4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The appearance is a thin tan creamy head with good lacing atop a super dark brown/red body. The aroma smells of dark black malts, cocoa powder, hints of dark berries and coffee. The palate is initially bitter and is a full mouthfeel with good carbonation. This is good. I could drink lots of this.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours jet black with a big brown head. Smells lightly smoky. Malty and creamy. Sweet.
Taste is lightly bitter. Milk chocolatey and smooth. Creamy and light roasted malt flavors. Full and smooth. I mean damn smooth, velvety smooth. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Damn good, damn drinkable.
A good English milk stout. A nice changeup from big bitter stouts. Always good to explore stouts of all varieties. Must check out other St. Peter’s brews...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 Bottled. a black beer which has a good tan head initially. The aroma is roasty, smoky and has hints of berry fruits. The taste is more like a regular stout than a sweet version as roasted malts appear to dominate. A tasty stout no doubt. Score 3.5
Subsequent rating scored 3.8. Average becomes 3.6

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark and delicious. Very coffee-like, but the chocolate and roasted flavors come through as well. Smooth and slightly bitter in the finish. Good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The best cream stout I’ve had. Dark, thick, lot’s of body, roast, coffee, hops and under it all a creaminess that isn’t sweat or ’brite’ but it coats the inside of you mouth like drinking cream from the carton. Very nice indeed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
