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.

Emeister84 (936) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Caramel, mild cocoa, and nutty aromas. Clear brown-black with a fading, beige head. Off-dry with some sweet malty flavors, and nice roasty tones. Light-medium bodied with low carbonation, smooth, and finishes with some lingering nutty and chocolatey flavors.

I asked for a Founders Porter but had to settle for the St. George. I’m glad I gave it a go.

Pours black with a lightly tan fine head. Roasty, chocolate flavor. Mouthfeel is moderate. Chocolate and coffee flavors are there. Pretty good Porter.

pitch black with good and deep aroma of chocolate. vibrant light brown foam that is cola like and adds that dimension to the flavor. chocolate with some bitter and roasted to it. it has a sweetness to the finish. some silk to the body.

mcox90 (1538) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 18, 2012
12 oz bottle courtesy of RABinVA. Pours a standard dark brown with an inch of creamy tan head. Good head retention with some lazy rings of lace. Roasty, chocalate aroma with a nice sweetness. Sweet flavor with touches of cream and vanilla. Light sweetness in the mouth with a medium body. Very enjoyable.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Pours clear dark brown with a tall. sticky, light tan head. Very soft malt aroma. Lightly sweet with some roast malts, but a lot less than what a good porter should have in my opinion. More like a Schwarzbier.

RABinCO (1214) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head that fades fast. Big toasty malt aroma with a hit of sweetness. Taste is a bit of chocolate, caramel, and coffee with toasted malt back that lingers on the tongue.

CJfromPhilly (138) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Pours from the 12 oz. bottle a very dark, cola-ish reddish brown with a large rocky beige head. Too dark to tell what kind of bubble action is occurring in the darkness. Aroma is of roasted, smoky malt. 1st sip brings to mind dark unsweetened chocolate and black coffee. Mouthfeel is on the light side. Overall, a tasty, refreshing Porter that I would not mind having again.

TheHopster (791) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2012
On draft in "Germany" within Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. Very dark brown/black in complexion with slightly watery body. Not bad, but I was expecting a more flavorful porter.

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Opaque dark mahogany with a rediculously foamy tan head. Medium body with very high carbonation.

Aroma: black roasted malt, sugury crystal malt, astringent harsh grassy character, dark chocolate.

Taste: Malt sweetness, roasted malt, grainy astringency.

Either a minor infection or a serious water chemistry problem. My bet is on the first -it’s undrinkable.
