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.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 Bottle at home. Pours black with brown head and heavy lacing. Aroma is chocolate and dark fruits. Taste is exemplary for this style; chocolate notes, sweet, slight hints of bitterness - really even. Finishes full and creamy with some tingle on the tongue. Blurs the line between porter and stout.

Bottle at caps beer garden, Newark airport. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate and a touch of hops. Pours dark brown almost black with a thin light brown head with good retention and nice lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors with a little bit of bittersweet chocolate. Finishes very smooth with the chocolate becoming prominent with a touch of hops. Excellent, full-bodied porter.

Gurthnar (3005) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle from Damian Beer and Ale. Aroma roasted, smoked, light dark chocolate. Very dark colour, quickly disappearing head. Taste is rich in various malty flavours. Roasted and smoked play nicely with chocolate, caramel. Soft creamy mouthfeel, easy drinking despite the relatively higher ABV. Dry roasty and slightly hoppy finish urges you to drink more. Exceptionally balanced, nothing stands out, fun to drink, complex. Very good.

Nera, quasi impenetrabile, riflessi color caramello, schiuma color nocciola abbastanza compatta ma non molto persistente. Aroma di cacao, zucchero caramellato e note di caffè. Al palato sempre cacao e note di caffè miste a caramello, leggerissima ciliegia. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata. Ottima Porter.

Excellent porter! Ça manquait un peu de mousse mais c’est son seul défaut. En bouche, c’est onctueux et bien chocolaté sans être trop lourd. J’en veux encore!!

Bottle to pint glass. Almost-black pour with a smallish tan head that sticks around for a bit. Mostly dark chocolate and caramel in the aroma, with some vanilla and bourbon notes in the background. Taste is similar - a little less heavy on the chocolate, and nicely balanced. One of the better examples of the style.
