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: MAR 13, 2006 Draft growler from the pub. Now I know I’m a rating whore. I passed up a chance to load up on more Breakfast Stout to get a growler of something I haven’t had yet. That and those bottle deposits. Well:
Deep brown to black color under a thick tan head. Big chocolate roasty smell. By the time I get to tasting this, it’s gone a little thin, more like a nitro stout. Light Brit mouthfeel can’t compensate for deep roasty black malts. Goes for quite a bit of bitterness, which makes me wonder why they didn’t just make this a stout? Still very very enjoyable.

Poured from its stubby bottle, this porter from Founders Brewing appears a thick, opaque dark brown-black, topped off with a thick layer of tan froth, which reeds quite quickly, to a thin brown ring, but leaving thick lacing on the glass when agitated later. The aroma is a mix of booziness - characteristic of dried fruits like cherries and raisins, and chocolates with roasted malts, which are mildly coffee-like in their aromas. Taste is a sweet mocha mix of coffee and chocolate, underlaid by roasted malts and nuts. This brew is creamy and smooth, its oiliness coating the mouth and lending weight to its already full-bodied feel. A favourite for a slow lazy sip!

355ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a medium, creamy, long lasting, dark brown head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, licorice and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, licorice, chocolate, caramel and a hint of vanilla with a bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a creamy, smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Awesome, a world class porter!
