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.

AssKicker (585) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - SEP 11, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2017 Couleur bien dark, petite mousse persistante. Nez chocolat et café grillé. Idem en bouche avec une petite note vanillée en fin de bouche, mais le grillé qui perdure bien bien longtemps. Assez ronde en entrée de bouche, mais ça paraît plutôt sec sur la fin avec une petite amertume qui fini par se développer. Vraiment bien dans le genre.

Cimbasso (927) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2017
Stubby bottle from Prohibition Wines. Pours a dark, opaque brown/black with a dark tan head. Roasted malt aromas, and a taste of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and cigar ash. Nicely bitter finish (45 IBUs!). Boozy taste and mouthfeel and very velvety. A first-class porter!

BrewWhatIWant (257) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2017
Pours black with a decent beige head. Aroma is coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is little sweet and medium bitter with notes of coffee, a little cocoa, pine and pineapple. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. The hops create a pleasing long finish but I would say that it's too prominent and takes away from the typical richness of the porter.

Poured from its stubby bottle, this porter from Founders Brewing appears a thick, opaque dark brown-black, topped off with a thick layer of tan froth, which reeds quite quickly, to a thin brown ring, but leaving thick lacing on the glass when agitated later. The aroma is a mix of booziness - characteristic of dried fruits like cherries and raisins, and chocolates with roasted malts, which are mildly coffee-like in their aromas. Taste is a sweet mocha mix of coffee and chocolate, underlaid by roasted malts and nuts. This brew is creamy and smooth, its oiliness coating the mouth and lending weight to its already full-bodied feel. A favourite for a slow lazy sip!

3.9
