This chewy wintertime treat is brewed with with oatmeal in the mash for an earthy, smooth palate. Wafting through the tan-colored head, you get an unusually high hop aroma from the judicious dry hopping, yet pleasant resiny flavor and fruity esters. Prost!
The American porter is a juiced up version of the English porter - more of everything basically. They range from very sessionable to big barrel-aged beers. Lots of aroma and flavor of smoke, roast, cocoa-like sweetness and with all the fullness of the hops and dark malts. Drier and more bitter than a stout, but less creamy and rich. Moderately strong malt flavor usually features a lightly burnt malt character (and sometimes chocolate and/or coffee flavors) with a bit of grainy, dark malt dryness in the finish. Overall flavor may finish from dry to medium-sweet.
