Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Foundersí robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. Itís a lover, not a fighter.

MarkoNm (1741) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 23, 2015
Pours a completely black, topped with almost no head to speak of, just a tiny tan cover. Mildly roasty aroma, nice chocolate notes. Mild taste, gently roasty, slightly sweet. A bit of caramel and a hint of bitterness. Nicely drinkable, very gentle. I like it.

tricyclist (1063) - Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Dark dark brown pour with khaki head. Nose is plenty of roast and caramel, dark coffee, a little burnt toast note. Flavor include more burnt toast, caramel and rich bitter coffee. Espresso, mild sweetness in the finish. Perhaps some darker fruits, but Iím not positive. Maybe dark currants? Either way, medium body, and super solid. 1642015

Pours a jet black color with minimal head retention and average lacing. It smells like cocoa and toasted malt. Tastes like roasted malt and chocolate. A very good porter and one that I would order again and again.

Tried at same time as Bellís porter. The Founders has a much stronger coffee flavor on both the tongue and finish. If that is your preference you might like founders more. I preferred the Bellís for not being as strong and having more choxo late than coffee flavor.
