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.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2006
A deep amber beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with a quite strong berry presence. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of fruits, some what stored, leading to a dry end. Not very Porterish, but OK.

argo0 (11452) - 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.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, 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!
