12 oz into a tulip...where does one draw the line between a stout and a porter? making a more stoutly porter does add some appeal to the masses but I'm not sure I'd call this a porter, if one is to take the classic stance that acidity (sourness) is the divider. more sour porters don't sell quite as well. this is a fine beer with a very dark body, good balance, smooth robust malts and a sweet full nose. I'm not totally sure I'd call this a porter if I stumbled upon this recipe, but I'd call it a damn fine session stout. cheers to Bell's for another fine beer.
