4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Very dark brown almost black. Very little carbonation what little there was was medium brown bubbles. Oily feel but also creamy. For the strength it has a lot of flavor. As stout as porters get before crossing into being a Stout. Well done. Serving: Bottle
Aroma of chocolate malt. Black in color with tan head. Medium sweetness with a light bitterness. Medium-body and creamy texture. A really nice porter. Christos (5860) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2017

Poured from its stubby bottle, this porter from Founders Brewing appears a thick, opaque dark brown-black, topped off with a thick layer of tan froth, which reeds quite quickly, to a thin brown ring, but leaving thick lacing on the glass when agitated later. The aroma is a mix of booziness - characteristic of dried fruits like cherries and raisins, and chocolates with roasted malts, which are mildly coffee-like in their aromas. Taste is a sweet mocha mix of coffee and chocolate, underlaid by roasted malts and nuts. This brew is creamy and smooth, its oiliness coating the mouth and lending weight to its already full-bodied feel. A favourite for a slow lazy sip! kryon (3607) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2017

Bottle 355ml, a dark beer with good copper head. Nose is on roasted coffee, aroma is very roasted, dry, light smoked notes, smooth texture, dark chocolate. Bit disappointed about the complexity. Some acrid finish cmacklin (1212) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a medium, creamy, long lasting, dark brown head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, licorice and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, licorice, chocolate, caramel and a hint of vanilla with a bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Awesome, a world class porter! salvaticas (849) - - JUL 29, 2017
