This is my favorite Porter. It surpasses the others by providing an excellent overall experience. Pours smooth with a minimal toffee colored head. Malty and roasty with coffee, fruit and cocoa, balanced by some hop floral dryness toward the end. Dare I say a "sessionable" porter. Perfect for the colder months in the snow belt. Founders nailed this one.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown-black with a thin brown head. Aroma is chocolate, malt, nuts, and some fruit. Taste is chocolate, nut and hops. Bitter chocolate and coffee finish. A great porter.

The best widely available porter period. Dosent seem special at first, but the flavor kicks in when goes down the throat. Rich milk chocolate espresso, with a pleasant toffee nutmeg bite. Wow, if you havent had it, go get some right now. If you dont live in founders distribution area, consider moving...

One of the best examples of a porter that there is. Nice and smokey with a creamy mouthfeel. This is worth trying and isn’t incredibly rare like a few of their other beers.

Finally I get to try this. Dark, roasty, malty, chocolatey. A delicious porter for sure. Time to crack open the Breakfast Stout now =)

Porter noir. Arome de torréfication, de biscuit et de pain roti. Assez sucré et ronde en bouche. Bière très riche, près du stout.

Smells very roasty and malty, slight hop flavor. Taste is very malty, sweetness is balanced out by the roasted malts though. Kind of thin feeling, could maybe be a little thicker.
