Porter

The English Porter is moderate-strength, light brown to dark brown colored beer with a restrained roasty malt character and bitterness. It may have a range of roasted flavors, generally without burnt qualities, and often has a chocolate-caramel-malty profile. More substance and roast than a British Brown Ale and higher in gravity than a Mild Ale. It differs from an American Porter in that it usually has softer, sweeter and more caramelly flavors as well as usually less alcohol. American Porter will also typically have more of a bitter hop character. Some stronger, hoppier and/or roastier version of porter are called Robust Porter.
