This beer brings perfectly roasted malt, hints of smoke, baker's cocoa, the essence of softly bitter coffee, hints of black licorice and red fruit together in harmony and balance in a very drinkable format.

Founders Porter can be consumed in relatively large quantities while still seeming substantial, and not watery in the slightest, with a smooth, balanced medium-full body for a Porter, and a soft, thick but balanced fizz.

When I initially rated this, it was as a side by side with Bell's Porter, before I began writing reviews instead of just ticking. It's too bad because it would have been nice to see my thoughts at the time relating the two.
