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.

12oz bottle; thanks Patrick!

A: Black body, dark brown highlights, and two fingers of fine tan head that settle slowly into a thick ring and leave lots of lace. Extremely attractive.

S: NIcely aromatic, with a strong mixture of dark fruit and coffee. Lots of raisin, dark chocolate, and char. Really good.

T: Sweet raisin up front, instantly overwhelmed by piquant coffee. Midway through the chocolate and smoky char notes come to the fore, with some earthy hops bitterness anchoring the finish. The aftertaste is a little on the bitter and watery side, but other than that it's really quite nice.

M: Definitely on the light-bodied side of the style, with lots of lively, spritzy carbonation. A little too...carefree for a Porter.

O: Very enjoyable, with some nice intensity especially in the aroma. The back end of the flavor was a bit of a letdown comparatively, as was the mouthfeel - both a little watery and astringent. Still, I like to see a Porter go for broke on the roasty/bitter end of the spectrum.
