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.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a thin medium brown head. The aroma is full of coffee, chocolate and malts. A very roasted malt flavor comes through with a hint of chocolate, coffee, and even some nuttiness. The hops are very muted, but come through at the very end of the sip. This drank almost like a stout, but had a tremendous flavor and body. A huge porter.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5041) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2017
Bottle from Taniguchi. When I realized I hadnt had this Ratebeer Top 50 rated Porter I rushed to pick one up. It is a beautiful beer with a deep inky black with a tan head that is luscious but disappears fast and leaves gobs of lacing. Savoury roasty dark chocolate flavor with a medium bodied and toasted oats in the finish. A great beer.

Idiosynkrasie (7312) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2017
355ml bottle [A very big thanks to Maddie for not being in need to bewitch the Founders German market sales agent who succumbed to your natural charms in instantaneousness anyway!]. Quasi black colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, and lacing, tan head. Sweet-ish, chocolately, dark malty aroma, notes of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, hints of coffee and cocoa, hoppy overtones with a touch of grass, hay, weed. Taste is minimally sweet, heavily dark malty, minimally bitter roasty, chocolately, notes of dark chocolate, some caramel, hoppy counterweight with moderate bitterness and a resinous touch, cautious hints of coffee, malt lozenge and treacle, late some blueberry; oily texture, soft, minimally sticky palate, everlasting dark chocolately finish. Outshines the better part of beers boasting about the "Imperial" prefix.

W aromacie mleczna kawa. Odrobina czekolady. Nic specjalnego. W smaku szaleństwo. Gorzkie kakao, czekolada. Dosyć wysoko nasycone.
