5151) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle from Bierkompass. Poured black color with a creamy brown head. Awesome chocolate malt and milk coffee aroma. Flavor is pretty much the same, sweet chocolate and roasted malt, just the right amount. Weak hoppy notes. Some tar/smoke in the dry finish. Flawless porter.

Pours dark brown with notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Coffee shows with deep and roasted grains. You also get a nice fluid creaminess with a light milk chocolate ending. WOW!

Iím not sure what caused it, but Iím madly in love with Founderís Porter. I believe this beer to be the worlds best, honest Porter, my ultimate go-to bottle. Bittersweet and rich yet light on the palate, this brew drinks frighteningly easy, disappearing from the glass too quickly for rational thought to hold out much longer. Java-encrusted roasted malts are followed by a hoppy bite that leads to a dry, dark chocolate fade. Whenever I get the inevitable "Whatís your favorite beer" question, this sixer provides a quick-n-easy answer. (2/17/09) NOTE: No more Founders in SC. Thanks to the brewery for giving our state a shot. Maybe next time things will go better on our end.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2011
12 oz bottle from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington DC, served in a tulip. Pours deep black with a small tan head. The head fades slowly to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of lace.The nose has big chocolate and roasty notes, along with earth, smoke, and a hint of barnyard. The flavour is dry and roasty, with plenty of coffee, smoke and herbal hops. The finish is long, dry and roasty. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, an excellent porter with a dry, roasty character and a nice earthy, herbal hop profile. I wish I had another bottle. 2011-05-15

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2011 Porter with notes of espresso and dark coffee or cacao beans. Quite a nice beer, although not as much depth as I was anticipating.
