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.

Black, minimal head dissipated quickly. Dark coffee aroma, roasty chocolate taste, but also something lighter, hops and malts very well balanced. Palate would be perfect if a little thicker. On pure taste, one of the best I’ve had.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a little bit of lacing running nicely in a speckled sort of way around the sides of the glass. The smell had a really nice roasty slightly robust coffee to chocolate with a lightly bitter citrus hoppiness in the background. The taste was mildly bitter, roasty, robust and moderately sweet. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a pretty good porter that I would have again.

Hauntingly brown aroma. Nice head and lacing, creamy texture. Different than other porters, slightly bitter, good caramel flavor. Great local find!

The porter is St. George’s best year-round offering. It’s a fine porter too, all the classic characteristics. Everything in balance with this one. It can be blended into a fine black and tan as well.

Bottle at home, extra’d in a trade. Pour is dark brown, almost black with a medium brown head and great lacing. Big roasty, coffee, light vanilla, graham crackers, bread, leather, and black licorice in the aroma. Taste is bready, grassy, chewy leather, light cocoa and espresso, a touch earthy, and grassy with a light roasted finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not bad, but could use a little sweetness and a touch more body, though I do appreciate the sessionable characteristics. Not bad.
