COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

355 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a beige, small, creamy head. Aroma of pleasant roasted malts and chocolate. Flavour of smooth chocolate malts with roastiness, mild hops and coffee. Medium bodied with a very rich and smooth mouthfeel. Dry and fruity finish. A very pleasant porter.

bottle. aromas of chocoalte marshmallows, coffee, and vanilla. taste follows, but with additions of chocolate malts, nutmeg, and burnt coffee. on the palate it is rich and creamy, followed by a smooth finish characteristic of a fine porter. this is spot on, and there is no question this is rated as high as it is. killer!

The Platonic Ideal of a porter (or as close as one can get). Pours a red-tinted dark-as-night Mahogany capped with a half-inch of latte-foam colored head. The bouquet is nearly a mirror-image of the taste to come: chocolate and coffee and roasted goodness. The head eventually subsides into a high-gravity Belgian lace. The liquor has a full and silky mouth feel, a bitter-sweet concentration of that bouquet that hit your nose after the pour. The malt is dark; the intensity is high and the finish is pleasingly long. What I like here additionally is the muscular hops hiding just behind the roasted malts. Some porters lack this balance; Founders does not. Lovely brew.

jlanning215 (363) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Dark pour with a tan head, quicky fading. A ton of rich and creamy coffee. Id say that the bottle says it all....dark, rich and sexy. Extremely smooth. Itís like drinking a dark chocolate shake with just the right amount of sugar to make it palatable. Rich barley malt and cocoa powder. A really fantastic beer.

Thatís a good porter. Itís not a stout - but itís not a dark colored brown ale. Itís a porter. Rich and complex. Roasty.... sure, roasty. Roasty, toasty, delicious the mosty - no need to boasty.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - FEB 3, 2011
Black body, dark brown huge creamy head. Malty, roasted and strong coffee aroma. Overwhelming syrupy full palate. Dark bitter chocolate, mousse and again very potent coffee flavour. Wow.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Black and thick pour with little head. who-boy, lovely aroma. Roasted malts, dark, ripe fruits, chocolate, molasses, earthy, milk, light vanilla. Medium, full body with nice tiny dancing carbonation. Flavor is packed full of those delicious roasted and chocolate malts, light burnt malt, a touch of molasses, and faint vanilla. Great porter. A real winner.
