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.

Opaque black beer, thick foamy light tan head. Toasted malt nose. Semi dry palate that is quite silky. Lightly toasted malt, a little creamy as well. An odd touch of glue is a distraction before unsweeet dark chocolate and a splash of espresso present. Could be decent but the glue is a real turn off.
