Founders Brewing Co.
Grand Rapids, MI
As I’ve detailed in earlier reviews, Founders has built a strong reputation and following for “big” beers, primarily from the Amer-English ale tradition. Their porter is no exception.
Big and dark brown, with a milk chocolate head, this thing checks in a little heavier than most, at 6.5 percent ABV. There’s a full rounded mouthfeel and excellent head retention, indicating a nice protein body, with a generous and completely balanced hop finish.
Although not as well known as many of their offerings, this is an above average porter, an excellent winter warmer, and one well worth seeking out.
