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. Its a lover, not a fighter.

Derek881 (1270) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Enjoyed this beer on tap at Hinge in Northmapton, MA. The beer had a rich, thick black color with a dark brown hue and a good-sized creamy-foamy off-white head with good retention and lacing, and great cling. Its aroma featured a blend of chocolate and caramel malt, with light touches of coffee, and some lighter earthy and floral hops. The taste was sweet and malty with features of chocolate, a bit of caramel, and some mild grainy-earthy bitterness, which was well blended. The body was slightly creamy and a touch on the wet side with average carbonation and fizz, and a good, filling and creamy mouthfeel.

Idiosynkrasie (7309) - 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.

Lore (2614) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 21, 2017
deep dark brown colour, almost one inch dense brown head; aroma of dark chocolate, burnt plum jam, toffee, some coffee, hints of soy sauce and roasted nuts; taste of dark chocolate, dried plum, heavy roasted, almost burnt sunflower seeds, some unripe fruitiness (maybe apple, or even more likely pear), over-toasted rye bread, hints of syrupy notes...and dark chocolate again! amazing porter with a body, which would be perfectly enough even for an imperial porter!

Robe noire et opaque. Robe beige bien persistante. Armes fum, caf, chocolat. Got malt, chocolat et caf. Le fum reste en bouche. Texture crmeuse. La carbonatation est fine et peu abondante. Bon porter.
