Fuggles and Challenger hops plus a blend of four local barley malts create an aromatic, strong, dark chocolate cream stout with a satisfying bittersweet aftertaste.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Pours very thick black with a small brown head that fades very very quickly. Strong dark roasted malt aroma with some pronounced dark chocolate sweetness. Taste is very much a dark chocolate coupled with molasses, with only a dash of the sweetness you’d expect. Very developed body, but not quite full bodied... it’s missing something A bit of surprise carbonation muddled with bittersweet is barely evident at the finish. Very good.

oh6gdx (21155) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2005
Bottled. Black colour, small brown head. Strong smoky and roasted malt in aroma along with dark chocolate. Chocolate, roast and some toffeeish notes in flavour, aftertaste is very smoky (smoke from wet burnt wood) and a bit hoppy.

average app for a stout...black with wispy white head...aroma is full of chocolate...coffee and toffee hints as well....flavor is a bit of a let-down, but not bad by any means....it is lacking the cream and nutty flavors that i have come to love in a cream stout....this reminds me more of a porter, not a cream stout....palate is okay, but somewhat watery...

TBone (13123) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2005
Bottled (BB 06/2006)
Almost opaque black color, small expresso head. Berry-like malty and chocolaty aroma. Medium to full bodied. Typical St Peter’s roasted malty flavor - chocolaty, smooth mouthfeel. Finish and aftertaste are hoppy with some roasted notes.

slabonator (29) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Had this bottled beer a few days ago. Nice packaging and good color. Not sure why the head is so minimal. Little to know carbonation. This beer has all the flavor of a great stout - chocolate, coffee and bittersweet. Not creamy, but good with some bitterness at the end.

stouby (3840) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2005
Bottle, at home. Dark with light brown head, fully diminishing, no lacings. Aroma moderate malty and hoppy (burnt, licorice, dark chocolate). Flavor moderate sweet and bitter, long duration. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Pours black with ruby highlights around the edges, has a thin tan head that settles to a thin ring, and doesn’t leave much lacing. Smell; has a bit of an earthy smell, with only hints of dark chocolate and coffee, There’s also a little bit of a soy sauce smell lingering in the background. Taste; slitghtly burned coffee, and the earthiness I noted in the smell comes out in the finish along with a little sweet chocolate. Mouthfeel was nicely thick and creamy, with vary little carbonation.

Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark with only a glimpse of light shining through leaving a tint of red. Greasy, brownish head. Rather heavy in alcohol for a stout, but doesn’t appear alcoholic - actually rather a bit watery. Very solid bitterness with a discreet underlying sweetness. 100203

blatz (138) - Palm Beach Gardens, FL, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2005
pretty good -- tan head of medium duration. shiny black body. smooth taste but not as much roasted flavor as I would have liked. undercarbed a tad too. lack of any discernable aftertaste. kinda tough to finish -- just didn’t have anything to pull me back. but it was decent enough -- I just doubt I’d ever buy it again -- Sam Adams Cream Stout is better. And frankly, I think my stout is too.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2005
50cL bottle. Small tan head on top of dark brown to black ale. Bitter, roasty aroma with some sweetness. The flavor is bitter, roasty, and coffee-like. Honestly it’s not that sweet, even after it warms but it is a delicious beer. Had some of their beers at the Jerusalem Tavern in London. Highly recommended bar if you are in the area. Thumbs up.
