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.

Easily the best porter I have ever had. 12 oz bottle to pint glass. Pours black with small tan head. I get lots of chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet, but dry, with very good short bitter finish--complex does not really describe it. Velvet in the mouth.

Bottle pour. Chocolate malt aroma. Looks more like a stout than porter. Tasting cocoa, burnt malt, piney hops, licorice, a touch of coffee. Outstanding porter.

12 oz bottle pours black, thin light brown head faded quickly. Aroma of cocoa and burnt coffee. More bitter than I expected from a porter but I like it. This was a bit thinner than expected but it was very smooth, carbonation was spot on, and mildly bitter ending. Another terrific beer from Founders. The label caught my eye too.

Another well crafted beer from Founders. Very enjoyable porter with a spot on flavor profile offering both sweet and bitter that are both allowed to have their time in the spot light. My only criticism is that I wanted a little more in the mouth feel, felt a little thin.

Pours jet black with a stingy tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate. Taste is chocolate, woody, slightly bitter. Well balanced. Quality stuff.

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!

Chocolate,malt and coffey. Well balanced. Room for improvement in complexity. Very good porter though.

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.
