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.

Bottle from a shop in Monterey, CA on Lighthouse Ave. My first impression was that this was a sweet porter. Flavor is definitely sweet. Aroma is sweet caramel and chocolate. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Beer does not have a roasted malt character that I have seen in most porters. All in all a very good beer. I am happy that Founders in finally distributing to California.

mrjez (193) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours very dark with a tan head, about a finger. Good lacing. The aroma is excellent. Roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee. A bit of sweetness in the flavour, honours the nose well. Goes down smoothly, not too heavy, has a lingering malty feel. A very solid porter, one I’d love to try again.

Zymurgeist2 (1427) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle to glass. Nose is heavy chocolate, caramel, molasses and sweet candy. Beautiful jet black with full brown head that lingers. Taste is layers of chocolate and complex malts, with slight caramel. Sweetness persists, and no roast. Moderate bittering. Mouthfeel is fantastic and coasts the tongue.

Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of coffee and touches of malt, yeast and hops. Bitter, roasty and hopy finish with estery hints. Very good.
