Back in the day, Porter was a blend of 3 different styles: old, new and weak ale that was varied in the combination of blending and staleness. It was quite strong compared to today. The terms “Entire Butt” or “Three Threads” were the common names given to it.
And finally…the pour. The color of the Porter was bordering on black with a thick creamy head. The aromas of dark roasted coffee, chocolate and caramel segued into a very creamy mouth-feel. The palate offered lots of coffee, chocolate and burnt sugar with a hint of toffee on the finish. It was quite rich and very filling. This would make a nice “dessert beer”!
