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: MAR 6, 2014 Pours pitch black with little to no head at all. Roasty aroma with some chocolate notes. Flavor of roasty coffee with a subtle chocolate. Very little bitterness, mostly maltiness. Medium body. The best part about this beer isn’t as you’re drinking it; it comes AFTER you drink it. It’s a great beer to drink, don’t get me wrong. But after you’re done with this beer the wonderful coffee/chocolate flavor lingers on and on and on and on coating and tingling your palate for hours. I would like to thank this beer for introducing me to the wonderful world of porters.

Mmm, deliciously complex porter! Pours black w/ a big mocha head that leaves lacing. The aroma is full of chocolate & roastiness. The taste is quite similar as it hits w/ tasty chocolate sweet notes only to finish w/ a big bitter & coffee like finish. Another great beer from the best!

Oil black pour. Nice lacing. Aroma dark roast chocolate coffee. Taste easy drinking velvet smooth. Bitter dark chocolate in the finish. Some smoke this would be anyone else’s stout. Interesting brew.

Thin tan head on top of brown turning black body. Aroma a smidge alcoholic and a bit like wood lacquer. Super smooth palate with chocolate, malt, and coffee notes. Nice finish with sweetness ending at satisfaction.

The beer pours a dark black with a thick tan head that left good lacing around the glass. The aroma is very sweet chocolate, roasted malts, toffee, and caramel. The taste is somewhat bitter dark chocolate, roasted nuttiness, toffee, caramel, some woodiness, and some hops in there as well to round out the beer. The mouthfeel is rather thick and silky. The drinkability is super high with this beer even at 6.5%. This truly is a world class porter that I highly recommend.

Nera, sentori di affu,icatura, tostature, orzo, e un po’ di caffè. In bocca è lo stesso, legata magisttalmente con un finale amaro bello lungo e caldo, un po’ terroso. Birra sublime, non c’è che dire.

In bottiglia. Porter sicuramente ben fatta, nessun particolare difetto e aromi di caffè soprattutto e cioccolato amaro ben evidenti e piacevoli. Detto ciò ci vorrebbbe qualcosa in più, classica senza emozionare
