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.

After twelve straight hours of rain and cold, I need a good dark beer and this Founders Porter is a perfect choice. Looks amazing coming out of the bottle, nice tan head and almost completely black; beautiful porter. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and a herbal hops. Great smoky flavor filled with dark chocolate, toasted malt and a nice amount of spicy hops. Almost a perfect beer; robust, balanced, and delicious. Iím already ready for another.

Aroma: Toasted and roasted malts with hints of nuttiness. Appearance: Mahogany with rocky tan head. Taste: Light sweetness throughout with hints of bitterness at the edges. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, sweet finish. Overall: A rich, deep beer with lots of flavor. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The hops in this porter are a great compliment otherwise I wouldn't score it as high. Chocolate on the nose and a rich, dark chocolate, velvety taste. Overall a pretty damn good porter. One of my go to's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not much head. Pleasant chocolate and maybe yeasty aroma. Good malty flavor well balanced with just enough hops.

The aroma is burnt malt, coffee, chocolate, and hops. The appearance is dark dark dark brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma and quite bitter without much sweetness. The palate is smooth. Overall a good example of the style, itís definitely quality, but itís not sweet enough and personally I think itís overrated.

Bottle poured TJ's....pours dark as night, brownish black. Not much head. Aroma is chocolate, and lesser coffee. Some kind of dark fruit. First sip tasty, bubbly but not too much. Aftertaste of dark chocolate, clean palate. Hoppiness makes this a great porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
