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.

mice (171) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Musta olut tummanbeigellä vaahdolla, joka katoaa kohtalaista vauhtia miltei kokonaan. Tuoksussa suklaata, paahteisuutta ja lakritsia. Maku paahteinen, suklainen, hieman kahvinen ja vain hieman katkera. Aavistus vaniljaa myöskin. Pehmeä makeus hallitsee yleisilmeeltään. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Pehmeää ja liukasta juotavaa, runko voisi olla aavistuksen vahvempikin.

De bomba de ma al Beer’linale. Cervesa amb aromes torrats i regalèssia potent. Color negre, cos mig-baix i carbonatació molt baixa. Final mig-sec amb regust de regalèssia. Bona!

Zlotta (1843) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2016
0.355 l bottle from ’P&M Getränke’, best before November 2016 (according to the annoying import label). Pitch black with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, light brown head. Sweetish-malty, lightly roasty aroma of milk chocolate, milk coffee, hazelnut and vanilla. Sweet, malty and slightly roasty taste of milk chocolate, milk coffee, toasted nuts, some vanilla and a touch of licorice, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice one, but expected more. Tasty, but rather ordinary Porter, especially the mouthfeel does not fully convince.

wombat23 (531) - Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is Roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate and coffee notes. Finish had some disconcerting mineral undertones. Nevertheless, it’s still a good porter.

Ein gutes, aber nicht besonders Porter. Leichte Süße, erdig, leichte Hopfenbittere. Insgesamt etwas enttäuscht.

Gespuccian (114) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Aroma is heavy on chocolate and sweet malt and dark roast. Pours a dark stout-like black, with khaki head. Taste has some chocolate sweetness, decent bitterness. Full palate, creamy, effervescent, with a slightly bitter and crisp finish. This is what other porters wish they could be. Defines the style.
