COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Bridget, a legendary Irish saint, created a sensation by turning her bathwater into beer. What better way to celebrate her worthy miracle than with our zymurgistic tribute to her feat, St. Bridget’s Porter. St. Bridget’s is a smooth, elegant, and chocolaty brown porter. Brimming with coffee and chocolate characteristics from dark barley malts, St. Bridget’s is carefully hopped to provide the perfect complement to its malty robustness.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2012
12oz bottle from Total Wine, Durham. Backlog rating. Always a solid, go-to porter, I was mightily puzzled to learn that GD had retired this brew. Thick chocolatey pour, with a light but consistent carbonation. Flavors of roasted malts, tootsie roll, and espresso in the finish.

ReggieDunlap (3055) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2012
Pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma has some chalky cocoa, light roastiness, and very mild dark fruit. Flavor has roasty malts, a hint of peat, and some tea notes...odd and very faint shellfish note. Mouthfeel is medium and silky and the finish is roasty/faintly peaty and mildly burnt.

zestytaco (34) - Niceville, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Pours a very dark brown with faint hues of red and very little head. A little light on the nose with typical porter scents of coffee and chocolate. The taste of smokey malts starts this brew out but that taste quickly fades to a dryness in the end. Not a bad porter.

Nice porter. Really enjoyed this. Roasty, malty, and easy to drink. Small notes of coffee.
