Panzuriel's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
Panzuriel (2333) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2014
On Tap at Blackstone Restaurant and Brewery in Nashville TN. St Charles is a rich red brown brew with a nice head of small bubbles. Nose is sweet and hearty with roasted malt goodness. Taste is a bit of medium malt with good hop presence throughout. Body is a bit on the thin side, thinner than typical for the style. A good porter none the less.

Sampled at GABF 2017 in Denver, CO. Numerical rating only - did not take detailed notes.

oobawa (1662) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Good porter, or maybe a good-enough porter, touching all the bases for the style without really excelling at any of them. Chocolate notes mesh with a nice roasty backbone, slight cherry notes melding with java undertones and a semisweet cocoa finish. Texture is good, and the nose features strong dark roast java and chocolate. Not bad.

tapefuzz (767) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours dark, dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is nuts, cereal, and malt. Taste is vanilla, toast, roast, and light hazelnut. Lingering taste of sweet yeast. Light-medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slick mouthfeel.

4.2
Evolutionary (515) - Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle from beer of month club. Smells and tastes like a brown ale with a bit more smoke. Nut finish with cereal-hay notes up front. Smooth with hint of bitterness. Somewhat light body. Good and would do again.

3.9
shrubber85 (11582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle. Cherry, chocolate malt, and light straw aroma. Dark chestnut brown with minimal head. Moderately sweet light cherry, chocolate malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Okay body - light acidic finish. Fruity and pleasant. Think I have yet to disagree with Michael Jackson.

3.8
Patrickctenchi (6695) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle: Clear, dark cola-brown with a tan head. Cocoa, nutty aroma. Taste is roasty chocolate malt/cocoa, nuts, vanilla. Nice and robust in body and flavour.... A great Porter.

3.2
kerenmk (5058) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 3, 2016
On Tap at Blackstone Brewery, Nashville, TN, 4.5.16. Clear dark red. Malt, sweet aroma, hints of roastiness, hints of chocolate syrup. Roasty bitterness and a little sweet in the mouth. Rather light-bodied, soft fizz, long, sweet and roasty aroma.

3.2
JStax (7132) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2016
12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is a dark brown with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma has notes of roast, leather, and vanilla. The taste has a good bit of sweetness to it. Balanced a bit by the roast, but still leaning toward sweet pretty heavily. Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.3
chucklemation (1750) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Pours a mahogany color with a thin white head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, and earthy hops. Flavor is caramel, biscuit, and earthy hops. Has a light body. Easy drinker, but light on flavor.

2.8
GarrettB (1639) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 6, 2015
January 4th, 2014 - Also hailing from the South (and generously donated by a friend in TN) comes Blackstone’s Brewing St. Charles Porter, a calm, brown brew with little head, and all the scent of a generic winter warmer: malty with a touch of grape. The palate is flat with a decent flavor, finishing like Guinness, and debuting with some more of that grape sugar. But it’s nothing exceptional, and not unlike a lot of brown sweet beers you’ll find crowding shelves these days.
