Deep roasted quality with a little bite at the end - a big brash porter compared to the smooth easy stouts like guiness. Lots of character!

Halcyondays is the one responsible for giving me my first taste of Founders Porter! Thanks! On to the beer:

The beer is nearly ink black and has a sturdy enough head with solid doses of lace. it smells like toasted coconut and dark cocoa, two things which are pleasant together. In its taste, the beer has a dimension of nuttiness not found in the aroma. Semi-sweet throughout with coconut and nutty notes kicking around. That's enough to make Founder Porter a pleasure to drink,
