People's Porter has a medium, beige, soapy head, a dark-brown, opaque appearance, with brown highlights. The aroma is of slightly sweet, somewhat astringent, with a vegetable (celery) smell. Taste is of the same strange thistle-like flavor, some powdery chocolate, and roasted barley malt. Bitterness is low, and the alcohol doesn't show itself. Mouthfeel is light and fairly slick, and People's Porter finishes semi-dry and decently drinkable. Maybe, another batch would be better.
