Another American beer based on an English classic, the American Porter is related to the English Porter, but taken to a higher level of flavor and intensity.
Generally a medium to dark brown, a Porter can be thought of as a less-strong version of a Stout. There are many variations of the American Porter style, some with smoked malts, some highly hopped, and some add coffee or chocolate to enhance the dark roasted chocolate malt and roasted barley flavors. Most Porters are on the bitter side but well balanced and complex. There is also an Imperial Porter style which, like the Imperial IPA and Imperial Stout, is a stronger version of the non-Imperial style.
Best served between cool and cellar temperatures, around 46-57 degrees, and in a pint glass or beer mug.
The beer, which can be sampled at over 100 breweries throughout the country, was inspired by one recipe. Each participating brewery was invited to brew the beer with the understanding that even with the same recipe, no beer could be exactly the same.
