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.

Slubgob (389) - West Hartford, USA - FEB 26, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2020 Dark brown bordering on black pour, minimal head. Chocolate and prune nose, which doesn't sound good but is immensely intriguing. Full rich mouth, lots of toast and chocolate, a gentle sweetness, and just a bit of hops in the back keeps it drier and wanting to go back for more. Excellent!

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2020 It's perfect. Unique. Awesome! Founders made a perfect porter, which, i think, one of the best in the world. Incredibly tastefully coffee notes, which just bring pleasure and patience. It's perfect beer for dark beer lovers and craft beer lovers. You also wouldn't find here some bitterness or disgust, only tender taste of perfect beer!

FACambridge (300) - Chelmsford, Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2020 Aroma : Deeply roasted chocolate & coffee malts, some caramel & dark red fruit sweetness. Taste : Smooth creamy chocolaty maltiness. Touch of dark fruit sweetness. The finish is bitter coffee, dry and earthy with a touch of burnt wood. Medium body pushing it to be more stout like than a porter...Very Good (Florida tour Nov 2018)

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2020 A very good dark beer. A creamy aftertaste. 6.5% alcohol but you don't taste the poison. It's a good one.

YD84 (254) - Buckie, SCOTLAND - JAN 17, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2020 355ml bottle. Pours jet black with a lasting dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted caramel malts, touch of vanilla, some dark fruits. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. The dark fruits are more prominent on the taste, especially on the arrival, which then give way to milk chocolate. The finish is a flourish of roasted malts and a coffee bitterness. The bottle describes the beer as 'dark, rich and sexy' and I can't find any reason to argue with that. A superb porter.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2020 Buona ma troppo luppolata. Per i miei gusti è esagerato il luppolo e alla fine stanca, non la si beve volentieri.
