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.

Saint Bridget’s 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. There’s a touch of sweet resin in the nose. It’s 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. It’s 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.

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.

Dark brown in color with a decent off-white head and some lacing. Very nice roast and caramel aroma. Flavor is roasted malt, caramel, toffee, and some mild hops. Body is medium and low carbonation.

Pours a silky black with a kakhi head. Smells like dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is smooth coffee mostly, with lots of smokey malts, some chocolate, and a sweet finish that excites your sweet tooth and makes you want more. I would score it higher if it had a fuler body, but once you get used to it, you notice its a bit on the watery side.

Dark ruby pour with light tan head fading fast. Nose of roasted malt, chocolate, some malt richness and evident american hop aroma. In the right mood it could slightly remind you of an IBA. The taste brings out more chocolate and some smooth coffee beans. some bitterness. Medium to medium-full body. low carbonation makes it an easy drinker. A nice porter.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Pours dark brown with a creamy, tan head. Malty aroma, with faint roast character. Flavor is sweet and malty, with molasses and some chocolate. Medium in body, perhaps a little thin, with average carbonation. Finished with mild roast and malty sweetness. Pretty good.

steelcitybrew (430) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Had the 12 oz bottle. Has a decent chocalate aroma though I could detect the molasses. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head.looks good. Has a real lite chocalate taste. Nuts and molasses are also there. The taste feels like they played it safe. Medium mouthfeel with a little warming ability. A decent brew that has the potential to be slot better

Poured black with a thin off-white head. Aroma of nuts and roasted malts. Flavors of vanilla and chocolate malts. Slightly nutty and creamy. A little on the light-bodied side. Finish is smooth and chocolaty. Pretty good.
