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.

Hollywoodt (240) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Pours a deep, dark brown with no real head to speak of, Aroma is of dark, roasted malts, a hint of coffee and chocolate. The flavor follows this with just a touch of a bitter finish. This is a very good brew, and almost stout-ish.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2010
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL. This really is the standard in which all non-imperial porters should be compared. A great nose with great balance. Rich and creamy smooth, yet superbly hopped. The pour was pretty as well. A big creamy, dark cream colored head, spotted lacing, a medium-thick appearance, and dark black-brown in color. The notes in aroma and flavor compliment each other almost perfectly. Rich cocoa, effervescent coffee, caramel malts, and backing earthy hop. Start to finish, this one is quite simple, though so well done.

dwm1034 (755) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle from Beer Bistro in Chicago. Pours a rich dark reddish brown; thin head...wonderful smooth taste...almost too smooth to be a porter. Sweet but not so much to distract. Definitely a wonderful example of how good a porter can be...almost enough to make you enjoy winter.

Vignale (3255) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2010
Det här är den perfekta portern. Kraftig, kärv, fyllig, fruktig, rund och len. Allt finns där som ska finnas. Fruktig choklad, mörk frukt, kaffe. Inte för mycket av något, inte så stark, och ganska snäll beska, men de andra smakerna är så stora att den inte saknas.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a beige/light brown head. The aroma is malt and notes of fruit. The flavor is close to the nose with some additional roasted notes. The palate is sweetness, roasted and with a high level of carbonation. Overall a really good beer.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Pitch black pour with a thin bubbly head. Good amount of lacing around the rim of the glass. Has a creamy coffee aroma, but comes out much more in the flavor. Also a good amount of dark chocolate in the flavor. Very well balanced and enjoyable.

acurtis (53) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Second beer in a mini Porter tasting: Founders Porter poured into english pint glass. Dark thick pour. Very dark brown head. Thicker, darker and smokier than the GLEFP. Sweet aroma of chocolate, coffee, dark malt, vanilla with some smoke. Smooth and creamy, taste of roasted malt, molasses, chocolate, coffee. Very different than GLEFP, not as drinkable but a more creamy full mouthfeel. Exceptional.
