Black or chocolate malt gives the porter it's dark brown color. Porters are well hopped and heavily malted. This is a medium-bodied beer. Porters can be sweet. Hoppiness can range from bitter to mild. Porters are often confused with stouts, but are distinctly different. Commerical excellent examples are Alaskan Smoked Porter, Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter and Sierra Nevada Porter.
