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.

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.

IPAgutten79 (733) - Skui, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2015
Svart med lavt skum. Lun aroma av sjokolade, lakris og kaffehint. I smaken finner jeg rřstet malt, lakris, kaffe og noe sjokolade. Fin bitterhet. Medium konsistens.

bursprak (1179) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pitch black pour with a frothy light tan head. Nose has loads of milk chocolate, some light roast and light savoury notes. Taste is super smooth, milk chocolate, light coffee, caramel and some salty licorice. Super good!

adasko (890) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Aromat rewelacyjny. Masa kakao, masa kawy, masa czarnej czekolady. Piwo czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Niewielka piana, świetny lacing. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie, dużo kawy, dużo paloności. Paloność szczególnie w posmaku daje o sobie znać. Delikatnie zbyt mocno nasycone, ale nadal gładkie i aksamitne. Rewelacyjne piwo. Jakby z tego zrobić baltic porter albo imperial porter - zagięłoby system.

bagalagalaga (146) - Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2015
A little bit crisp and bitter when it hits your tongue, but almost immediately mellows out and lets some chocolatey coffee tastes through. However, I have to give it a 1/5 in both the categories of beer name and attractiveness of woman on the bottle.

fkoolen (515) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle at home. Oily black topped by a beige creamy head. Rich roasted malts with an abundance of soft coffee and chocolate, nicely balanced by some tropical fruity hops. Not too bitter or dry, more rounded and soft. Long finish. Low carbonation, good body (especially considering the low abv). Great meeting Founders Brewing with this ale.

Black in color with very little head. Not much carbonation. Strong taste of grain like chocolate or black patent malt. Roasted caramel, semi sweet flavor. Perfect blend of hops and malt.very little bitterness and sweet finish.
