People's Porter is a robust English-style brew with a dark, ruby hue. Complex chocolate, caramel and toffee notes give way to an herbal bitterness, finishing with a pleasant hint of espresso.

Appearance: Black as night. Pours a massive, creamy head!

Aroma: Sweet, malty delight, some roasty aromas with hints of chocolate and coffee.

Taste: Very rich chocolate flavour with robust and balanced body. Lingering aftertaste reminiscent of espresso.

Mouthfeel: Rounded and soft, creamy too. Full bodied.

Overall: I was pleasantly surprised by this brew, as I expected it to be a pretty standard porter (perhaps fooled by the name!). In fact, it's a very rich and tasty beer, with some complexity as well. Perhaps it's not as complex as some of its counterparts, but it's certainly no standard porter. Recommended!

On-tap at DD Peckers, West Ashley... served in a standard shaker pint...

A: Near black with a creamy, one-finger light mocha head that manages some nice retention and leaves some patchy lace.

S: Chocolate malt and roasty goodness.

T: Very impressed... nice and chocolately, yet not too sweet; good roasted malt profile, yet not acrid; hops provide good balance.

M: Medium-full bodied; a palate coater, yet not sticky; creamy and smooth... mmm.

D: Quite drinkable, although for me, a porter isn't something I'm really into throwing back a lot of... that being said, this is really good stuff and I was impressed.
