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. Its a lover, not a fighter.

Deep, deep brown...dark, oily-tan head. Aroma is a subtle mix of coffee, chocolate, hop, smoke. Taste is nicely smoky, all of the flavours balance smoothly, the chocolate,coffee, hops, roasts share the stage equally..... only the burnt wood/smoke stand out......and it works....perfectly. An outstanding porter. A cellar must-have. Bravo.

Bottle shared by Maekchu. Black with an oily-ass head. Rich nose of coffee, chocolate, nuts, hops. Sweet and rich flavor, creamy coffee chocolate. Great body. Rich and tasty. Seems like a stout to me.

Probably my favorite porter. A delightful, drinkable brew. Aroma is excellent: Head is medium brown. Coffee, chocolate, caramel, smoky, roasted malt. Balanced. A superior brew, not surprising for Founders. If you like Porters, this one is a must.

Wow, this beer is sexy! Pours black with no head. Awesome roasted malt aroma. Has a nice smoked chocolate taste and is very smooth. Clean dry finish. Good stuff!

aroma: More intense than in most porters. Bitter and burnt. Remniscent of raisins and cocoa and coffee. body: Creamy and smooth. Full-bodied. Taste: Begins surprisingly sweetish. Some tart fruit around the edges. Burnt coffee and a bit of chocolate. finish: Espresso and citrus fruit. Long lasting bitterness and dryness (a bit metallic?). overall: Excellent! A balanced, very drinkable stuff. Not very refreshing, but rich in texture and flavour.

Not the MOST perfect porter but very very close. A little smokey, very dark, creamy, rich, and still smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very dark brown with a medium-sized, light brown head. Rich and flavorful, with a roasty, nutty taste and coffee notes.

Served on-tap at Shady McGradys during a recent Happy Hour trip. A - Pours dark brown, bordering on black, with a nice one and a half finger tall tan head leaving spotty patches of lace down most of the glass. S - Smells of robust dark roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, coffee grounds, dark fruits and some black licorice. Nothing too over the top here, very nice balance. T - Starts off with plenty of dark roast - both from the malt and the coffee - slowly giving way to some sweetness from the chocolate and dark fruits. The balance of sweet to roast is fairly well done, the roast does become a bit overbearing as it warms but not too bad. Finish is roasty, lingering on the pallet long after consumption. M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. The dark flavors are strong in this one, lingering on the pallet long after the finish. O - Definitely one of the better American Porters out there. This one packs plenty of flavor and was very easy to drink. Glad I got this one.
