Porter is a style of beer which originated in London, England in the 1700ís. It became very popular there until itís decline in the 1930ís. A separate style of beer evolved from a porter, called a stout. Now a porter is typically the step between a brown ale and a stout in both color and body. Our Penance Porter is a robust porter. The color is very dark but not black. You may notice some dark red color. The aroma is noticeably roasty with a complex ester (fruit-like) quality. It is also dry hopped with Cascade hops, so you my notice a floral note in the nose. The body will be quite full and rich with caramel notes and more roastiness. When the beer finishes the bitterness from the hops nicely balances the caramel maltiness, then lingers for a moment before itís gone.
