Thirsty Thursday: Porter

Thirsty Thursday: Porter

The name porter comes from the fact that this style of beer was very popular with port workers in London in the 19th century. Signature porters were robust and warming beers, with big chocolate and coffee aromas, flavours that were said to give the laborers strength.

All very different. After trying each beer we gave each characteristic, aroma or flavor, a score from 0 to 10. Here are Nina’s thoughts on the beers. 👇

We found that the porters to stayed true to the original style, all having a slight sweetness from all of the beers and that roasted malt characteristic you get from porter. The stand out beer for us all was of course the India Porter from Northern Monk. After taking a look at the beer the hop flavour is really not what you expect from it. First you get the signature roasted flavour before the citrus notes slowly creep in. Sounds wrong, but tastes so right.

Of course, everyone tastes beer differently but here’s what Nina thought of all the flavours and characteristics between the 4 Porters.
