Porter is a style I am struggling to understand. Reading the style guidelines porter seems to be almost identical to, or a variant of, a stout? I like stouts in general, but have yet to find a porter I like at all. I have tried more than I have reviewed because I don't think it is fair to rate a beer I don't understand. With so much overlap in the style description, I am surprised by this phenomenon. Trying to figure out what the real differences are between the two (if any) Not looking for recommendation to convince me I like them. Will admit I may not have tried a "good" porter yet, and there's plenty of styles I enjoy so not trying to make myself into a porter-phile. I am just trying to figure out why I seem to significantly prefer one over the other. Even looking at HB recipes, they seem awfully similar (American ones, anyway).
