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.

Bottle. Rich aroma of chocolate, coffee, some malt caramel. Dark brown, clear, pours with a decent dark tan head. Medium body, creamy, carbonation is lively for a porter, finish is a bitter and good. Very positive

phaleslu (7670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2011
12 oz. bottle shared by Coopers Kid- thanks, Andy! Pours a deep, dark brown with amber highlights and a small beige ring for a head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, banana bread, and toasted caramel. The flavor also has the unexpected banana bread- which doesnít by any means overwhelm- along with chocolate, toasted brown sugar, mild coffee, and some dark fruits. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, rich mouthfeel. Almost drinks like an imperial porter. I enjoyed this a lot and expect Andy to bring me some more from these guys!

BelgianBeerGal (3434) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Fresh 12oz bottle from the brewery. Nice looking, dark brown pour and a bubbly brown head. Nice lacing. Sweet chocolate in the aroma. Nice flavor too but maybe a little thin. The chocolate doesnít appear in the flavor until the finish.

arminjewell (8674) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Pours dark brownish black with nice lacing tan head. Aroma has notes of chocolate, roast, some earth, slight burnt caramel and toast notes. Taste is fairly nice with a relatively full body for the ABV, nice sweet toffee and caramel, some bitter roast and coffee, some slight cocoa powder, touch of earth and grass, finishing dry and bitter. Nice beer, very easy drinking yet still full flavored.

DavoleBomb (1522) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Poured into a white wine glass (thatís all that was available) at The Cheese Shop in Williamsburg. A: 3.5 S: 3.0 T: 3.5 M: 3.0 D: 3.0 Dark brown, nearly black. Just a touch of light brown head. Average retention and little lacing. Dry, lightly roasty nose. Taste has a good bit graininess as well, with more neutral malt sweetness than I was expecting, but still rather dry overall. Roasty toastiness, but not a ton of flavor overall. Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could use more body. Good creaminess for how light it is. Better than some of their other beers, but still no treat.

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Pours a deep brown color with a light tan head. Has a light chocolate aroma. Nice chocolate flavor with a smooth balanced bitter finish. Medium body. A nice beer.

I didnít really enjoy this porter at all. I thought it poured nice but was very watery with a little bit of roasted flavor.

Capa (2316) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Dark with a light tan head. Lightly roasted aroma, some molasses, nutty, chocolate, light spicy earth notes. Thin body. Nice chocolatey malt, a touch of roast, some caramel, and mild nutty notes. Finish has a touch of bittersweet malt. Top-notch porter.

mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2011
12oz bottle, poured into snifter glass, great frothy tan head, a bit of oakiness to the aroma, great spider lacing, interesting booziness for only a 5% beer. The mouthfeel does not do this beer justice at all, really watery, really weak, not much, a bit of roastiness, but not much else. Too bad.

ben4321 (4839) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from jcos, 3/13/11

Aroma: It has a roasty and smokey aroma, malt heavy, some chocolate and caramel notes
Appearance: It pours into the glass a dark brown color with a small beige head, light lace
Flavor: This one has a nice smooth roasted porter flavor, burnt, chocolate, and smoke notes too
Palate: The mouthfeel is well-rounded, medium (plus) bodied, with a fairly smooth and clean finish to it
Overall Impression: Thanks Justin! (Iím getting use to writing that since you hooked me up with so many beers!) Anyway, I was relatively impressed with this one. A solid example of the style that does what it sets out to do.
