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.

Bottle/12oz - Pours a very dark black/brown in color with a small tan head that faded quickly to a thin covering over the beer. Aroma is malty with dark roasted malts prevalent. Some chocolate and dark fruits. Flavor matches with some nice dark chocolate bitterness filling in the gaps. Awesome...

Bottle. Dark brown pure with a an thick frothy head. Aroma of roasted malt, earth and faint mocha. Velvety mouthfeel and full bodied, almost the consistency of milk. Lasting yet smooth finish. Phenomenol!

Rated on 20110325.
Pours black color with small head. Aroma clearly has some "danish vegetables", roasted malts, mild chocolate notes and ripe fruits. Flavor of ash dry chocolate, roasted malts and wood. Smooth palate, but something is a bit off. Not the best porter Ive tasted.

Patrickctenchi (6519) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2012
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.

KyotoLefty (10126) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 30, 2012
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!

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - MAR 29, 2012
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
