It's often a lesson in subtlety that differentiates between a porter and a stout. Founders porter is one that I believe crosses that line into stout territory. It pours nice and dark with slight tan lacing and only minimal carbonation. It smells of burnt umber and dark fruits, and tastes of roasted malts, coffee, sugary plum and raisin and charcoal. The taste is exactly what you expect on the smell with maybe a hint of chocolate tossed in to boot. It drinks easily with some oat additions and is chewy, rich and smooth. Overall, it's a solid effort but in a blind tasting with all of it's depth and flavor, i'd grade this one as a stout.
