One of the highest-rated porters in existence, Founders Brewing's Porter sets the standard for the style. Strong espresso, roasted malts and bitter dark chocolate are apparent on the nose. Similar flavours are evident on the palate alongside a mild hop bitterness that balances things out nicely. A creamy mouthfeel tops it all off and leaves you thinking that you should always keep this one on rotation in your fridge.

Brewery Info

Originally brewing middle-of-the-road beers for a wide and not-terribly-engaged audience, Founders realised that they’d have to change if they wanted to survive. They started making bold and complex beers instead, launching themselves to craft beer fame.

From coffee-infused Breakfast Stout, bourbon barrel-aged Backwoods Bastard and a 15% barleywine called Bolt Cutter, you can’t accuse Founders of being dull. As well as brews that push the boundaries, their lower abv. range is a more accessible introduction and includes the excellent All Day IPA.

It was clear from the nose to the throat that this was exceptional, Well Done Founders Brewing Quality!
A bit heavy-ish on the palate for me

Nice beer but a touch heavy on the palate for me. I often drink Rochefort 10 but found this a bit too heavy so thats going some.
