 Stout & Porter
Porter was originally an English, specifically London dark beer style that was the drink of the masses long before lagers were conceived or modern ales were fashionable.
In the heyday of Porter in London, during the eighteenth century, the term "Stout" was used to denote the strongest and weightiest beers in a brewers portfolio.
Porters are red-brown to fl in color, medium to medium-full bodied, and characterized by a flavor profile that can vary from very subtle dark malts to fully roasted, smoky flavors.

 Beer & Ale Bottles
Beer bottles were of thick glass also since they had to be able to survive extensive post-bottling handling and use since these bottles were typically re-used many times, as evidenced by extensive base and side wear to many examples.
One note on beer bottle finishes is that these were some of the last bottle types to be more or less fully converted from true applied finishes to tooled finishes; many beer bottles from the early 1890s were made with applied finishes and tooled finishes were probably not ubiquitous until the mid to late 1890s.
Beer was and is made through the "mashing" of malted barley - a starch to sugar (maltose) conversion process - with the resultant sugars extracted from the grain through an infusion process known as "sparging." This produces a diluted "malt extract" which is then fermented with specific yeasts to produce beer (Papazian 1991).

Most accounts of British brewing in the 1700s say that Porter was a ready-made blend of three different styles previously available, sometimes known as "ale," "beer" and "twopenny." Because it was a combination of all three, it was also known as "Entire".
This beer is said to have been popular with the workers who carried meat, fish and vegetables in the produce markets to the East of Central London, none of them far from Shoreditch; hence the name "Porter." I feel that too much is made of these romantic stories.
