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.
Pours a perfect ritmo de la noche with an aroma of chestnutts roasting on an open fire. Too bad Jack Frost cant nip at my nose right now... Lots of roasted character in this beer. Flavor follows suit; roasted nuts galore, with a slight coffee addition. Thick on the tongue. Fantastic beer.

Ernest (7602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, husks), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of vanilla and alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium to full body, creamy/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Its just a bit rough, and not terribly deep, but overall a pretty decent porter. Heavier than most.

Could this be the perfect porter? Everything you want out of the style is here. A light roastyness and mild sweetness with notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and burnt malts. I love this beer and always like having some around.

Cheers JoeMcPhee. Thick black, silky pour. Thin tan dirty head. Strong roasted malt, coffee with chocolate aroma. Roasted malt flavour follows through. Chocolate finish with a silky texture. Strong alcoholic notes in the finish.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is tons of roast, bitter chocolate and some earthy hops. Flavor is bold chocolate, roasted malts and some coffee leading into a slight bitter finish. Medium full bodied and delicious.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Pours black with a huge brown and rocky head. Nose is spruce sap and chocolate. Tastes sweet, chocolate sweet with a good amount of hop bitterness to balance. Crisp, clean and super fizzy. While the carbonation is excessive in the brew I doesnt necessarily detract from it. Great porter.

MaartenRF10 (1944) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2012
Black beer with huge head that fades fast. Aroma is great with a lot of chocolate and roasted malts. They do come back in the taste, but because the beer is highly over-carbonated, they are far less present than in the nose. Which really is a shame. Would the carbonation have been better, this porter would surely deserve a 4+ rating.

Ah, now thats a porter! Pours oily brown with a bit of head that leaves tons of lacing. Lots of roasted coffee and a little chocolate and smoke in the nose. Taste is similar with a nicely bitter finish.

erickok (5865) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Black with a bubbly, soapy head. Coffee - loads of it -, some coffee, cream. Sharp hoppy dark taste with some roasted nuts. Nice tingling mouthfeel. Tasty! (At the De Molen brewery tasting.) Re-rate. Pitch black, stable brown frothy head. Aromatic with herbal hops and luscious toasty and roasted malts. Lots of coffee too. Taste is more pronounced overall though, with creamy and milk chocolate malts, roasted bitterness and smoothing sweetness to round off. Nice brew, very high quality and very easy to drink. (On tap at Easy Tiger Austin)
