This is the Patrick Roy of porters, the porter which with all others must now be compared. Founders substantiates the state of Michigan in the brewing community. If the sitcom Fargo could be enhanced by a beer, it is this beer. I would rather have one six pack of Founders Porter per week for the rest of my life than world peace, the ability to fly, or Scarlett Johansson.

There's a reason why Founder's is mentioned any time there's a discussion of breweries with solid (indeed, excellent) line-ups. Had as part of flight. Dark chocolate in color with a mocha head, aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits, a little baking cocoa. Taste follows, with some smokey, roasted bitterness. Thick and beautiful feel.

Well done Founders. One of my favourite porters. Cant get enough, the heaviness is exactly what I was looking for. Goes really good with Muenster cheese.
