Stouts and Porters

Somewhere in the early growth of craft breweries, they forgot about the dark beers; stouts and porters. Without delving into what the difference is between the two, they are returning to the mainstream in an array of substyles and alcohol strengths. The common bond is the roasted dark chocolate or coffee flavour that marks these beers. While all the beers scored well in this category, Yellowhead County’s Folding Mountain Parkway Porter best represented the bunch with its smooth character and understated balanced coffee and chocolate notes.
