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.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 Bottle at home. Pours black with brown head and heavy lacing. Aroma is chocolate and dark fruits. Taste is exemplary for this style; chocolate notes, sweet, slight hints of bitterness - really even. Finishes full and creamy with some tingle on the tongue. Blurs the line between porter and stout.

MelvinKalksma (1516) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and hops.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a slight/medium brown/dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. This is especially true for its abv. Great chocolate and coffee flavour, making this a great porter. Perfect appearance and a great palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.

Dark brown -nearly black with a brown head. Coffee and chocolate are notable in both the flavor and aroma. A little ash comes through. Malty but well balanced by both the hop bitterness and the dark roasted grains. a long malty, burnt grain finish. A good solid porter by any measure.

alteregoo (1396) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAY 26, 2017
Piana drobna, kremowa, obfita. Kolor prawie czarny, nieprzejrzysty. Bardzo przyjemny, mega czekoladowy zapach, przeplatany kawą cappuccino, ciastem czekoladowym i karmelem. W smaku półsłodkie, głównie mleczna czekolada, kakao, mleko w proszku, karmel i troszkę kawy zbożowej. Niska do średniej, tytoniowa goryczka, niskie wysycenie, gładkie, lekko wyklejające i dość pełne w odbiorze.
Faktycznie Dark, Rich & Sexy, przy tym nieźle pijalne i mega smaczne.
