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.

On draft at Spacebar in Falls Church VA. Pours a deep cola brown with a tan head. Light chocolate nose. Flavors of cocoa nibs and roasted grain. Light to moderate mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

The porter is St. George’s best year-round offering. It’s a fine porter too, all the classic characteristics. Everything in balance with this one. It can be blended into a fine black and tan as well.

Bottle at home, extra’d in a trade. Pour is dark brown, almost black with a medium brown head and great lacing. Big roasty, coffee, light vanilla, graham crackers, bread, leather, and black licorice in the aroma. Taste is bready, grassy, chewy leather, light cocoa and espresso, a touch earthy, and grassy with a light roasted finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not bad, but could use a little sweetness and a touch more body, though I do appreciate the sessionable characteristics. Not bad.

barn0216 (423) - California, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Tap. Black color, tan head, lots of lacing. Very faint aroma, hints of milk chocolate? Hard to say. Flavor is much more pronounced. Reminiscent of a milk stout but dominated by roasty bitterness on the end.

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.

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 (3170) - 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.
