3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Very nice. Pouring dark, dark brown and syrup-like with a meager brown head, this has strong roasted/burnt malt aromas along with those of bittersweet chocolate. Smooth in the mouth, yet carrying a bit of a bitter hop snap, this is chocolate and coffee flavored, all well roasted, with just a hint of smoke and some sweet caramel near the end. Finshes on a dry coffee note. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from a trip my wife took to San Jose California. Tasted in an english pint glass. Appearance is thick and viscous, very very opaque, syrupy with little or no head. Stands up like an imperial stout.
Aroma is sweet - alcohol on the nose is evident. Hints of burnt caramel and licorice. Reminds me slightly of the Mill St. coffee porter in scent. Flavour is fairly well balanced. Not too sweet or bitter. Starts off with creamy taste, like coffee and cream. The slightly burnt/bitter elements then begin to form in the flavour, roasted malt and sweet caramalization. Pretty good stuff.

Good in a simple way. Creamy smooth with sweet flavor with notes of chocolate and coffee. Not a whole lot here, but that isn’t always a bad thing.

Bottle. Pours a near opaque black with thick bubbly tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of toffee, brown sugar and rich coffee. Taste is of toffee and roasted malts. Somewhat creamy. A little dry but still very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma for a sweet stout of toffee and chocolate. Almost no head created from the pour. Has a black coffee color, but i would say its more of a dark brown. Flavor is of roasted malts, milk chocolate, and macadamia nuts(those nuts from Hawaii). Rather dry and bitter, but sweet and delicious.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My other two St. Peter’s beers were skunked...here goes!
Pours opaque black with a very thin brown head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Nose is toffee/caramel, sweet fruit, chocolate. Very sweet as soon as it hits your tongue, with toffee predominating along with chocolate and coffee, a nutty flavor that is either walnuts or pecans, and nice creamy mouthfeel, mocha at the end. Long mildly bitter finish. Good stuff.

Thin tan head. Body is black. The arom ais roasted malts with some walnuts and bread. Very rich aroma. The taste has deep dark chocolate and some raosted nuts. Also some dark bread crust. This has hints of some deep currants or prunes. Very nicely done. A drinkable brew in a style I normally dont’ care much for. The best this brewer has to offer.
