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.

Thanks to BVC for this bottle. Ebony body with a thin khaki head. Big roasted nose, dark chocolate, coffee, and a soft charred note. Coffee comes through more in the flavor, bitter bakers chocolate in the finish. Smooth body, fairly heavy weight to it. One of the best ports Iíve had in a long time, tastes really big for 6.5%. Thanks Brandon.

Thick black pour with a frothy, 2 finger, tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and licorice with notes of cocoa, and some spicy/peppery hops. Very chocolaty flavor some more notes of licorice, and a dry well hopped finish. Velvety full body.

From Mreusch, pours deep brown with a beautiful creamy and thick tan head. Nose is quality coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Same in the flavor with a dry, slight bitter finish. Lots of coffee in the finish.

Bottle and tap. Love the tap better. Poured oily black with a creamy brown head. Big aroma of chocolate with some coffee. Great mix of chocolate and coffee. More chocolaty. Very smooth.

kseecs16 (1209) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Chocolatey and roast character. Whispy off white head with a small amount of lacing. Flavor is quite dry and roasty with a sweet chocolatey body. Finishes with a nice mocha roast flavor with hints of char. Lingers with a semi sweet bitter dark chocolate flavor.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Iím not generally big on porter. Oh, do you see where this is going? Well, frankly put, this is the best porter Iíve had. Dry, bitter chocolate, good hop character. Rich, medium body, great mouth feel. Defining.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Brewed in the USA..... Pours black in color with a super small thin beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts and mild coffee. Taste is of chocolate, malts, coffee and a hint of hops. The mouthfeel is robust, with some lingering smokey notes. This is exactly what the commercial description said : Dark, Rich and Sexy. :)
