Fuggles and Challenger hops plus a blend of four local barley malts create an aromatic, strong, dark chocolate cream stout with a satisfying bittersweet aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2004 Very good coffeish chocolate aroma. The taste and finish is a bit too thin and bitter.

The worst chocolate beer i’ve had. Not as good as Young’s and Bredaryds.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - JUN 25, 2002
Sweet molasses nose that leads to a chocolate, roasted malt taste. Thick. Metallic quality, but overall well-balanced, smooth and enjoyable.

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2002
Nose coffee and milkchocolaty. Black with little head. Tastes a little bit smokey but very light aftertaste. Nice light balanced beer!!

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 21, 2002
Incredible roasty nose that is much more articulate than most but difficult for me to translate. It doesn’t lend itself easily to coffeee or cocoa analogies -- it’s 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 wouldn’t guess the IBUs are greater than 30. Thankfully, no soft (oxidized) hopping spoils the beer’s incredible brightness.

St. Peter’s 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 brewery’s commercialism and marketing ploys (see their website for their story, here is one quote from it -’My experience is in marketing and branding, not in brewing.’ ). 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. I’ve had their Old World Porter also, and it is very good too (will be reviewing).

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2002
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.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2004 This is the only ENglish cream stout I’ve had and the best I’ve had.
