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.

Bottle. Black/brown with a small brown head. Aroma was mainly chocolate and coffee. Flavor was chocolate, coffee, something metallic, with a slight bitter roasted malt finish. Moderate body with a slight carbonated tingle.

brigg (561) - Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2010
(bottle) Opaque brown body, and big, thick dark brown head. Aroma is strong with chocolate and coffee, dark fruit, roasted malt, and underlying hops. Medium bodied. Sweet, and somewhat acidic with a coffee and roasted malt flavor, and a dry, grassy hop finish. Very smooth and balanced.

Poured a dark, oily black with a thin brown lacy head. Strong taste, but in a good way. Not as bitter as I thought it was going to be, and has pretty strong coffee and chocolate flavors. Good, complex palate with a good aftertaste.

one of the last at the tasting.. Pours a basic dark brown .. satisfying foam .. . good roast level .. . a touch thin, but makes it very drinkable .. a good brew but for founders? .. .

Hey! Now Ken, we all know that the moon is not made of green cheese.

Yes, that’s true Harry.

But what if it were made of barbeque spare ribs, would you eat it then?

Tremendous taste of coca, burnt oak, and a non-bitter, utterly smooth roasted coffee. Nice alcohol and grassy hop kick on the finish. Best porter I’ve tasted.

We are lucky craft brewers still put so much effort into a "normal" beer style. Pours a dark espresso black with a thin head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma of toast malt and dark chocolate. Phenomenal body with a smooth dark chocolate, even a whiff of burnt chocolate. Thank you for a great porter.

aroma is mostly wet roast, perhaps a hint of pumpernickel. body is dead opaque with wispy film head and touches of lacing. flavor is giant juicy chocolate. tiny hint of sweetness comes late but overall sweet and none my dismay. java is completely absent but chocolate is more then worthwhile.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2010
Rich black color with a mocha head. Rich chocolate aromas, earthy hops, roasty, dark malt. Flavor is coffee and coco, subdued bitterness, piquant and metallic. Silky and soft on the tongue, enveloping and extremely drinkable. This is a sultry, dark brew.

Growler fill from New Beer. Pours essentially black, slightly thin, with moderate cappuccino head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla bean, and currants. The vanilla is sharp and layers on top of the dark coffee aroma. Flavor is of wet coffee grounds, roasted malt, and a touch of smoke. The wet coffee grounds just keep coming. Earthy undertones that lead to a bitter coffee and nutty finish. Moderate to thin body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. This gets me more excited than ever to try the breakfast stouts from Founders.
