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.

Black, tar like color. Rich, lightly burnt chocolaty aroma. Delicious rich flavor and mouthfeel resplendent with cocoa and vanilla. It may be the perfect porter.

12oz. Pour is pitch black with a dark brown creamy head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, and some caramel. Flavor is exploding with coffee, coco, roasted malts, and an amazing full finish. Holy hell, this is one great brew.

pineypower (2834) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours out black with a thin brown head. Aroma is light roasted malts, chocolate and a very slight bitterness. Flavor is very complex, a velvet-like mouthfeel with chocolate, roasted malts, slight coffee, nuts, earth and a slight lingering bitterness. Smooth as silk and very complex, once again Founders doesn’t disappoint.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2009
Bottle thanks to laguerita. Pours a pitch black with a ring of head. Brown around the edges. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate and a touch of floral hops. Taste is robust, bitter and roasty. A touch of acid and acridity. Mouthfeel is pretty nice and oily, like I’d expect from a porter. Very nice.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2009
Bottle courtesy of hellbilly. Thick black pour with a creamy, lacy brown head that lasts throughout. Aroma of dark chocolate, ripe fruit, deep roasted malt and a hint of hops. Great roasty flavor as well, with lots of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Thick and coating in the mouth. Seriously good brew. Thank you very much Joshua!

MrBunn (2609) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark and viscous brown with a small and dense head. Aromas are an interesting collage of chocolate malts, pears, a bit of damp earth and some dark fruits. Flavor is even better... a mix of chocolate, peat, nuts, leather and just a touch of vanilla/cream from time to time. Finish is a bit bitter and a bit burnt... almost an earthy peat end to things.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle thanks to thecheeseman, shared with angrypirate06 and ilovedarkbeer. Thick fudge pour with a creamy tan head and a dark brown body underneath. Aroma is nutty and fudgey with chocolate everywhere. Taste is roasty and nutty with hints of tobacco and ash. Creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation. Tons of flavor for a 6.5% porter.
