Porter is a dark beer style originated from London. Porters are well-hopped beers made from brown malt, which makes them dark brown to black. The name was first recorded in the 18th century, and is thought to come from its popularity with street and river porters.
The history of stout and porter are interlocked. The name "stout" as used for a dark beer is believed to have come about because strong porters were marketed under such names as "Extra Porter", "Double Porter", and "Stout Porter". The term "Stout Porter" would later be shortened to just "Stout". Fun fact: Guinness Extra Stout was originally called Extra Superior Porter and was only given the name Extra Stout in 1840.
