Draft at the Jerusalem Tavern. The best stout I have tried! Nice and dark, proper head, coffee and molasses. Try it if you can find it!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours black with a short creamy offwhite head. Aromas of light chocolate and coffee hover above the English Pint. Flavor is a nice blend of chocolate, coffee, and a bit of smoke.. a little bit of molasses there as well. Mostly sweet throughout but a little bitter hop presence at the finish. Palate is lighter for a stout and a tad on the watery side. Very drinkable though.

Bottled. Itís dark brown with a mior white head. The aroma is that of burnt hops and chocolate.The flavour consists of a smoky sensation (hops?)and it has strong hints of chocolate. It has a sweet after taste with a minor bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours opaque black w/ no head. Potent dusty aroma of coffee and chocolate...smoked almonds appear...thick, oily, and slightly boozy first impression. Quite sweet, w/ only some hints at bitterness in the finish. Very chocolate flavor that doesnít leave room for much else to come in...maybe slightly cheesey in the finish (hops?) along with some smoke character. Quite flat on the carbonation. Molasses character as well...which I donít like. Overall it is enjoyable, but I have no reason to drink this over Bellís much more excellant Kalamazoo stout. Bellís still sets the benchmark for stouts in my mind. Goofy bottle doesnít do much for me either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little wattery the sweet restes uneasy ond the mouthfeel had a little too much separation of the flavors. hen it came around a little as it wrmed and made an ok showing as a light stout... leaning towards a light oatmeal.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer tickles the nose with an almond aroma that has hints of coffee lingering in the background. It is a black liquid with a thick brown head that fades fast. This thin bitter solution has the taste of smoke and coffee combined and proceeds to get sweeter with every taste.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a nice heavy stout, though not really that creamy. The sweetness is there, but not too much, easily making this the best St peters Iíve had.
