3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

Pours dark black with a thin fading brown head. Smells of burnt chocolate and alcohol. The flavor is rich in coffee, smoke and has hints of chocolate. It is very smooth and was quite enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks blankboy! Strong roasted sweet aroma. Black with thin tan head. Nice roasted sweet taste. Lots of lingering roasted/bitter flavours. Just a solid unspectacular well-made stout, the lingering flavours might put people off but I really enjoyed them.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & jerc. Pours black with an average size light-brown head. Looks very nice.! Aroma of light hops, roasted malt and dark chocolate. Flavour of hops, espresso and chocolate was nice and creamy and quite tasty. Very enjoyable!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (500ml) - shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc at tupalev’s domicile - provided by blankboy. Poured a nice, motor oily ruby-black with an average light-brown diminishing head. Aromas of bitter chocolate, minerals, table cream, coffee - overtones of turned sod and leaves, not sweet at all to my nose. Taste was very like the aroma, overall bitter, but not really strong-hop bitter. A satisfying creamy mouthfeel, with a dark roasty bitter linger. Nicely complex ... a little harsh and nowhere near full-bodied enough, but I liked it and would try it again.
