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 Founders’ robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It’s a lover, not a fighter.

This lovely lady pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Malty. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, bit of smoke, prunes and caramel. Medium to full bodied. Smooth and perfectly balanced with rich malty flavours. Nice medium-long coffee-like aftertaste.

Unde (669) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Dark brown colour with beige head leaving lots of lacing to the sides of the glass. Aroma has dark chocolate, milk coffee and roasted malts. Taste is sweet, dark chocolate dominates and some roasted and coffee flavours come in the end. Oily texture and lowish carbonation.

Great porter on tap. Nice mouthful dark with a shallow white head. Best porter I have had in a while. Better than some stouts I have had.

mariuspoenari (422) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2016
35 cl bottle. Pours a very dark ruby with a light espresso head. Smells like smoke, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Bitter-sweet taste, lots of dark chocolate, roasted grains, a bit of lactose. Very well balanced, not too sweet, not too bitter, not too sharp. Smooth mouthfeel and a nice aftertaste.

firemarshal (198) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle. Black. Nose of cane sugar, toffee, cashews. Sweet creamy taste. The hops are present in a fantastic design. Great porter to have in a cold night. I'd rather have a breakfast stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fine porter though I think I am drinking it at the wrong temperature. I will allow my next bottle to warm a bit. It is a hearty glass of brew with beautiful color and nice lacing.
