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 (38384) - 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.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a beautiful, clear mahogony with a warm, reddish hue. Small, off-white head. Aroma of hard roasted malt. Medium body with lightly sweet, roasted malty accents with a discreet ashy edge. Subdued bitterness in the finish. Courtesy of Santa (Immy). 160806

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2006
Bottle, July 2006. Deep red colour. Light roasty aroma. Full malt flavour. Smooth and creamy with powdery cocoa in evidence. Quite dry with a fairly light body. Very pleasant, although not the most muscular of porters, which denies it a higher rating for me (at least in this stout-like porter style). Still pretty good, without any obvious or major shortcomings.

Black pour in glass with average head. Noses is chocolate malts. Taste is pleasant and slightly dry. Rated 11/26/02

3.1
argo0 (14127) - 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.

3.7
Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2008
UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 Bottle from a dragon pack from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Chocolate brown pour with a medium head. Chocolatey roasted malt aroma. Taste is roasted malt, mocha with a bitterness at the end. Very nice porter.

3.9
Dogbrick (13763) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2003
This beer pours a dark but not quite opaque brown with a medium thin beige head. Thin and quick lacing. The aroma consists of roasted coffee, milk chocolate and malt. Medium-bodied with a nice blend of chocolate, malt, coffee and hops in the flavor, and there was a nice underlying roasted malt aftertaste throughout the glass. The finish is lightly bitter hops. Overall this is an enjoyable Porter, maybe not quite as good as Edmund Fitzgerald or Fuller's but solid all around.

3.6
bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a medium-sized brown head. Aroma of cocoa, roasted malt, and a hint of vinous. Flavor of roasted malt, hops, and chocolate.
