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.

huineman (583) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 6, 2016
Pint on tap at Kloster, Madrid. Pours blackest pitch black, dark tan thick head. Aroma is mainly espresso coffee (would be nice to match them). Also hints of smoke, soil and pure cocoa. Silky and oily, rich and well-balanced. Long nice finish, with the right bitterness.

12 oz bottle: Dark brown color with a tan head. Dark chocolate powder aroma. Roasted hazelnut, lightly burnt caramel flavor. Pretty light body and a crisp carbonation, a little too crisp and light. Decent.

Drinking 355ml bottle on Kvittfjell in Norway. Dark almost black color with a light brown foam. Seems to be a bit of a metallic smell to it, but I find a lot of chocolate and nutty aromas as well. The roasted notes in the taste are pleasant and you got a very long aftertaste with a smooth bitterness. I also taste some cherry and dried fruits. I could imagine this beer will only improve if stored for a longer period of time.

RedSox2004 (1640) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Ink black with a frothy 2-finger head that dissipated slowly and left modest lace. Roasted coffee is strongest in the aroma, along with dark fruits like plums and raisins. Taste followed the smell, with the fruits coming in stronger than they were on the nose, with a slight hops bitterness that materializes late. Gentle smokiness throughout. Moderate carbonation, medium body and a pleasant warming alcohol presence.
