Saint Bridget’s Porter

Name – Saint Bridget’s Porter
Country – United States
Type – American Porter

Appearance – Poured a very dark brown, black more towards the middle, with some deep red highlights along the edges of the glass.  A big slightly tan head was gone quick but did leave some lacing.

Smell – The smell was pretty much just roasted malts.

Taste – A little more going on here.  You have the roasted malts along with some hints of coffee and chocolate as well.  I detected a very slight smokiness to it.

A very solid porter here.  Once again Great Divide comes through.  I’m going to go out on a limb here and say they are a really under-rated brewery.  Yes I know a lot of people like them but you don’t hear a lot about them like the other big names in craft beer.  Then continue to make really good to great beers.  Keep up the good work Great Divide and I’ll keep drinking them.

Overall Grade – A-

    Thanks for reminding me to go get some of this beer again. I’d forgotten about it. Really good and you are right about Great Divide being totally underrated.

    Great brewery. Hope to visit them if I go to GABF this year.

    from the newsletter I got from them today
    Recent Accolades
    Our friends at BeerAdvocate just put out their list of “All-Time Top Brewers” in the January edition of BeerAdvocate Magazine, and Great Divide landed in a very, very respectable 7th place, amongst some of the best breweries in the US and world. We’re pretty stoked about that! If you haven’t been to http://www.beeradvocate.comyet you really should check it out. Great Divide was also ranked 8th in 2010 “The Best Brewers in the World”!

    I think they are “underrated” in SoFL because they are distributed by MicroMan and not Fresh. They should have been at an event like the Jupiter Craft Beer Festival.

    You’re right Ed, it might just be our location. But they definitely deserve to be known more down here.
