This is my absolute favorite porter! Every time I'm at my local beer store, Peabody's, and I'm looking for a libation to warm me up on these cold mountain winters, the Founder's Porter is what I reach for. I love everything about this beer! The taste is awesome with dark, roasted malts and just enough hop flavor and aroma to compliment that dark, rich, and sexy mouth of real beer. The only thing I've had as good if not better is Caldera's "Mogli".

Pours dark with a nice tan head and nice lacing. Smells of subtle cocoa. Tastes of slightly roasted chocolate with a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth. Delicious beer! Founders makes great beers! This is my favorite porter hands down.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - pours pitch black with a root beer float head which quickly dwindles to some thin lacing around the edges.
S - bitter chocolate with just a hint of coffee
T - similar to the nose but also with some caramel toffee notes.
M - thick, creamy, a bit wet. Would rather it a bit drier.
O - one of my favorite American porters. Hard to beat it for the price. If the finish was a bit drier, I'd have a hard time drinking anything else.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, served near room temp.

Black as night with a chocolate malted head, nice lacing.

aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, some smoke and an herbal hoppiness.

mouthfeel is soft and mousselike.

taste; riched roasted malt, chocolate syrup with a strong smokiness that lingers on the palate with a pleasing bitterness.

notes; kaboom!!! C'est arrive! THIS IS a porter!
