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.

Jonb5 (491) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Quarter of a litre at Celle Bierfest. Almost jet black, opaque, extreme tanned head.Lots of lacing, clung to the glass. S: More hops than other porters but not overly pronounced, gave way to a some fruits. T: High on sweetness and molasses, dwarfed the dark chocolate and espresso, finished like a Belgian dubbel. M: Thick texture, really smooth, silk in a glass. O: Good desert beer, really slid down well.

A macchiato with one sugar. Silky smooth & luscious - full of darkness but perfectly balanced. A good all round porter. Rated by BrewTom

venom666 (791) - Elche, SPAIN - APR 30, 2016
Pours a pitch black color with medium tan colored head. Roasty aroma, coffee, dark fruits, molasses, with cocoa and also a vinous character. Taste follows the aroma, very roasty, with molasses, toffee, coffee, chocolate, licorice and slightly vanilla, with a hoppy and bitter finish to it.

Fruit notes in the aroma that transfers in the body. Coca malt balances the robust profile.

Purthegorpthy (2) - White Plains, USA - APR 23, 2016 does not count
Pours head-high with minimal lacing after; appears rich and shutter-dark, with plum highlights when held against the sunlight. Smells like alcohol-infused pumpernickel bread with a tinge of citrus. The taste is sweeter than it is bitter due to the preponderance of roasted malt, but the hop presence here is a little stronger than a traditional porterís. Mouthfeel is chewy and thick, and the aftertaste of black coffee (or 80% dark chocolate, if you prefer) lingers. Very drinkable even for people who donít like bitterness because the malt defines the direction and the result is more like a chunk of slightly sweetened dark chocolate than a handful of mountain ash berries or a stringent aperitif.

Biroholik (726) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 21, 2016
To jest to co Tygryski lubią najbardziej. Pachnie niesamowicie. W nos uderzają nuty czekolady, kawy z mlekiem, ciesteczek ala Pieguski, kakao. Okraszone jest to umiarkowaną, nienachalną palonością. Aromat jest głęboki i cholernie przyjemny. Piwo nalewa się z ogromną, kremową, puszystą pianą. Otacza ona bardzo szeroko ścianki szkła pozostawiając na nich masę pajęczynek. Bardzo długo utrzymuje się na powierzchni. Kolor nieprzejrzyście czarny. Na podniebieniu wyczuwalne nuty gorzkiej czekolady, kakao i kawy. Akcenty palone zaczynają wydobywac się z oddal i coraz mocniej zaznaczać swoją obecność. Piwo początkowo wydaje się dość wytrawne. Po kilku łykach można się przyzwyczaić do tego smaku i wyłapać trochę słodyczy. Piwo nie jest aż tak gęste jak bym tego oczekiwał, aczkolwiek wodnistym też bym go nie nazwał. Pijalność dość wysoka, jednak daleka od sesyjności. Dobre piwo z małym minusem.

josanguapo (942) - SPAIN - APR 21, 2016
At Gourmet Experience, after lunch with Pedro & David. In wine cup. Enjoyable but too much expensive for what it is (4.5?) Watery texture body but with a good hops background that compensates it

Nonshaugen (376) - Fetsund, NORWAY - APR 20, 2016
355 ml bottle. Jet black, thin tan/mocca head. Aroma is beautiful, dark bitter chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts, tar and pipe tobacco. Mouthfeel is rich, bitter and creamy with a long aftertaste. Flavours reflects the aromas, and reinforce them further. Fantastic beer.

dnicolaescu (1685) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 19, 2016
BOTTLE 12 OZ. Pitch black, medium beige head. The aroma does not knock one down, yet it is subtle and fine - sweet hot chocolate, light roast and hoppy spice. The taste is lightly sweet, well balanced between sweet chocolate, light roast and a moderate spicy bitter finish. A subtle and well-crafted beer.

Pershing (514) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Dark brown almost black with a tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma of caramel and toffee with roasted malts. Medium body with lots of bitterness from the black malts. Silky mouth feel with lots of malt. Filling finish. An excellent everyday porter for the working masses.
