COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Porter weaves a complex tapestry of flavors in a black, ruby colored ale. A rich malt base, typical of St. George Ales, results in caramel and chocolate tones, classically balanced with English bittering and aromatic hops.

Deep brown almost black pour with brown head. Very light chocolate aroma. Taste I roasty malt, plenty of malt flavors but not too sweet. Dark chocolate finish. Nice.

"Interesting brew... Definitely more English than American porter. Caramel, roast and chocolate aroma. Similar flavor with some coffee aspects as well, and quite earthy. Its also gotta ash thing going on that is simultaneously intriguing and off putting.Thanks to Thomassova for some VA beer."

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a little bit of lacing running nicely in a speckled sort of way around the sides of the glass. The smell had a really nice roasty slightly robust coffee to chocolate with a lightly bitter citrus hoppiness in the background. The taste was mildly bitter, roasty, robust and moderately sweet. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a pretty good porter that I would have again.

Hauntingly brown aroma. Nice head and lacing, creamy texture. Different than other porters, slightly bitter, good caramel flavor. Great local find!
