Originally brewed for the working class of 19th Century London, the English porter is a precursor not just to other, darker porters but also to brown ales. Modern drinkers will find more similarities with contemporary brown ales than with contemporary porters but the slight and roast and caramel flavors of English Porter put it in a category all its own.
