St. Charles Porter

Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, St. Charles Porter is made by the Blackstone Brewing Company.  It's got a respectable booze content of 5.8%.  It's billed as a brown porter, and pours a deep, dark brown colour with red highlights.  It has a fairly thin off-white head, and not a lot of carbonation.

St. Charles has a lovely aroma of toasted brown sugar.  The alcohol taste is well masked by a complex network of flavours. It has the sweetness of molasses and brown sugar with a slightly bitter kick on the back end.  It's a nice porter--robust flavour without being overpowering and not too sweet.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
