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.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2010
The pour is black with a quickly diminishing tan head. The aroma is dominated by a deep sense of chocolate and dark roast coffee beans. Th flavor is very robust with a significant amount of dark roast coffee and unsweetened cocoa. The finish is wonderful with a strong presence of coffee. Deep dark roast is easily thw most prominate flavors here. The mouthfeel is a little heavy and chewy. I’m a little surprised this is a porter and not a stout, even though there isn’t a definitive answer to the difference between the two.

BiddleBrau (1078) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Black, black, black with thin tan head. Roasty malts in the aroma. Rich and malty flavor followed by roasty and burnt notes. Very creamy and satisfying. Well balanced between roast and sweeter malts.

stretchfest (79) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a sexy thick black with moderate brown head. Dark chocolate, coffee, roasty chocolate malts dominate the nose. Taste starts sweet and finishes with a light coffee bitterness. Nice medium-heavy mouthfeel. Dark, rich, and sexy indeed.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2010
Tap at bar Louie, Great lakes crossing mall. Pours deep black-brown with nice tan head. Aromas of light chocolate, mocha and hazelnuts. Medium to full bodied, hop flavours and bitterness though prevalent are overshadowed by the medium-full body of chocolate, caramel-burnt toffee and roasted malts. Medium carbonation, the finish of this beer showcases the continuation of the rich roasty malt flavours (increasingly, more burnt toffee) with some minor bitterness on the finish. A reflective, rich porter.

jkwood04 (5058) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2010
12oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours very dark brown with a thick, lingering, tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and some earthy/grass flavors for the hops. Flavor at first of roasted malts, followed by a long chocolate note and some smokiness/hops at the finish. Thick texture. An incredible porter.

RFWobbly (10) - Buford, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Lone bottle in a variety 6-pack received as a gift. Unknown age. Poured opaque black-brown into a wide-mouth glass with a 3/8 thick mocha-colored head that dissipated rapidly into dense lacing. Great aroma of roasted pumpernickel. After the huge aroma, surprisingly thin on the tongue. Medium body. After-taste of sharp, slightly acidic carbonation. No sense of alcohol. Label’s claim of "Dark, rich & sexy" was achieved. This would be a great beer to have with a hot pastrami sandwich or anything else on a dark rye bread. Very drinkable by its lonesome, probably even better with food. Very nice.
