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.

initially aroma is of chocolate covered cherries, but dies down quite quickly and reminds one of Cheerios. It is a very dark beer allowing only a modest amount of light to penetrate. Heads is somewhat thin and off white. Appropriate for the style. in the mouth it is somewhat thin but very tastey. It tastes of piupe smoke and slightly sour fruits. very tasty and balanced. Overall, this is my favorite porter. I like this a great deal and look forward to drinking much more of it.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Dark brown pour into thick tan frothy and lingering creamy head which dissipates into heavy lacings on the glass. Balanced aroma of sweet chocolate and roasted coffee malts. Initial flavor of sweet malty and dark malty chocolate barley hoppiness which quickly fades to lingering smoked malty finish.

lumberjack (178) - Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Pours a very dark brown with a perfect tan colored thick head that sticks around. Slight aroma of roasted malt. Taste is somewhat bitter, with some chocolate and roasted malt notes. Very creamy mouthfeel. Nice coffee aftertaste. Very good porter overall.

Cybercat (3438) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Comes out of the tap a nearly opaque reddish sable with a decent head. Rich aroma is smoky with nutty and cinnamon hints and an undertone of chocolate. Mouth-filling flavor is chocolaty and smoky; it has nutty, spicy and malt hints, as well as a touch of hop bitterness. Lively and smooth texture leaves a tingly, slightly sweet, mocha aftertaste.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Pours a very dark chestnut brown color with dark ruby edges and a tan foamy head that settles into a nice lacing. Very roasty malt aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee and nut. Very smooth roasted malt flavor with coffee, chocolate, oatmeal, toffee, smoke and hops. Slightly hoppy up front giving way to creamy malt center and a dry, bitter and slightly smokey finish

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Deep brown with red highlights. Sizeable, creamy, light tan head. Good head retention and great lacing left behind. Aroma: Roasty nose with notes of earth, chocolate, plum, and coffee. Yum! Flavor: Light chocolate notes, earth, mineral, bitter roasted notes, a bit of coffee, and a good dose of malt sweetness. This is a great porter! Palate: Soft, Medium-low, carbonation with an oily, medium-rich mouthfeel. Long, roasty finish. Overall: A must try for porter fans. A great brew that is sure to please.

fromred2green (187) - , Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours near-black with a medium-brown head. Aroma of rich, bold coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is a very well-balanced mix of coffee and cocoa. Most porters have these characteristics, but very few strike the balance perfectly as this one does. Creamy mouthfeel and overall excellent beer.
