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.

Roasty caramel aroma, dark black color and brown head. Taste like coffee, very bitter and a little sour. Quite creamy in the mouth. Long finish. Great porter.

Satyroneto (297) - BRAZIL - AUG 14, 2016
Cor negra com espuma marrom escura (de capuccino) de média formação e média persistência com bom lacing. Aroma intenso de cacau e baunilha; com elevação da temperatura percebe-se notas de chocolate amargo e um pouco de álcool. Sabor intenso de cacau com final de leve dulçor de chocolate, migrando para um retrogosto de leve torrado de café. Alcool perfeitamente inserido, sendo perceptível apenas com a elevação da temperatura. Corpo médio e baixa carbonatação.

AROMA-Rich malt aroma, dark caramel, maillard product, darkfruit, hint of coffee, faint hint of smoked malt. Hop aroma is light citrus mixed with malt very well. Balance is very well even. Slight oxdation feeling but pleasant. APPEARANCE-Very dark brown color. Tan head. Lacing. FLAVOR-Moderate dark caramel sweet, well balanced with darkfruit and prune and citrus hop flavor. Black chocolate flavor, with faint hint of milk. Finish is dry, light alcohol, light oxidation. Hop bitterness is between medium to medium-hight supported the sweet just right. Aftertaste is black malt, sweet and bitterness, very good, but with a light astrigency, had a slight woody feeling. MOUTHFEEL-Medium body. Carbonation is medium-high, slight astringency and biting. OVERALL-Excellent porter.

Maakun (3618) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2016
Tap at Founders. Lots of blackberries, dark chocolate, brown sugar, some stale coffee too. Quite sweet with soft roasted bitterness. Over medium bodied with slick feel. Nice beer but a bit weird for a porter.

KoNrRiI (1181) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2016

0.33 draft.
A pitch black color with a small, brown head of average retention. A sweet aroma of dark fruits, malts, roast, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is also sweet, very malty, wood, coffee, and chocolate carry over from the aroma but it also introduces some honey. A full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, sweet, and strong - doesn’t really differ from the main flavor. Overall the beer is quite good.

Aquilo (621) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Pours black with a thick brown head. Rich roasted nut, coffee and chocolate aroma. Bitter but smooth flavor. Velvety mouthfeel. This is pretty much the textbook example of a porter, and I love it. Give me more.

mice (782) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Musta olut tummanbeigellä vaahdolla, joka katoaa kohtalaista vauhtia miltei kokonaan. Tuoksussa suklaata, paahteisuutta ja lakritsia. Maku paahteinen, suklainen, hieman kahvinen ja vain hieman katkera. Aavistus vaniljaa myöskin. Pehmeä makeus hallitsee yleisilmeeltään. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Pehmeää ja liukasta juotavaa, runko voisi olla aavistuksen vahvempikin.
