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.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2009
Bottle courtesy of hellbilly. Thick black pour with a creamy, lacy brown head that lasts throughout. Aroma of dark chocolate, ripe fruit, deep roasted malt and a hint of hops. Great roasty flavor as well, with lots of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Thick and coating in the mouth. Seriously good brew. Thank you very much Joshua!

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark and viscous brown with a small and dense head. Aromas are an interesting collage of chocolate malts, pears, a bit of damp earth and some dark fruits. Flavor is even better... a mix of chocolate, peat, nuts, leather and just a touch of vanilla/cream from time to time. Finish is a bit bitter and a bit burnt... almost an earthy peat end to things.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle thanks to thecheeseman, shared with angrypirate06 and ilovedarkbeer. Thick fudge pour with a creamy tan head and a dark brown body underneath. Aroma is nutty and fudgey with chocolate everywhere. Taste is roasty and nutty with hints of tobacco and ash. Creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation. Tons of flavor for a 6.5% porter.

JPorterman (2) - Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2009 does not count
Nice full rich aroma with beautiful tan head. Almost too pretty to drink (got over that quick enough). Rich flavor w/ hints of chocolate & coffee. Well balanced. An excellent example of a porter. Rivals English brews. Seems like a little bit of England is located in Michigan. Break out a nice chunk of Stilton with this one!

GT2 (8161) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 27, 2009
355 mL. Pours almost pitch black with a thick, almost three-finger, dark tan head. Completely ridiculous lacing. Beautiful aroma of milk chocolate, espresso, vanilla, roasted malt, and black pepper. Taste is ultra smooth- just awesome. Lots of espresso, semisweet chocolate, and vanilla ice cream. Alcohol is beautifully hidden. No cardboard dryness in the finish- just chocolate and coffee. This is my perfect porter.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Pours thick black with creamy brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt- simply, but nearly perfect. Flavor contain rich roasty coffee notes and some deep chocolate, also has a bit of vanilla mellowness. Rich full body with no stickiness. Amazing porter.

robinvboyer (2984) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2009
pour opaque BLACK. Wow, does this look thick, looks like an impy stout! Big aroma of coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, lots of roasted malts. Mouthfeel is chewy, and quite a bit thicker than i expected. Lots of roasted malt in the flavored tailed by lots of coffee, and cocoa. Mild bitterness in the finish, with a touch of hops. Wow, in a blind tasting i think you would be hard pressed to guess this was a porter. But damn itís delicious.

Thanks to BVC for this bottle. Ebony body with a thin khaki head. Big roasted nose, dark chocolate, coffee, and a soft charred note. Coffee comes through more in the flavor, bitter bakers chocolate in the finish. Smooth body, fairly heavy weight to it. One of the best ports Iíve had in a long time, tastes really big for 6.5%. Thanks Brandon.
