zach8270 (3502) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 1, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [500 ml. flask-bottle] Dark black pour with a thin tan head. Smells like a cold cup of coffee with a fair amount of cream in it. The taste is very smooth and creamy. Begins with a flavor of chocolate that goes to a middle of coffee and cream with a very nice and sweet chocolaty finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Very smooth.

This is not too bad but a bit bitter. It is semi creamy and has a rich full body. I liked it better then average but no where near as good as Murphy’s or Guiness.

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2005 Thin black body, almost no head. No lacing on the glass. Aroma is very chocolatey. It’s very smooth drinking and it’s chocolate and there’s some licorice and coffee hints in there as well. Shoulda been called Chocolate Stout. Whatever.

carlitos99 (184) - The Big Apple, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Rich dark pour with just a touch of a head. Strong mocha coffee and dark chocolate flavors followed by a toasty bittersweet finish. Not the best stout I have ever had but very enjoyable on a rainy afternoon.

Bottle. Chocolate aroma with some coffee flavours. The usual flavours you’d get in a stout. But not exciting.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Pours black with a very thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Low-medium carbonation. Nice roasty, coffee flavor up front and a little hop bitterness on the back end. Well balanced, smooth, and very drinkable.

UnsofistaCat (237) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Slight rancid smell that died away fast. Dark, dark black. No head. First taste of midnight coffee. Where’s the cream? Very bitter. Kind of tastes like the oil pan after a change by a sweaty mechanic. Salty and roasted. Lastly, it must be noted that I accidently got this beer too cold

Eructoblaster (3053) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
Perfectly opaque black body topped with a thin beige bubbly head that fades quickly. Strong roasted coffee aroma with chocolate and malty hints. Taste is also quite robust but pretty well balanced. Oily texture and strong flavors of malt, roasted coffee, brown sugar and dark chocolate. Alcohol remains very well hidden from the attack to the very end of its nice and lasting hoppy finish. As for every beer from St. Peter’s I’ve been tasting, this is a very good example of its style.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Bottle poured an oily-headed black mosnstrosity with absolutely no transparency, save a hint of blood-red reflection in the glass when held to a bright light. The initial aroma was that of a pocketful of change, but became more intriguing as it warmed with hints of coffee, prune, port wine and alcohol. Flavor was bitter/sour... like strong, overcooked coffee. Metallic tang on the roof of my mouth stayed a very long time. I think I would enjoy this if I was an introspective deep-thinker... or if I was very angry.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2005
Black as night with a small beige head. Coffee, soy sauce, tangy. Very light carbonation, salty, coffee with a hop follow. Odd that this is a "sweet stout" but has a salty taste.
