3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Roasty aroma, but not so strong. Good harmony of chocolate and caramel though. Well-balanced throughout and pretty dry. I would prefer it with a hint of sweetness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On Tap at Melt Easton. Founders Porter is a deep inky black opaque brew with a fine head of tiny mocha bubbles. Nose is darkly roasted malt, smoke and a little dark chocolate. Taste is very similar. Rich, roasted malt, toasted cereals, coffee and again smoke. The body is medium to full. A very impressive porter.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown body that holds up a creamy, thick, long lasting tan head.
The aroma has cocoa powder, roast malt and a bit of coffee.
The flavor starts with a touch of bitter roast malt, then the sweet malts provide support with chocolate and the coffee.
Very solid Porter.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours nearly black with a light brown, medium-sized head. The aroma offers roasty dark maltiness and some solid plummy fruitiness with caramel and rye pudding – sweeter and fruitier than many other porters. Taste is light to medium sweet, roasty and robustly malty. Chocolate and coffee combine with dark fruity flavours. Sweetness is excellently kept in check despite low hop levels; the aftertaste is already quite dry, even slightly bitter. Velvety smooth, creamy, medium to full bodied palate, quite silky to drink. Rich flavours perfectly in balance – classic porter.
