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.

Porters are not usually my thing, but this is simply a delicious example of the style. Love the chocolate notes and it just slips down so easily. Best black beer I’ve had.

Bottle pours coffee-black with a lush tan, persistent head. Bittersweet chocolate and chicory nose, creamy, full-body palate with fresh carbonation from start to finish. Overall, excellent balance, not cloying at all, an outstanding job.

Pours as black as the night with a dark brown, medium sized, bubbly head. Smells of sweet milk chocolate, toffee and leafy hops. Bakers chocolate and earthy cocoa nibs add to the well pronounced milk chocolate quality, with a flowery hint being able to cut through. Has a lower carbonation and a pleasantly creamy, medium body, which screams chocolate all the way. Its finish though reveals a pungent dry and earthy crushed coffee bean appearance, which works incredibly well as an antagonist to the the initial chocolate sweetness. Tastes of creamy milk chocolate from the get go, together with some dusty earth and a metallic hint, resulting from the initially noteable carbonation. Adds a toffee hint, as well as powdery bakers chocolate, remaining pleasantly balanced on the tongue, due to its gentle creaminess. Then there is suddenly absolutely nothing going on, but a totally calm ending which does not even turn watery, just producing a subtle dry hint. This is the part I love most about this beer. Its coffee finish, which picks up on all the prominent chocolate flavors, while adding the most creamy and dry long lasting aftertaste you can imagine. It truly takes it time to become recognizable, but once its there, it completely redefines the beer. In a good way. Man this is lovely, what an overlooked gem on my end with so many hyped beers getting released on a daily basis nowadays. This features actually everything which made me interested in craft beer years ago. It is way different than your industrial brewed Lager, well balanced and features an enigmatic thumbprint. It remains easy drinkable throughout, while providing such a satisfying depth, with a world class twist between chocolate and coffee.

Bottle from Stone shared. Lots of deep, rich cacao notes on the nose, some dark fruit as it warms. More cacao and fruit on the palate with some light vanilla undertones. Rich and decadent, but very nice.

Great Beer. Rich, decadent, at only 6.5% drinks much bigger. Nice velvety body. Would drink this by the pint on tap - in a UK pint I think...

Flaska från Alko, Åbo, Finland. Förutom lite kolabruna inslag så är det en näst intill kolsvart vätska, med högt gräddbrunt skum. Fina portertoner i doften med rostade inslag i förgrunden som drar åt pumpernickel, kaffe, choklad, lakrtis, grädde och lätt nötiga drag. Mellanstor kropp, något lenare. Smakmässigt drar den åt det något kärvare hållet. De rostade och nästan lite brända tonerna ligger i förgrunden här med, än mer än i doften. Pumpernickel, tjära, kaffe, choklad, kola och grädde. Stor, snygg och sammanhållen smakmässigt, från början till slut. Växer till sig i munnen och eftersmaken går över i en ännu kärvare kaffebeska som drar åt bränd brödkant smakmässigt. Känns väldigt stiltypisk, och gör det väldigt bra. Gott rakt igenom.
