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.

Founders is one of the best breweries there is and this one lives up to their reputation. Roasted caramel, coffee notes finished with a light chocolatey sweetness at the end. Pours dark but drinks light.

RichardGretton (4292) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle. Black beer with a strong light brown coloured head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is well roasted and bitter with a degree of maltiness. Overall a nice porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1005) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 12, 2014
On tap @Mad for Beer (Rome). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma color cappuccino, abbondante e persistente. Al naso note di caffé e cioccolato, leggera liquirizia e anice, molto intensa. In bocca è ottima, ha un attacco cioccolatoso e un finale più caffettoso, amarognolo, che bilancia il tutto. Gran bel corpo, cremosa e vellutata al palato. Eccellente!

Dark brown color with small brown head. Aroma is coffee, bitter chocolate, and malts. Taste is very dry, roasted malts. All the way. Super Porter!

Like an IPA of the porter distinction. Nice subtle nose, quickly dissipating head. But Joseph: "you get the milkiness of it, then BAM hit you in the mouth." referring to hoppyness.

This is the first beer I have tried from Founders and I decided to go with the porter because I had heard such good things about it. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Creamy mouth feel. Not as big a head as I expected. Overall a very good and drinkable beer
