4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Very nice aroma of Milk Chocolate, Roasted Malt and Coffee., with a hint of cherry. Poured a dark cola brown, with a tan, medium sized foamy head that quickly became a thin cap. Left nice lacing on the pint glass. Taste was very nice! Started sweet with a milk chocolate, then a robust coffee that had a nice touch of bitter roasted malt with dark chocolate that ended with milk chocolate. A nice medium body that was slighly sticky and slightly creamy. Average carbonation. The finish was a long wonderful slighly bitter that ended with sweet with chocolate. A very unique Porter that is smooth and a pleasure to drink. I really like it and will add it to my favorite rotation. I love stouts and porters but this is one of the better Porters Iíve tried in a while! A Great job by Great Divide.

Bottle pours black with a nice tan head. Head retention is minimal and shows a little lacing in the glass. Smells of coffee and chocolate waft from the glass as I smell it. Tastes wonderful - like mostly chocolate with a nice smooth finish. I really enjoyed this one.

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.

I really enjoy porters and this is one of the best Iíve tried. It has a sweet aroma and a dark chocolate color. There is absolutely nothing bitter ab out this beer how a true porter should be.

Another excellent dark beer selection from Colorado! Great Divide had won my affection for their particular style of dark beers. I donít know if its the cold mountain weather hops or what, but this beer is amazing! It pours dark, with heavy dark bubbles running all through it. The head smells like a combination of Coca Cola and roasted walnuts, which gives you absolutely NO idea what the body tastes like! Its got the bubblyness of an English porter straight from the tap, and the dark rich toffee and coffee flavors of the other Great Divide choices. Excellent beer!

A very good porter with a cool label to boot. My bottle has a picture of a woman on it (Brigid - Iím guessing). I wonder if this is an older or newer label?

Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry and GregClow- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Dark brown with red hues. Strong roasted coffee aroma. Flavour is very robust - wow. Lots of coffee. Roasted notes, not so much sour, but still a nice soft taste and balance that screamed porter at me. Just a hint of smokiness. A true session ale and one of the best porters I have ever had. Love the little write up on the bottle too.

A great example of the porter style. Dark, rich, great malt representation, light touch of hops, but not sweet. Medium/heavy bodied. Low carbonation. Fair strength. A delight to drink!

Bottled 2nd week of January; I assume this is 2007. Nearly opaque brown-black with a medium and mostly lasting head. Aroma of chocolate pine. Flavor has smoked pine hop with cocoa and molasses, raisins, some scorched brown sugar and toasted marshmallow. Wow! Finish is excellent: tingly-bitter herb hops balancing all the malt complexity. Palate is medium-heavy and tingly with both hops and carbonation. Almost a stout with some extra hops; very nice! Way underrated.
