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.

Smithld1 (968) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2022
UPDATED: APR 5, 2022 Lovely beer. Smooth, drinkable, a little tobacco but mainly the coffee, toffee, chocolate type notes you get from these beers. Not as complex as a stout but very sessionable

carlom (404) - ITALY - APR 3, 2022
UPDATED: APR 3, 2022 Colore nero, schiuma marrone poco persistente. Al naso cioccolato, caffè tostato, vaniglia, leggere note di tabacco. Al palato cioccolato, malti tostati, il gusto si mantiene sul dolce, nel finale si una leggerissima nota amara, impercettibile carbonazione. Una birra intensa negli aromi e ben bilanciata, facile da bere, il corpo è medio leggero, rappresenta perfettamente il genere.

johndoughty (7414) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2022
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2022 Black with a creamy head. Chocolate and coffee flavours are there, along with a few other interesting and pleasant flavours. Easy to drink but quite complex. Thought this might be a great beer but its not, just a very good one. Highly recommended. File under everyone must try this one.

ozzatoadisback (478) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2022
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2022 Pours pitch black with a dense and quite big off-white/grey head that shows quite good retention and some lacing. A simple, straightforward aroma of roasted malts with espresso coffee notes, plus light, bitter chocolate notes. A very clean but not too deep aroma, and also quite subdued. Taste notes are brighter and a bit richer: a quite strong roasted malts base, approaching the dry acidic feel of some examples of the style; notes of espresso coffe, bitter chocolate and maybe a hint of anise. Balance is on the bitter side in both taste and aftertaste, but there's some softness to it, resulting in a pleasant and balance overall experience. Medium body with quite low, light-bubbled carbonation, resulting in a nice semi smooth, semi soft mouthfeel. What i found is a simple and straightforward but well crafted interpretation of the style.

TtV (619) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2022 Bottle 355ml. Ink black with a fluffy beige head. Beautiful siruppy in the glass. Aroma of wood, cigars, reminds me also of anice? The taste is bitter with hints of dark chocolate and a bit metallic even which gets stronger in the aftertaste. Something completely different but I like it.

txspartan (1285) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2022 Creamy coffee aroma. Hardly any head. Sweet coffee flavour. Thicker texture.

SVD (4848) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2022 bottle at home, black beer, small head. Aroma is chocolate, malt, roast, hint of coffee. Taste is the same, bitter, chocolate, light sweet, very nice.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2022 No me extraña las puntuaciones que les dan otros usuarios. Es una cerveza perfecta.

dandeman (1902) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2022 Powerful aromas of milk chocolate and brownies with intense roasting. Thick foam, very dense and very persistent on a black liquid and quite opaque. The flavors are quite roasted with notes of dark toast, chocolate and coffee that drag until the finish. The finish is very dry and carries a good bitterness of roasted cereals that persists for several seconds. The flavors of hops are rather weak, but we detect a slight coniferous resin. The body is however quite thin compared to other examples of the style. A Porter rich and full of flavors. Excellent example of style. Aromes puissants de chocolat au lait, de brownies assorties d’une intense torréfaction. Mousse épaisse, bien dense et très persistante sur un liquide noir et assez opaque. Les saveurs sont passablement torréfiées avec des notes de pain grillé, de chocolat et de café qui trainent jusqu’en finale. La finale est bien sèche et traine une bonne amertume de céréales torréfiées qui persiste plusieurs secondes. Les saveurs de houblons sont plutôt faibles mais on y décèle une légère résine de conifère. Le corps est cependant assez mince comparé aux autres exemples du style. Un Porter riche et plein de saveurs. Excellent exemple du style. O:7.125 V:4.080 G:9.056 C:4.058 G:15.45 T:39.769
