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.

bubbleflubber (1873) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Black pour into the glass with a tan head that leaves wispy lacing. The nose is of dark bark chocolates, very nice. Flavors are of bakers and semi-sweet dark chocolate, roasted caramel malt, dark fruity esters, and it finishes with a toasted grain balance, with a nod to cocoa. The silky mouthfeel and smooth quaff make for a super delicious, velvety porter to enjoy anytime, as an aperitif, an complement to an after-dinner dessert, or simply a great nightcap. Very well put-together; extremely flavorful and enjoyable. Prost!

Listigovers (382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Pure black with a smaller than expected dark brown head. Tons of roasted malt and chocolate on the nose. Delicious dry black chocolate rounded off with an acidic hop finish. Tons of flavour in this one, full bodied. Amazing, right what I need after my flight.

Motobashi (100) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Poured very dark with no real head. Just a thin tan layer. Nice lacing though. Light, active carbonation. Nice, strong caramel aroma. Strong, oakey flavour. Moderate bitterness. On the heavy side for a Porter. Close to a stout. NIce.

Silvan7 (772) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle @ home. Birra marrone, velata, con schiuma beige molto fine ed abbastanza persistente. Aroma intenso di frutta secca (nocciola) cioccolato fondente, caffè e tostatura. erbaceo ed etereo da alcool sono a loro volta presenti. Gusto abboccato, quasi amabile nei primi secondi, con frutta secca ( quasi arachide) e cioccolato, poi un leggero amaro si presenta (sia da tostatura che da luppolatura). Gusto molto persistente. Corposa, di consistenza quasi appiccicosa, piena e rotonda. Abbastanza calda, è di grande equilibrio ed armonica.

Just nothing very special about it. For the price point, I was expecting to be swept off my feet. There are plenty of less expensive porters that are every bit as good. Also not as much head as I'd prefer.

guzzler67 (1532) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Totally dark with a small, olive brown head and decent lacing. Rich aroma brings together roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel and dark fruit. Woodsy flavor with hints of caramel, coffee, tobacco and black licorice. Semi-sweet chocolate shines in the aftertaste. Full bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a long lasting finish.

Dark dark. No transparency at all. Full and rich aroma. Grand Rapids masters composed this porter anthem. Divine!
