Pours black with ruby highlights around the edges, has a thin tan head that settles to a thin ring, and doesn’t leave much lacing. Smell; has a bit of an earthy smell, with only hints of dark chocolate and coffee, There’s also a little bit of a soy sauce smell lingering in the background. Taste; slitghtly burned coffee, and the earthiness I noted in the smell comes out in the finish along with a little sweet chocolate. Mouthfeel was nicely thick and creamy, with vary little carbonation.

(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark with only a glimpse of light shining through leaving a tint of red. Greasy, brownish head. Rather heavy in alcohol for a stout, but doesn’t appear alcoholic - actually rather a bit watery. Very solid bitterness with a discreet underlying sweetness. 100203

pretty good -- tan head of medium duration. shiny black body. smooth taste but not as much roasted flavor as I would have liked. undercarbed a tad too. lack of any discernable aftertaste. kinda tough to finish -- just didn’t have anything to pull me back. but it was decent enough -- I just doubt I’d ever buy it again -- Sam Adams Cream Stout is better. And frankly, I think my stout is too.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2005
50cL bottle. Small tan head on top of dark brown to black ale. Bitter, roasty aroma with some sweetness. The flavor is bitter, roasty, and coffee-like. Honestly it’s not that sweet, even after it warms but it is a delicious beer. Had some of their beers at the Jerusalem Tavern in London. Highly recommended bar if you are in the area. Thumbs up.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2005
Bottled. Deep brown beer with a small brown head. Aroma is mostly english licorice, with the usual stout-aromas too. Flavor adds peat and cigar-box. Creamy mouthfeel with roasted finish. (051104)

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2005
I was surprised how good this stout was, considering I usually dont like sweet stouts, and everything else from St Peters has been less than average for me. Pours a nice black (a bit on the light side) small head, leaves a thin oily film. Aroma is similar to Mackesons- sweet, light roast and some chocolate. Sweet smooth flavor with a nice nutty light roasted aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 Pours black. Aroma of cocoa and vanilla. Creamy taste with strong flavors of cocoa and vanilla. An excellent stout.

The bottle poured a virtually black beverage with almost no head at all but what was there was tan. There was almost no lacing as well. The aroma was a complex mixture of caramel and dark chocolate malt with some light earthy yeast and a hint of plum in the background. The body was quite full with a soft carbonation and a slightly dry texture. The flavor started off slightly bitter and was quite consistent throughout. The finish was long and had a nice light alcohol warmth to it.

beautiful bottle. poured a beautiful dark brown/mahogany color. very little head, sadly. exquisite oatmeal/vanilla nose. tastes of roasted barely, oatmeal, and a little vanilla in the aftertaste. well put together. overall, a great purchase for anyone who enjoys a flavorful stout.

500ml bottle courtesy of Walleye in a recent trade. wonderful aroma of toasted oatmeal. dark brown with a ruby edge but virtually no head. flavor is of roasty, toasty caramel malt, oatmeal, hints of molasses and chocolate and a very nice hop bitterness. very enjoyable stout, thanks Jim.
