Stouts and Porters

Stouts and Porters are well-known as being those dark beers. They are full of roasted characteristics – often perceived as dark chocolate or coffee, and can include notes of caramel, nuts, fruit and smoke. Though typically associated with winter months, stouts and porters are becoming increasingly popular as year-round offerings due to the variety of styles and alcohol levels. Popularized in the 1700 and 1800s by London’s porters who hauled goods and produce to and from the marketplaces, it is only in the last few decades that they have made a comeback particularly in North America as a foundation beer of the craft brewing movement.
