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.

Easily the best porter I have ever had. 12 oz bottle to pint glass. Pours black with small tan head. I get lots of chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet, but dry, with very good short bitter finish--complex does not really describe it. Velvet in the mouth.

12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head, and no lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. The flavor is very sweet, with just a little roasted bitterness in the finish. The palate is medium to heavy, creamy and sticky. Overall, this is a clean and tasty beer. Quite a good porter.

Purchased from "Jungle Jims" - Alright, my dark twelve ounce bottle poured forth a black brew with a finely bubbled tan head of foam and a rich mocha aroma. Tastewise, this is a rich, complex porter with no errors in taste, body, and appearance!

I was very excited to try the best rated porter, but apparently it has been knocked out of the top spot. This is really more like a chocolate stout and is defined as porter only for its being well hopped. It is black enough to block a flashlight beam, and leaves oily tan lacing on the pint glass. Aroma is straight chocolate, while the flavor contains some nut and oat accents as well. Very smooth throughout, nice full body. Highly recommended.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown, brown head. Aroma of chocolate nibs dipped in coffee. Taste is chocolate squared. Too chocolatey to be a porter, imho.

Chocolately as chocolate gets in a porter that isnt spiked with actual chocolate. Delicious. Dark, rich, and flavorful. 9-22-2010

Deep brown almost black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. These flavors continue on the palate with added toast and biscuit notes. Nice balance, great porter.
