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.

Very dark brown almost black. Very little carbonation what little there was was medium brown bubbles. Oily feel but also creamy. For the strength it has a lot of flavor. As stout as porters get before crossing into being a Stout. Well done. Serving: Bottle

Tremendous porter on draft. Nice deep/dark flavors of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Really smooth and easy drinking. One of the better porters that I’ve had. Great by the bottle but even better on draft.

Pours jet black like motor oil with tan head. Cocoa and mocha aromas. Poured into turonis pint glass. Chocolate y taste. Not much carbonation. Velvety finish. A gem of a porter. Founders delivers again

Rangi (549) - NEW ZEALAND - JUL 8, 2014
Poors jet black oily and slightly thick, thin tan head that seems to disappear and cling to the edges of the glass. Syrupy, chocolate and smooth. Very low carbonation was a suprise with this one. Was like a black chocolate milk shake with hints of beer. Great wee desert beer.

jjsint (624) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle from Beautiful Beers (online). Dark, dark brown with a slight purplish hue. Small tan head. Scent of dark chocolate, coffee, Marmite. The taste is ambrosial: a bittersweet chocolate overload with the slightest sour tinge. A surprising bitter hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, with the perfect amount of carbonation on the lips and gums. Warming, and tastes a lot stronger than it is. Incredible.

kbudd19 (513) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle Smooth velvety black pour with a small finger of chocolate coloured head, looks like a thick imperial stout. Aroma is, lots of roast, chocolate, coffee, some nuttiness, and a bit of anise. Taste is, smooth roast up front, followed by some chocolate, coffee, velvety mouth feel, with a mild bitter finish, and a coffee roast aftertaste

Draft and bottle. For a porter strong from a style point of view. Pours and looks great in the glass. Smells of chocolate, malt and biscuit. Not bitter at all and has a sweetness. I love this summer or winter.
