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.

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 (3322) - 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 (1509) - 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 (140) - 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 (1000) - 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.

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.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with a half inch tan head that stayed around for a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and some caramel. It tastes like roasted malt, milk and bittersweet chocolate, caramel, cream, and a bit of burnt/charred malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a pretty good brew. One of my friends picked up a single bottle of this for me on a recent trip, and if it was available in my area I would certainly buy this beer again.

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
Aug 2009: Brown 12 oz bottle flown over to me by a Virginia based BA. Poured into a Westmalle chalice glass, one of my favourite tasting glasses. Deep, dark browny/red body with (sadly) a small wisp of a tan half head which soon turned into a thin collar around the glass. Intense dark chocolate aroma, then dry roasted coffee and toasted chocolate malts. The taste copied the smells, only a drier hint to everything and the hops coming in to add a bitterness that bit into my tongue and cheeks. Well carbonated and a good richness considering its alcohol content isn’t trying to rip your head off like some Porters attempt to do. All in all a very pleasant beer and glad it came my way.

bytemesis (5584) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 25, 2012
Poured dark brown with a full brown head that dissipated slowly. Minimal aroma; a bit of sweet maltiness. Slightly smoky, somewhat bland flavor, with a dry end. A bit oily in mouthfeel. This is an ok beer, but is extremely undistinctive and unmemorable. Actually less like a porter than the St. George American Brown Ale in my opinion.
