Beautiful pour, solid color with good initial aroma. Very even and almost milky mouthfeel that goes down deliciously smooth. One of my favorite porters and one of the best founders offerings.

pours black with a thin beige head and lots of lacing. aroma is bitter chocolate, with some wood. carbonation is light, body is medium full. taste is dark malt, bitter chocolate and some hops but only at the very end. finish is quite bitter for a porter. a very fine beer.

Short 12oz bottle. (Bottled on 04/28/11, 10:19.) Aroma of chocolate oozing from the glass. Black color, nice legs, medium brown colored head. Sweet nose of toasted malts, burnt sugars, and a touch of lactobacilus. Loads of chocolate, some coffee, molasses sugar, and mild wooded hops. Thick flavor of burnt grain, sooo much roasted flavors it gives an espresso character. Light fruit. The combination of burnt coffee and the hops have a bitterness that mellows out any sugar flavor that may still be there. This beer is excellence, a masterpiece of a Porter. So good it could possibly pass as a Milk Stout.

Black colour with tiny tan had. Caramel, toffee malt with chocolate. mild coffee and lots of sweetness in aroma. Flavour is smokey dry hops, sweetish malt, dry malt and lots of dryness in aroma. Some tobacco in dry flavour.

I read a forum thread today about a whats better, GL Edmund Fitzgerald our Founders Porter. This one is dark, nice head and some lacing. Just like GLEF. Smith and creamy, just like GLEF. This one is less bitter and less porteresque, with the characteristics of a milk stout more than a porter. Good beer, but I give the nod to Eddie Fitz.

Ok, so I had a bottle of this months ago. I was going to wait to get another one to rate it, but the hell with it. This is the best porter Ive had. It was pitch black with a slight mocha head. So much coffee and chocolate in there its crazy. Founders stouts are world-renowned of course, which I think contributes to why their porter kicks so much ass. The 6.5% ABV seals the deal. I drank this as a digestif, and couldnt have been happier with my choice. I like the Edmund Fitzgerald and Bells porter just fine, but Founders version to me is top of the class. Just plain awesome.

Initial smell and taste are of the 45 ibis. It smooths out into a roasted woody taste with a nice long aftertaste.
