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.

Has an aroma of coffee and pours a rich black with a tan head. A flavor of roasted coffee comes through and a finishes with a creaminess.

Smells of alcohol barley and coffee. Looks pitch black with a small tan head. Tastes creamy and coffee like with a pronounced barley taste to it that becomes the main part in the aftertaste. A nice cream stout that does a body good!

Sampler from bottle at <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/orland-par Orland Parh, First test of one of these little flasky bottles. I’d agree, it’s more of a sweet stout than a creamy one: still has a big roasty malt flavor and more than a hint of alcohol. Then some slight creaminess comes out in the wash. In this case, the beer lives up to the unusual packaging.

A great suprise for the price! Pours an absolute pitch black, no light shines through. Aroma is great. Chocolate and yeast dominate. Flavor is sweet chocolate malts, dark chocolate, a nutty moment, tobacco, dark fruit (dates)yeast, and a nice dry, bitter aftertaste. $4 for a 24oz bottle, definitely one of the best bargains in beer.

Very dark with fairly dark, thin head. Smells of dark burnt chocolate and tastes the same. Smooth with some bitterness but no bad aftertaste at all. I commented to my wife that it was mini-guiness.

Pours dark, with a medium-dark head. Smells of roasted malt with a slight hint of alcohol. In the mouth it’s a pretty ordinary stout in both feel and flavor, with roasted malt flavor and some hints of chocolate. I wouldn’t call this a sweet stout; it’s pretty bitter and roasty, and not very sweet/smooth/full. I probably wouldn’t go for this one again.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Strongest taste is a dark roasted chocolate overtone with malty and nutty coffee coming through. Drinks well and very palatable - sweet without being too much so. Good after dinner beer.

This is a very nice stout. Tempered somewhat by some offnotes and a slightly alcholic taste. But it is rich and roasty and nicely complex. Plus the bottle is very cool. ;)

St. Peters Cream Stout. 10 Aug 05. Bottle. Very, very dark, with only a glimmer of light seeping through. Nice creamy-coffee colored 3/4" head (kind of a surprise), with decent lacing. Pleasant roastiness, coffee and cinnamon. Clearly a notch or two above what I expected, having had several of the other St. Peters brews. This creamy stout lives up to its name, and is one of the rare bottled Brits that survive its journey. Just short of greatness. Thanks, Gel!

Pour is opaque black with thin tan head...smell is roasty with lots of chocolate and some coffee...taste is roasty with cocoa all over the place...some butter flavor too, which was a little weird...finish is nice and mildly bitter...nice...
