Beer 78/365 – Founder’s Porter

Style: American Porter

Purchased at: Vintage Estate – Boardman OH

What makes this beer different: Lots of flavor for a light porter

Will I be drinking this again: Yes for sure

Grade: A-

1/25/2010: Dark. Rich. Sexy. That’s what the label reads and pretty much sums the beer up better than anything I can type. Although the lady on the picture by today’s standards wouldn’t be considered very sexy. Maybe 100 years ago that type of chick would be my cup ‘o tea.

Have yet to try a beer from Founder’s that I don’t like. This beer is dangerously drinkable. The smell is straight chocolate, and the taste is pretty similar. A nice amount of chocolate with a bit of coffee taste. Very creamy for a Porter. Mouthfeel is a little heavier than a typical porter, but still on par. It also hides the alcohol well for it being 6.5%. Overall its a solid beer and very drinkable.

Funny Picture of the day: Damn engineers are pretty slick. Check out how this guy is drinking his beer.
