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.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is Roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate and coffee notes. Finish had some disconcerting mineral undertones. Nevertheless, it’s still a good porter.

szeli (260) - GERMANY - JUL 4, 2016
Ein gutes, aber nicht besonders Porter. Leichte Süße, erdig, leichte Hopfenbittere. Insgesamt etwas enttäuscht.

Gespuccian (129) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Aroma is heavy on chocolate and sweet malt and dark roast. Pours a dark stout-like black, with khaki head. Taste has some chocolate sweetness, decent bitterness. Full palate, creamy, effervescent, with a slightly bitter and crisp finish. This is what other porters wish they could be. Defines the style.

jampura (95) - FINLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Mmmmmmm.. täyteläinen, kuiva ja kantava portteri. Taattua Founders laatua. Kivasti salmiakkinen.

Alphadelic (2164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2016
This one has a great body and slick chocolatey flavor but it does suffer from some metallic, copper overtones that don’t give it the robust flavor I look for in a porter. The carbonation is somewhat lacking too.
