Porter – first brewed in London from well-hopped beers made from brown malt the Porter is a dark style beer very similar to a stout. Originating in the 18th century the term porter came about from its popularity with the street and river porters of the time.

The brewing history of porters and stouts is somewhat intertwined as the latter is believed to have come about from porters that carried a more strong and bolder profile.

Still, to this day there are few differences between the two as they carry more in common than distinction, and often are interchanged as descriptions for dark ales.
