Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, Founders Porter is nearly black in the glass with only the slightest dark brown hues around the edge when held to the light. The head is thick and heavy - slow to subside, mocha in color and leaves nice gobs of sticky lacing on the glass as the beer is consumed. The nose is all roasty malt; coffee, chocolate, caramel and black patent are all present - slightly burnt and acrid smelling. The flavor is much the same with the little bit of caramel(y) sweetness coming through slightly and quickly on the onset, quickly followed by the darker roasted flavors of coffee and chocolate and then finally finishes with the acrid, burnt bitterness that leaves the mouth dry. Mouthfeel is medium to full in body with a adequate yet thin head; finish is very dry as previously noted. Overall a good beer but not on my list of beers I'd buy from Founders.

Pours a very dark brown a big brown head that reduces down to a still-substantial height with dimples dotting the foam. Aromas are predominately roasty with strong notes of dark chocolte truffles and tantalizing garnache. Big taste of sweetened cocoa up front, tons of expresso and roastiness on the midpalate. Finishes long on burnt sugar and a faint note of something like burnt fish (but maybe I'm just crazy). Leaves the mouth with a smoky taste minutes later. Body fills the mouth and saturate the senses. A wise choice for a luxurious digestive or a decadent nightcap.
