Sweet molasses nose that leads to a chocolate, roasted malt taste. Thick. Metallic quality, but overall well-balanced, smooth and enjoyable.

Incredible roasty nose that is much more articulate than most but difficult for me to translate. It doesnít lend itself easily to coffeee or cocoa analogies -- itís very purely roasty with room for some coal and tobacco edges. Creamy without overdoing it with nitro. Some bitter cocoa in the finish. There hops all voer this brew though I wouldnít guess the IBUs are greater than 30. Thankfully, no soft (oxidized) hopping spoils the beerís incredible brightness.

St. Peterís Cream Stout pours to a very dark chocolate / deep red-brown color that is virtually opaque to light. The head that is produced on a straight pour into a glass is very thin and brown in color. This beer has a very strong licorice (anise oil) scent in the nose. The mouthfeel is chalky, silty -- kind of like Turkish coffee, and the drink finishes with an oily, almost fishy taste.

I was a bit put off by this new English breweryís commercialism and marketing ploys (see their website for their story, here is one quote from it -íMy experience is in marketing and branding, not in brewing.í ). But this cream stout is excellent, it is dry for a cream stout, not too coffee/chocolatey, and has a nice appearance with an excellent brown head. Iíve had their Old World Porter also, and it is very good too (will be reviewing).

Dark orange brown color with minimal head. Aroma of caramel and special B malts. Malt sweetness throughout. Slight tar and molassas flavors. Very mouthcoating. Black malt bitter finish, with a lasting malt taste in the mouth. As it warms a slight metalic flavor comes out.

Roast coffee aroma with a very light hop nose. Roasted malt, chocolatey, mild hop flavor. Medium body, finish is more bitter than sweet, and low carbonation. Overall, very tasty.
