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.

Dark brown beer, with a thick beige head. The aroma is sweet, with notes of roastet malt, chokolate hops and metal. The taste is also sweet, with ar sourish bitter aftertaste. Good notes of coffee, malt, chokolate and citrus. Itís a good porter, but not as robust as the lable claims.

This is a nice red brown hued black color w/ a bit of a lasting off white head and little patches of lace. The nose is a pleasant roast coffee and dark chocolate aroma but the flavor and texture is a bit thinner and less rich than one would hope. Rather dry, perhaps in homage to the Irish namesake and very drinkable though. The carbonation feels like it is about the correct level but this maybe lacks just a bit in creaminess given the flavor palate it uses. This fills itís purpose reasonably well but just doesnít quite make it to the level of the best porters.

Pretty good caramel porter. Not as "robust" as advertised, and compared to some of my favorite porters (Duck Rabbit, Founders), it doesnít stack up well, but itís still a solid beer. Definitely would drink again.

Pours brown (near black in-glass) with a big brown head. Nose is a blend of chocolate and some bittering hops. Flavor is of similar composition with a good dose of roastiness coming out on the backside to offset a sweet front. Finish is quick and dark chocolaty. Iím not huge on porters or stout but this is good.

(12oz bottle). Pours dark brown with tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel. Taste is sweet/sour with light dry roasty bitterness. Light to medium bodied with thin/creamy texture. flat carbonation and smooth/smoky/roasty finish.

Saint Bridgetís Porter is a crystal clear, dark reddish brown ale with a thin, light khaki head that thins out to a film and holds steady to leave solid sheets of lacing. It has a very roasty aroma that leans toward coffee. Thereís a touch of sweet resin in the nose. Itís medium bodied and very smooth with a very dry finish. It leaves a slightly alkaline mouth feel. It has really good balance: a touch of sweetness, ample bitterness and lots of roasted flavor. Itís coffee-like. The aftertaste is bitter both like dark chocolate and something green. There is a slight hint of molasses. This is a very nice full flavored porter.

Garito793 (240) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Very dark bed with a little bit of red and a fantastic though quickly fading brown head. Aroma is not very strong, very malty though. Taste is a great balance of chocolate and coffee malts. Pretty lively carbonation, muted finish.

Nice chocolaty nose, a bit of roasted malt too. Appearance is nice, reddish hue of brown, some lacing. Palate is very roasted, a little thin, a bit bitter. Average porter.

Poured into Samuel Smiths Pint glass, Dark Ruby/Brown, faint, lasting tan head. Aroma was very mild, some burnt malt. As i sipped it, and it warmed, the flavors became more apparent (as most beers do ) The taste is pretty similar to the nose, but a little weaker and more of a bitter finish than expected. Good flavor just not quite what I was expecting. Toasty, Light malt. A nice Porter, but used to more flavorful Porters.
