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.

vadie (1184) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
Noir très, très sombre, avec un col moyen marron. L’arôme intense du malt torréfié, café et chocolat. En bouche c’est très onctueux, plein du corps et presque lourd, avec un tas du café et chocolat équilibré une bonne finale amer. Très intense, pas du tout facile à boire, mais c’est une bière pour savourer.

Had my eye on this one for awhile, why did i wait so long. So much better than the sampler fodder this is going on my favs list. Delivers as advertised. Rich, roasted, perfect for any occasion.

markas101 (2236) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2016 Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI via Babo. Dense black, cocoa and coffee aroma. Smooth, milky, nice hop kick that mingles with a burnt chocolate and resin flavour.

retinadoc (209) - - MAR 23, 2016
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 Bottle. Average carbonation. Sweet, balanced chocolate, coffee, caramel, and malt flavors; slightly burnt coffee flavor. Lingering malty finish. Hits all the right flavor notes, without being boozy or overwhelming in any one flavor note. Another perfect example of a porter that doesn’t have to have a high ABV to be potent and satisfying. Delicious!

Keg @ Victorian Craft Beer Café, Halifax. Black with a gritty, but crisp and light roasted malt aroma and taste, with it being slightly more pronounced in the former.
