Amazing! The appearance was dark brown, almost black with a thick coffee colored head. The smell had a great amount of malt with hints of coffee in the nose. The taste was extraordinary with coffee, dark chocolate, and molasses. The sweetness wasn't overpowering though with a mellow malty finish. Highly refreshing and even though it's summer, I found this beer goes great with bbq or any kind of meat. This was a great beer all around. If you're a fan of the dark stuff, this is a great next try.

Sampled last night on 6/6/14. Bottled chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a very deep brown to black in color with a small beige head. Spotty lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts with a hint of coffee. The taste is all of that and more with a hint of caramel, smokey roasted nuts with lots of flavor! Very tasty and goes down easy. A great brew!

The beer poured a deep dark brown to black with a subtle tan head. At that point I allowed it to sit and warm as I knew it would improve. Once I returned I was rewarded with aromas of deep dark chocolate, sweet malts and a hint of coffee. The first taste was a deep roast with full chocolate and coffee that end in a subtle bitterness. The Porter was a velvety smooth and sublime beer that is a porter for all porters to be measured. I was impressed with the depth and fullness of the brew and how quickly it disappeared in my glass. The Founders Porter was one of the best porters I have had and an impressive beer for their year round lineup.
