In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Founders Brewing and it is their Porter. If you read my earlier beer blog post on their cherry ale, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read that post to get to know this craft brewery from the west side of Michigan. Let us get into the beer.
It has a jet black color without head on the beer. The smell is a burn chocolate to the porter. The taste is a burn chocolate with a smoky chocolate aftertaste. To average beer drinker, this is not drinkable. To your craft drinkers, this is a drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.foundersbrewing.com):
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.
- ABV: 6.5%
- IBUs: 45
- Availability: Year-round

In closing, I love my porters and stouts. I have to say Founders Brewing has a really good brew here. I was pretty impressed with this brew and this brewery. I believe I need to sit down and retry their beers. This porter has everything that a porter fan would be looking for in their beer. It has a nice chocolate taste. I could drink a few of these beers in a round, however, I believe your average beer drinker would not think this is a session beer. They might have one after dinner with their dessert. I recommend trying this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
