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.

Deep brown with light, creamy, tan head. Smooth roasted coffee beans, sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruit. Flavor is roast crescendo with just a touch of sweetness. Finishes residual roast, coffee, unsweetened chocolate. Somewhat acidic. Very good, straight-forward porter with no surprises. Fairly complex profile. Would tend to lean towards Darkhorse’s Special Reserve Black.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark black pour with a huge amount of bubbly tan foam. Heavy chocolate and mild roast coffee in the aroma. Chocolate and a very mild roast begins the flavor and then intensifies. Smooth and roasty through the body and into the middle with a nice and bitter aftertaste. The heavy carbonation really enhances the body.

tkrjukoff (4213) - SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2011
Pours black as night with a huge fluffy longlived head leaving pretty lace. Aoma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, tar, fruits and fresh grass. Fullbodied mouthfeel. Flavor is fruity, tar, meaty, peaty, perry and very tart; excellent. Fullbodied tar palate. Dry tart longlived and well balanced finish. So enjoyable.

Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size diminishing creamy light-brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt and coffee along with light leafy hops and chocolate. Flavour, which is even better, of roasted malt, coffee, light hops, some light lactic notes and a good amount of chocolate and a nice dry, roasty bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. A great Porter, well done!

Tumman ruskea, lähes musta porter. Niukka, beige vaahto. Tuoksussa on suklaata, kahvia ja paahtunutta mallasta. Maussa on suklaata, kahvia, paahtuneisuutta ja tummaa, kuivaa hedelmäisyyttä. Keskirunsas ja hieman liukas olut. Portereiden kärkipäässä.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAR 2, 2011
Pours black with a slight nut brown hue in the edges with a nice light brown head. Aroma is full of well-rounded roast, liquorice, almost vanilla, doughy yeast notes, notes of coffee and slight vegetal. Taste has a lot of liquorice and still well-rounded roast. Cocoa, coffee, almonds and bready malts. Still a vegetal notes. Quite a large hop presence as well, bitter in the after taste. Carbonation is high, but it suites the beer well. A really good porter!
