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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Serving type: bottle, poured into mug

A: Pours a hazy deep brown with ruby hues and a thick dark tan head with high retention and significant lacing.

S: Carmel aroma with faint notes of coffee.

T/M: Slight burnt bitter taste with sweet caramel notes as well. Some hints of bittersweet chocolate. Overall, more bitter than sweet. The carbonation is more pronounced than I had anticipated producing a mouthfeel that is less smooth and creamy than other porters I have had. However, its crisp sharp character is not unpleasant and contributes to a dry finish that invites another sip.

O: A very drinkable porter with a pleasant bitter taste. Would pair equally well with fish and chips or a juicy burger.

A: Pours black with only a hint of brown when held up to the light. Head is massive on this one.

S: Subtle chocolate smell. A little roastyness. Smells a bit like rubber but that may be an artifact from work....

T: Super malty with chocolate notes. Leaves with a bit of stale bitterness. After a few sips the taste nearly disappears.

M: Goes down a little watery. Sits with a light creamy body.

Overall an ok beer. It tastes like a pretty average porter with the usual tastes. With no freshness date on the bottle I wonder if I didn't get an old bottle as the finish tasted quite stale. Oh well, this showing was pretty average.
