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 Foundersí robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. Itís a lover, not a fighter.

A very straight forward porter. Roasted malt smell, sweet. Slight taste of toasted malt, coffee, bit of bitter chocolate. Very good beer. When Iím in the mood for a nice tasting American style porter this is it.

Canít believe I havenít rated this. Superspak says, " 12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 5/8/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, coffee, toast, floral, light pine, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roasted malt notes with light hop presence; and good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, toast, floral, light pine, and roasted earthiness. Moderate coffee/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, caramel, light pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of roasted malt flavors with a light-moderate hop presence; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent porter! Great balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering as expected." So thereís that.

PapaSkeetSkeet (827) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Dark-chocolate colored with a centimeter of medium-brown head, which is surprising given it should not be as dark as a stout, which is questionable. It is certainly not translucent; however, there are glints of mahogany at the edges which arenít typically observed in stouts. Aroma is chocolate, biscuit, herbs, flour, brown sugar. Flavor is a light caramel with a slightly roasty or even smoked backbone. Burnt grain, earthy... Body is medium, on the watery, slightly oily side, with a moderate, pillowy carbonation, minimal burn. Lingering herbs on the flavor, pleasant bitterness. A truly great, not-sweet porter. Pushing stout though...

Aroma of heavily roasted malt with just a touch of smoke. Very carry bitterness with more smoke and chocolate. Very long finish. This is an outstanding beer.
