The quintessential British style brown porter. During the 1800s this full bodied style of ale made up 80% of the beer sold in England. Or most decorated beer and now the most decorated brown Porter in the history of the GABF.

Panzuriel's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
Panzuriel (2076) - 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.

kerenmk (4572) - 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.

JStax (5823) - 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.

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.

January 4th, 2014 - Also hailing from the South (and generously donated by a friend in TN) comes Blackstones 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 its nothing exceptional, and not unlike a lot of brown sweet beers youll find crowding shelves these days.

chinchill (4602) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2016 One 12 oz bottle from TN with no BB date notched on the label despite the presence of notch-date marks. Revised with another bottle in June 2016 with a BB date of July 2016. Served in a Belgian snifter. Pours light for style, with a clear red-brown body. The body remains light for style and clear even after I shake the few drops of sediment out of the bottle. Theres a decent head but it soon dies to a partial coat and thin ring. As the color suggests, this has less very dark roasted malts than many porters; nonetheless, both the aroma and flavor feature medium and medium-dark malts. The flavor is faintly bitter overall but the aroma is sweet. Feel: medium-light body and medium carbonation. Overall: a gentle, mild, easy drinking porter.
