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.

On bottle. A creamy texture, a nice Black color, with creamy white head. This is really a nice porter. It has notes of chocolate and roasted malt, weak notes of coffee, but nothing that controls the beer, which is really nice, to a difference.

commonmac (1311) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2017
Served up in a pint glass at Bulldog NE. One last visit to this place. Commonshawn along for the ride. Black appearance with decent lacing and a good frothy tan head. Nose is roasty and nutty with a healthy coffee component. Taste is pretty much a standard porter with above average mouthfeel (creamy and full bodied). Roasty malts run the show but the hop impact is felt towards the end... kind of a black IPA finish without heavy bitterness. Chocolate and coffee characteristics as you would expect. Overall a very solid porter.

malvrich (341) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2017
3 week old bottle > tulip A: Pours pitch black like dirty motor oil and flat looking but does form a big brown head that retains for a few minutes and laces in sheets. S: Dark chocolate and piney hops. A little cocoa powder and roast. T: Sweet and chocolatey at first, followed by bitter and fruity hop notes and light roast grains that linger a bit. Ends somewhat dry and powdery. M: Medium body with low level of smooth fine beaded carbonation. Slightly sticky finish. O: Very nice even if not a favorite style. This is about as dark and strong as I have need for. Highly recommended.
