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.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Some nice gentle hops in the nose and in flavor, where they combine rather well with chocolate and roasted notes. This is a much softer, more delicate porter than I'm used to, but this brewer pulls it off terribly well. No sense that he has left anything out. Less can be more.

More stout than porter, it’s fairly typical of the style, but heavier on the bitter flavors. Go for a Taddy Porter instead.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 16, 2002
A very dark porter. Full malty chocolate nose. This is a nice low gravity rendition of the style. The palate is light to medium in body. Super dry and flavorful. A malty, but not overly roasty Porter. Very complex for its weight. A Porter that can be consumed pint after pint. A fine ale.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 17, 2002
Pours more like a cola than a beer, right down to the quickly dissipating light brown head. Still, it ends up pitch black. Aroma of sweet chocolate and strong mocha. Flavor starts quite chocolaty, and sweet. Mid tongue it shifts to bitter coffee, and finishes coffee/hop bitter. Slightly syrupy. Not a bad beer, but nothing special.

TheBeerGod (5174) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2002
Pitch black with coffee-ish or dark chocolate aroma. Tastes more bitter like coffee and has a bit too much hop bitterness to it. Went well with the seafood I was eating, however. Complimented it very well, indeed. Not a bad beer.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2002
Wow they got this one right. Very dark with a big foamy tan head. Aroma of dark roasted chocolate and burnt caramel, followed with just a hint of malt. The taste is wonderful starting fresh and clean with strong burnt chocolate flowing into a creamy malty tone and ending with a bittersweet snap that leaves you wanting to try it again. FFor a local brew that noone has heard of this one rocks.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Deep black with a head that looks like root beer, thick and sticky. Nose not too impressive, slightly woody, but not much there. Good burnt taste in the flavor, but it’s a bit too burnt--had the vague impression I was gnawing on a hunk of charred wood while drinking it. A bit of chocolate and tobacco undertones, but basically burnt. Still remains enjoyable, but doesn’t blow me away.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2002
Two words to describe this one: roasted malt and hops. A fine porter in a traditional fashion. Roasted malt and coffee tones in the aroma and up front. Some bittersweet chocolate and caramel in the middle with a good, intense hop punch to round out the finish. Beautiful deep brown color with a moderate and lasting head.

Nice coffee chocolate malts that are not overpowering but satisfying.Hops are present for good balance.

While porter is not my favorite style, I might have it more often after sampling this fine brew. The appearance is very dark, as a porter should be. Light barely got through even when held up to a halogen lamp. The aroma hints, not too subtly, of coffee. The flavor is wonderful...a toasty mochaccino of a beer. These guys are pretty new in the brewing biz, but if their porter is any indication, they’re fast learners. At around 1,000 barrels a year, try it if you can find it.
