PurplePieMan (6) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2005 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2005 ’Cute’ bottle. Pours almost opaque with a light brown head. A nice presentation... The bouquet is that of a bale of hay, or even a freshly opened bag of Meow-Mix (dry cat food) though it seems subdued somehow. The mouthfeel was smooth and crisp -satisfying but not really creamy. I taste coffee, cocoa, and cucumbers. I wanted more texture and complexity. Maybe it was a little too cold. I would rather spend my money on a chocolate stout (or imperial). This is an easy drinking stout. A good entry point if you are new to stouts or if you enjoy Guinness. Otherwise, grab a Rogue Chocolate Stout.

asheft (2678) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2005
[bottle] Black, no fizz--speckled, oily top. Roasty sherry sweet dark malt creamy aroma. Sweet and bitter, roasty and a little winey flavour. Bitterness is a blend of hops and dark malts. Clean finish. Low carbonation and smooth with a medium body. Very nice flavoured beer, if a bit mild.

slimweebs (163) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Thick, creamy, chocolately flavor. Strong chocolate aroma. Tastes like a bittersweet chocolate chip, combined with a creamy/roasty combination of malt. Very low hop profile, which is what keeps this beer from being rated higher. Overall, a nice beer. Would buy again. Cool bottle too.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2005 this beer got an extra point overall for the 6.5%. A very good example of a sweet stout. If you like guiness - you’ll love this. Stronger, much more complex palate with a great smooth bitter Lasting fifnish with a 6.5% kick . very good.

DCJack (182) - Alabama, USA - OCT 20, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 nice bottle, like handblown glass, simple and austere, but elegant, nice colors and label graphics. Of course you can’t judge a tart by the makeup. Extremely dark, almost black, intriguing color, I think of the wine-dark sea. Rich bold mellow flavor, extremely smooth yet strong. Sits in the glass with authority, regal and luxurious. Toasy aroma, the smell of a wood fire on a cold winter dusk. Sybaritic mouth feel, thorough and fulfilling. A truly excellent beer.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - OCT 19, 2005
pretty good- poured black with a tan head. Light could not penatrate the thick body of the beer. dark chocolate on the aroma with hints of coffee. Taste was really creamy with a strong chocolate precense sweet for the most part but finished with a mild roasted coffee sense.

ivan9856 (189) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 The signature ½ liter St. Peter’s bottle is as charming and traditional as the captivating dark brown stout that pours from it. There is a dark tan, long-lasting head that leaves excellent lacing. The nose is chocolate malt, with just a hint of coffee. Palate entry brings the underlying sweetness front and center—but it is not overpowering. Full-bodied and exceedingly smooth, this stout quickly develops the mid-palate flavors suggested by the aroma: velvety, milk-chocolate goodness with enough coffee-like tartness and hops to even out the malt sugars. There is also a pleasant and lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Best served slightly below room temperature.

restless7 (104) - Lenexa, Kansas, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Although this stout is fairly highly rated, I didn’t find it to be my favorite among stouts. Almost non-existant head but immediately noticed a chocolate, coffee, burnt flavor. Very creamy but not enough "bite" for my taste. Non-bitter.

Tonitones (13) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Chocolate overload! Smooth and creamy. Dark brown with a thin white head. No bitterness at all. The most unique bottle I have seen in a while. No question that this is a top notch stout.
