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.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2013
This black nectar folds into the glass crowned by a light brown head. Nose is malt, molasses and caramel. Thick viscosity and very creamy on the palate. Flavor is bold with forward taste of dark roasted malts, coffee, molasses, and dark chocolate. Finish is well balanced with some dry hops evident. An excellent porter. Try it with brats off the grill.

Best porter/stout I've had yet and this is a category I didn't like at first. This one is super smooth, velvety, and full of chocolate flavor. I still have a hard time detecting the coffee in this category. This I will definitely buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cwill (45) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Pours blackwith one finger of tan head. Very nice lacing as it goes down. Aromas of black coffee, rich dark chocolate, roast malt and hints of cream, and burnt toffee. Flavor follows the nose begining with rich and deep notes of roast malt, black coffee and bitter cocoa and toffee. Middle continues this flavor, adding bittersweet chocolate and light burnt caramel. Finish is roasty and bitter with notes of coffee with cream, black coffee and roast malt along with a light sweet caramel. Aftertaste is of burnt toast and roast malt. Mouthfeel thick, creamy and velvety smooth with moderate carbonation. This is a fantastic porter, well deserving of all the accolades

nitram63 (7) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2016 does not count
Looks and pours like any other porter. Smooth like Fuller’s London porter, but more flavorful. No harsh leafy tastes like cheaper porters. By far the best porter I’ve ever had, save for Funky Budda’s Maple Coffee Bacon porter.

smroush (156) - Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Nearly black in color; modest tan head. Lots of roasted aromas, coffee and a touch of chocolate. A general bitterness from the hops. Mild to moderate sweetness; medium to slightly heavy bitterness. Full bodied; slightly thick, oily texture; average carbonation; finish is is long, sweet, bitter chocolate and roasted coffee. Overall a very good porter; rich and flavorful with reasonable complexity.

DubCInjun (20) - - JAN 29, 2016
Pours a dark, dark brown with a 1/2 inch dark, tan head. Has the smell of dark chocoloate/good coffee. Has a medium body with a wonderful burst of flavors - chocolate, coffee, light hints of hops, and a sweet finish with just a little bit of pleasant bitterness. Tremendous.

Bottle. Hazy dark black pour with tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao, caramel, hops. Full bodied flavor with a hefty mouthfeel, ample dark malt, and well integrated finishing hops. A masterpiece.
