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.

Inky black/brown body under a slow, thick mocha head. Deep, lush aromas... cocoa, smoky malt, burnt matchsticks, coffee roasts, then more sweet chocolate syrup (enticing to the point where I had to stop sniffing and start drinking). Thick, luscious mouthfeel, "full bodied" in every last sense of the phrase. Flavor blows me away like every other component thus far: Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, char... incredible bittersweet deliciousness. ~~~~~~~ Purchased a few weeks ago in a mix-a-six from Woodman’s in Carpentersville, IL.

Where Purchased: 347ml bottle from Meijer Consumed: from a pilsner glass Aroma: Smells malty and sweet. Not much of a hop smell. Appearance : unfiltered black with lots of head that disappears very quick. No lacing but dark brown stickyness. Taste: Very sweet and malty. Complex without hops. Palate : full body. Sweet aftertaste. Good carbonation. Overall: What a great beer. Smooth and malty sweet. Complex and easy drinking. I was glad to try and will buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

Appears from a draft pour a very dark brown and a one finger medium brown head that laces the sides of the pint glass it is presented in. Aroma is mild, yet taste is good and well balanced. This is pretty much a benchmark porter. Its medium in body, moderately roasted, and has brown sugar and light coffee flavors.

ironcontra (450) - ATL, Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2017 Light-bodded porter, hoppy, but chocolate and coffee still come thru, eminently drinkable, a little weak on the aroma tho EDIT: the more I drink of it the more it grows on me, one of those classics that isnt obnoxious

Brune sombre, très forte mousse beige. Nez superbe de café grillé-fumé avec note chocolat. Gout pareil de café "grand cru" légèrement grillé et fumé avec note chocolat creme . Corps cremeux et rond en bouche. Fin amere café torréfié. Assez classique en complexité mais magnifique en saveurs et intensité! Une bombe dans le style

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2017 Botella 33 cl en el el Taxman León 27..10..2017. (r2208). Color negro intenso con espuma beige oscuro persistente. Sabores maltosos tostados con toques carbonizados. Ligeros especiados, cacaos y café torrefactos. Cuerpo medio a intenso con buena sensación alcohólica desde el principio. Cierta densidad y algo espumoso. Para repetir sin duda.
