Porters held the title for popularity for several decades, often outweighing IPAs, RISs, and more with their delicious and creamy taste and texture. However, over time, the hop-bombs of the IPA world began to overtake the many types of porters on the market and claimed the crown for the time being. For those still interested in porters, or interested in trying them, we’ve put together a quick list of some Robust Porters that will have your taste buds singing a merry tune.
