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.

Barely see through the reddish brown, slowly fading tan head, some lingering throughout. Amazing aroma of pumpernickel drizzled in honey. The flavor is roasty, but not overdone, some hops, but not overdone. Full bodied, but not too heavy. Just amazing balance and subtlety displayed here. Very nice.

Deep brown color. Malty caramel aroma, like cooked caramel that's just bordering on too well done. Flavor has hops in it, but also the malty richness of a porter. Has a bit of a kick. Could be slightly better balanced, but I like it.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2003
This beer rocks! Pours a very dark, crystal clear ruby hue. Small, khaki-colored, creamy head. Mostly diminishing with no lacing. Milk chocolate and malt (Whoppers!) in the nose. Whispers of vanilla and light alcohol as well. The flavor is of dark chocolate and darkly roasted coffee beans up front. Perfectly balanced with a pleasantly bitter and lightly tart hop addition on the backside. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, tongue-numbingly tangy, bitter and dry finish. Complex, actually! World Class Porter! Very heavy for a low gravity brew! Underrated!

First impression was the great color. Follow that with interesting aromas and diverse flavors. It resulted in a really good, well made porter. I would certainly recommend it.

There is indeed nothing missing here..this is outstandingly well put-together. It is easy to overdo the chocolate notes in beers of this style, IMO. Here there’s harsher roast components balancing, and the hop bitterness arrives right on time. Toda raba, urbn.

Roasted chocolate flavors with a good hop finish. I’ll have to re-rate this one sometime after i drink it when i am more sober.

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 (11870) - 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.
