The quintessential British style brown porter. During the 1800’s this full bodied style of ale made up 80% of the beer sold in England.

bockimstein (167) - New Madrid, Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2011
12 oz bottle to pint glass. Pours nearly black with a few amber edges, tan head which laces nicely. I get chocolate and some bready malt, maybe a little dark fruit, a fig. Taste is very balanced, sweet molasses,bread, a little coffee and chocolate, but blended well. Has a very slight dry bitter finish that complements it quite nicely. Silky mouthfeel. A very nice beer from Blackstone.

Draft at brewery. The pour is a nice darker brown. The aroma is very interesting. Sweet and malty nose blend well. The taste is more nut brown than porter to me. Smooth and nutty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with tan head. Lots of roasted malt on the nose, some coffee and cocoa as well; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little hop note, very well done.

Panzuriel (1349) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2014
On Tap at Blackstone Restaurant and Brewery in Nashville TN. St Charles is a rich red brown brew with a nice head of small bubbles. Nose is sweet and hearty with roasted malt goodness. Taste is a bit of medium malt with good hop presence throughout. Body is a bit on the thin side, thinner than typical for the style. A good porter none the less.
