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. It’s a lover, not a fighter.

MaltOne (368) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Pours dark chocolate brown with medium, expresso-foam colored head that recedes gradually to light lacing on glass and surface. Toasty aromas. The effect is that this is a beer of substance, stature. Deep roasted notes, a coffee-like, dry bitterness, a hint of sour, with caramelized grains. It’s chewy, like a black bread, leaving the tonque with lingering entertainment. It can be sipped and savored. Though it’s substantial, it’s not heavy. Founder’s does it again. (I had this years ago, but had not rated it - my bother declared this to be his daily afterwork reward, so I had to resample.)

Draught. Black with tan head. Looks just like a porter should. Malty Aroma. Fuller bodied with malt and chocolate. ’N bietjie hop in the finish, but not too much.

Excellent porer. Maybe the finest of the genre. Really deeparoma, characteristic roasted malts. Very opaque dark brown, good persistent tanned foam. Overall, a great beer.

Bacchus66 (337) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. Enticing aromas of coffee, rich chocolate, roasted malt, caramel. The complex flavor doesn’t disappoint with more roasted character - coffee, nuts, chocolate with hops to balance. Creamy body and a lingering, balanced bitter coffee finish. Delicious.
