Poured from a 12 oz.. bottle into a tulip.
Coming out of the bottle, Founders Porter looks thick and viscous, with a nearly black color. There is a small off-white head that manages to leave a bit of lace down the sides of the glass.
The aroma is full of unsweetened dark chocolate and roasted malt. A bit of espresso and a generous hop bill adds a bitter aroma.
For a porter, this beer is definitely big on flavor. The unsweetened dark chocolate and roasted malts dominate, but a general hoppiness works its way in toward the end. Each sip also has a little bit of caramel sweetness, vanilla, and coffee.
Founders Porter is a little bit on the sticky side, despite not having a strong sweet character. The carbonation is right in the middle between creamy and smooth, and the body is on the full side for the style, despite not having a huge ABV.
This is yet another example of a well made beer from Founders.
