About Porter Beer
Porter was a style of beer developed in London in the early 18th century. It was well-hopped and had a dark appearance due to the use of brown malt. Now days Porters are generally top-fermented and they use black or chocolate malts which creates its dark complexion. They typically have spicy, chocolaty, toffee and roasted grain flavors with a slight sweetness. There can also be undertones of coffee or licorice. The flavor is generally mild without the bitterness that can be found in a Stout.
Glass to Use:
Porters are best served in a traditional 16-ounce pint glass.
