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. Bridgetís Porter. St. Bridgetís is a smooth, elegant, and chocolaty brown porter. Brimming with coffee and chocolate characteristics from dark barley malts, St. Bridgetís is carefully hopped to provide the perfect complement to its malty robustness.

Good strong porter. I thoroughly enjoyed this brew. I heard great divide will no longer be distributing beer where I live. Bummer they will be missed.

A - Pours a fairly dark brown-black color wit ha finger of frothy tan head atop. The head fades slowly down to a thick ring leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted caramel and coffee and some sweet chocolate. There is even some noticeable hops in the background. T - Starts off with lots of roasted coffee and caramel flavor with a bit of hop in the background. Bit of wood as well. Through the middle, some chocolate flavor and stronger roasted flavors come through. The finish is a mix of coffee and dark chocolate that lingers for a while. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall smooth and even a bit creamy. The roasted flavors really fill the mouth nicely and the coffee flavor that lingers is very pleasant. D - Very drinkable. The coffee and chocolate flavors mix together very nicely. The hop addition is also mixes in really well.

The beer pours a light black, showing brown in the light, with a very disappointing light tan head. It raises maybe half a finger but is gone quickly leaving a disappointing light soapy film. The aroma is pretty subtle, Iíd like it to be a little more assertive. What presents itself is mostly coffee a total one noter, sadly. The taste is ALL COFFEE, whereíd that come from. Way to much coffee and nothing else. Iím canít believe this isnít a coffee stout. Boring and no complexity. The feel is great, totally coasting and lasting.

Thanks bro! Pours silky brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of oats and funk, with some molasses. Roasted oatmeal taste that fades into coffee and bitter chocolate. Mellow and slightly carbonated, with a lighter body. Great aroma, but the taste is lacking intensity and body. Could be great with a little work.

Bottle. Pours a clear, deep red/brown with an off-white/beige head. Sweet aroma; roasted, remote hops, chocolate and slight creamy and spicy notes. A bit cloying. Sweetish and a bit tart flavour. Roasted and chocolate notes. Finish is dry with some mild smoked notes and a mild bitterness as well. Lingering grassy and apple notes. Overall decent, but doesnít really do anything for me. Also, too cloying for my liking. 04.12.10.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a very dark, chestnut brown body, with very little head (probably served too cold). The aroma has strong chocolate notes and some slight berry notes. The beer is full bodied with crisp carbonation, the flavor is generous in itís roastiness, leaving a pronounced but short lived aftertaste on the sides of the tongue. This perter isnít bad, though I would like to have the coffee/chocolate flavor linger a littler longer. I find that it goes a little too quickly, leaving the end notes flat.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 12, 2010
THOUGHTS: Nice porter. Iíve had some better and some worse. Middle of the road. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, very dark red that looked nearly black in the glass, but was bright crimson when backlit. It also had a large, tan head that mostly lasted and left excellent lacing that truly looked like lace. The aroma wasnít bed, but was weak. There was moderate roasted and burnt malts, chocolate and coffee; and light to moderate hops. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet, acidic, and lightly bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet, bitter and acidic with a slightly longer than average finish. There was roasted malt, a little chocolate, slight coffee, bitter chocolate, bitter coffee and hops blend in the finish, and slight dark fruit. The light to medium body was silky with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic, slightly dry and ever so slightly astringent finish.

Heard they stopped making this one, so when I saw a bottle that was still within a year of bottling I decided to pick it up and review what I had heard was a good porter. Not a disappointment. Very straightforward, slightly burnt coffee nose with hint of bacon smokiness. Taste is chocolate malt heavy with slight espresso. Not overly complex, not a beer you need to think about a lot, but good flavors and nice drinkability.
