4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz. Opaque with a lasting quarter-inch of creamy foam. Smells of earthy chocolate, caramel, light apple and sour cream. Flavor is a great blend of all, plus some ash and char on the finish to dry the big malt. Medium-heavy body is smoothly carbonated, lightly prickly on the tongue and drinkably chewy. Nice soapy lacing. Great American homage to the traditional British style.

Tap. Black color, tan head, lots of lacing. Very faint aroma, hints of milk chocolate? Hard to say. Flavor is much more pronounced. Reminiscent of a milk stout but dominated by roasty bitterness on the end.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel, mild cocoa, and nutty aromas. Clear brown with a fading, beige head. Off-dry with some sweet malty flavors. Light-medium bodied with low carbonation, smooth, and finishes with some lingering nutty and chocolatey flavors.

I asked for a Founders Porter but had to settle for the St. George. Iím glad I gave it a go.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
