Porter is a dark, often deep black beer with a taste of malty or even roasted-malt. Traditionally Porter was hopped strongly, creating its tart flavour. Today the expression refers to for different kinds of beer. In the English speaking world, it is often applied to a top-fermented beer with an alcohol level of 5%. In other countries such as Germany, “porter” is used for a partly bottom-fermented, dark double beer with 7 – 9 % alcohol. Especially popular is the version brewed in the Baltic Sea area and is therefore called “Baltic porter” in the English speaking world. In Germany, a sweet porter variation existed even before World War I; it is still produced today.
