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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours dark brown, but pretty clear for a porter, and with a light beige, thin head. Nose mostly of chocolate malts. Nice, but not very exciting. Taste shows more chocolate, but better balanced with roast and hops. Thin palate. Nice, but not exiting.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a pretty dark brown/ruby red color, with a frothy beige head. Aroma is of roasted malt, burnt grains, chocolate and hops. The flavor of the malt feels more toatsted than roasted. I also get the burnt grains, chocolate, hops and some faint coffee. The body is in the low en of medium with a silky smooth and slightly dry mouthfeel. Overall an good and really drinkable Porter.

BREWMUSKCLES (2300) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2010
IT IS REALLY just as described with adequate hop and chocolate malts the brew is sweetish and filling yet refreshing. soothing and comforting yet still beery enough. it has no hint of alcohol.

thicksuds (437) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2010
solid porter, great pour, nice chocolate color and foamy, strong toffee malt flavor, tastes toasted and roasted, nice choice for fall or winter, tall, frothy, and full bodied.

ReneKolding76 (53) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2010
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. It’s a good porter, but not as robust as the lable claims.

Frank (3015) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2010
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 it’s purpose reasonably well but just doesn’t quite make it to the level of the best porters.

derekbrown (105) - Greenville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Pretty good caramel porter. Not as "robust" as advertised, and compared to some of my favorite porters (Duck Rabbit, Founders), it doesn’t stack up well, but it’s still a solid beer. Definitely would drink again.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2010
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. I’m not huge on porters or stout but this is good.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2010
(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.
