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.

12 oz bottle courtesy of manny57. Thanks. Pours a dark brown color with a medium l tan head that soon recedes leaving some minor lacing. The aroma is rich with chocolate, dark roasted malts and earth. The flavor is similar with multi-layered chocolates, black walnuts, and earthy hops. The palate is smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. The finish is long and dry. Overall: A very tasty brew, but its a crime to put it in such a small bottle.

On tap at local option : pour is a very dark brown with nice tan head. Nice retention and lacing here- light roast character in the aroma- mouthfeel is somewhere in the middle as expected. This beer is creamy and robust - fantastic marriage of chocolate malts and hops here. Best porter I’ve sampled thus far

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle. Black pour with a slight ruby shine, medium brown head. Aroma is very roasty and dry. Strong liquorice, chocolate and heavy-duty coffee are also apparent. There are also notes of rope and earth, as well as yeast. A very powerful aroma. Taste is equally powerful, but less complex. It has lots of roast and a large bitterness, but not a whole lot of other subtleties. It is well-hopped and actually quite fresh and sparkly on the palate. Very nice..

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle, beermerchants.com. Jet black with a deep tan head. Coffee and chocolate very prominent, whisky creeps in and the finish is long, lingering and blackcurrant makes an appearance, with hops becoming noticeable right at the end. A cracker.

klingea1 (28) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2010
On tap at Founders. Pours a rich black with a thin brown head. Coffee, toasted malt, and burnt sugar aromas give way to coffee and molasses flavors as the beer warms. Sits a bit heavy on the back of the tongue, but nice and creamy.

Draught at local option. Solid black with a big tan head. Sharp roasted aroma with Green bellpepper. Dry and well attenuated with the same sharp green pepper flavor. No detectable hops bnot anwhole lot of malt going on. Sharp phenolics. Not a fan.

Shared with Leafs93 for his 30th. Pours a dark black color with an off-white head. Has a roasty aroma with some hints of chocolate. Has a sweet roasty taste with some gentle bitters and a nice coffee spice. Mouthfeel is thin to medium. Great porter.
