Founders Porter pours black into the glass with a small tan head on top. The foam disappears quickly leaving a few spots on the glass.

The aroma is earthy with notes of roast malt, chocolate, nuts and coffee. The aroma grows stronger as the beer warms.

Each sip of this medium to full bodied beer is creamy on the palate with moderate carbonation. The flavor is much like the aroma. Chocolate seems to dominate, but also present are dark malts, ripe fruit, coffee and nuts. The dark malt isn't as roasty as it would be in a stout. It finishes with a mild grassy hop bitterness. Once gone the chocolate, nuts and grass lingers on the palate.

A great tasting beer that's easy to drink. However, you don't want to rush this one, The flavor gets better as it warms.

Bottled 09/17/2012:

Into a pint glass:

A: black colored body leaves a two finger tan/off white head that dies to a film within a minute.

S: coffee up front with strong side notes of chocolate and even as the beer warms up more some light vanilla comes out.

T: all of these previously mentioned flavors and becomes bitter and sweet in different ways.

M: light and smooth, really creamy. Since the ABV is moderate -I`d say this is sesessionable

O: I'm mostly impressed in this for its style and for me. I'd come back to this.
