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: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: A dark brown pour with a big and fluffy light brown head. Fades somewhat slowly, leaving great lacework behind.

S: Creamy roasted malt with sweet caramel and some toffee. Dark chocolate with a little char. Hints of coffee bean. Caramel element really stands out here, wonderful.

T: Lots of toffee up front, almost an overload. Some bitter chocolate, roast and coffee in the middle. Very metallic, especially in the aftertaste. I think it's actually some sort of herbal hop presence that makes it taste like you're sucking on nickels. A touch of smoke in the lingering aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: Strange metallic presence in the taste really drags this one down. It's too bad, I had high hopes from the aroma. It's drinkable enough to finish at least.
