This is a keeper. Keep this one in stock.

I concur from the Founders website:

Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders’ robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It’s a lover, not a fighter.

Nitro-tap, poured into a nonic pint.

A- Typical nitro pour. Beautiful brown head atop a rich brown-black body. Thick rings are left all over the glass.

S- Rich aroma of hazelnut coffee. Closing my eyes, I imagine I could be fooled into thinking I was presented with such.

T- Follows aroma. Straight up hazelnut flavored coffee. Unlike aroma, the flavor's a bit on the sweet side. Definite hit of "sugar in the raw.". Kind of like I took my coffee back in the day, 2-3 packets of cane sugar to a cup.

M- More nitro goodness. Creamy and smooth.

O- A great brew. Definitely fits the name. I had a couple and would have drank more if I could. Would not hesitate to drink again or suggest to a fan of hazelnut or flavored coffees.

Enjoyed this beer on site at Founders from a nitro tap.

The first thing I can say about this beer is the wonderful creaminess of it. It was poured into a pint glass and took a full five minutes to settle.

It left about 3/4 of an inch of dense light brown head that added some additional character to each sip.

The taste itself was sweet frangelico with a bit of a malty aftertaste.

Overall I savored this beer for twenty minutes as a friend and I had just stopped in to pick up a growler of something else. His jealousy that I had chosen this pint and he had chosen something else demonstrated how delicious each sip of this beer was.

Having this on a nitro tap certainly brought much of the dense creaminess to this beer so it would be interesting to taste it bottled or drawn off of a firkin.
