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 Founders’ robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It’s a lover, not a fighter.

Dark solid pour. Very balanced between the chocolate and coffees. If you have never had a Porter or you really like Porters than this is a winner. Just an all around good beer. Will continue to drink it.

DiarmaidBHK (4025) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Definite chocolate and coffee notes on the nose. Pours black with almost no head. Very thick mouthfeel. The taste has a bunch of different things going on none of which I can identify but they cOmbine to make a big beer that lingers for entire senatorial terms.

arkurzynski (2119) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2011
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.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2011
(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 (4273) - 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.

blankboy (7058) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
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!
