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.

Served in an imperial pint from a tap at 3 Floyds, there was not much of a head atop this deep brownish black brew. Whiffs of roasted coffee and chocolate invite a sip which confirms my nostrilsí findings. While the malts dominate, the hops keep it balanced and enjoyable.

Aroma is chocolate, a touch of smoke, dark malts, cocoa, and sugar. Appearance is rich mahogany with no real head to speak of. Taste is thin chocolate, some maltiness, sourness, and smoke (also umami). Finish is sweet and smooth. Very faint hop presence. Drinkable and true to style

Compliments of DuffmanSW also enjoyed with mspindler. Dark black with brown tasty head. Aroma of coffee and cinnamon. Taste is smokey, roasted coffee, dusty, sweet fruits. Medium body thatís very nice. Most porters I have had are usually really thin. Overall very good porter, one of the best Iíve had.

I had this at Bar Louie in Novi with BeerBaron617 the other night. It was from a pretty fresh keg, so it was especially tasty. I am slowly growing in to porters and stouts, and this one proves to make the grade for me at this time. A great black pour with a medium tan head that leaves quickly. Itís got a great aroma of chocolate and coffee, typical of porters, and the nose translated to the taste. Very great body/mouth feel, not too thick, not too thin, just right. Itís got a great flavor.

Had this at the Pinhook, Durham, NC. Very roasted taste and aroma. Flavour held many classic Porter elements in place and conducted itís execution on my tastebuds in style.

SHANER4 (483) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2009
bottle 12o oz. - Poured dark brown almost black with medium beige head that faded. Aroma - roasted chocolate malt, smokey and also mild coffee scent. Flavor - Roasted smokey coco taste. Some roasted almonds and coffee grounds! Palate - medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Finish is dry and has aftertaste!(ashy) Overall - OK Porter but not what I expected. Fullers London Porter is far superior!!

thirdeye11 (5746) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2009
(Draught at Chumleyís) pours jet black, oily and nice creamy tan bubbles stick around a long time; lacing is great too. Nose of roasted toffee, chocolate, coffee, and even a little fruity. Taste is super roasty, creamy enough to balance it out, bakers chocolate and a nice roasted coffee finish. So creamy and delicious this is one of the best porters Iíve had. Not too thick to even drink on a hot night.
