3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with an amber hue. Large tan head and good amount of lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, hints of dark fruit and coffee. Taste is heavy on the roasted malts up front with coffee, dark chocolate, plum, and an underlying earthy hop bitterness. Tasty sweetness and bitter mix in the finish of toast, dark chocolate, and hop resin. Medium bodied, oily but slightly thin texture, average carbonation. Interesting beer. Taste and mouthfeel are kind of a mix of a porter and a brown ale.

This beer is phenomenal! An absolutely perfect representation of a Brown Porter and the GABF medals prove it. Well balanced malty deliciousness. My favorite Porter by far.

Shared from a 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a clear dark brown colour, reddish at the edges, with long-lasting beige foam and lots of lace. Aromas of toast, roasted barley, plums, raspberries, coffee. Flavour was tart, toasty again, caramelly, fruity, bright coffee-like acidity again. Nice bready malt flavours with true-to-style English hop balance. Light body and carbonation, a bit thin but not to the point of watery, with a nice chalky/mineral water mouthfeel. A basic but well-crafted Porter. Good stuff.
