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.

jsmerig (1143) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Pours a very dark near black with a nice moderate tan head. Aroma is yeasty with sour notes. Taste is creamy thick and sweet but not overly. Balanced with mild hops and a little of roasted malt bitterness. Taste is much better than the aroma.

MarkoNm (236) - SLOVENIA - DEC 15, 2013
Pours with a dark brown almost black color and a very small off-color head. There’s virtually no bubbles present. The aroma is very gentle, some malts and some alcohol aroma. The taste is contrary to expectations not very strong, pleasantly creamy with quite some roastiness and some little coffee. Due to lack of carbo it has a slightly stale feel, but it’s very drinkable and enjoyable.

A very nice stout. Thick on the tongue with lots of bittersweet chocolate and some bready backing.

UncleKorm (644) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle poured a dark brown hue w/ a large tan head diminishing to a nice cap w/ lacing. Big bready malty licorice aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are bread, dark chocolate, malt, and a moderate roast. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and a light warmth in the finish.

Slubgob (172) - West Hartford, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle into goblet. Opaque black with lingering creamy mocha head. Good malt aroma. In the mouth, rich bold and dark like a stout should be. chocolate notes predominate, and the finish lifts with some malt and light hops. Very impressed foot out of a bottle!

Bottle. Pours almost completely black. Opaque, with some red highlights. Persisting cappucino-colored head. Aroma: strong presence of brisith malts, with hints of fresh roast and certain tartiness (lactose?). Taste: More roast, hints of a bit overcooked toast and fudge. And at the heart of it all - the robust and incomparable british malt. Finish is smooth and creamy, with a touches of nice tartiness and bitterness. I, personally, would’ve preferred some more complexity. Overall: Pleasant beer. Easily one of the better St.Peters propositions.

mmahut (621) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 28, 2013
Pours in black body with creamy tan head, quickly evading. Aroma is licorice, roasty, chocolate and burn caramel. Taste is sweet with harsh background bitterness. Body is medium with high carbonation, oily.

dbhenry (87) - El Paso, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2013
A very good stout, it is very dark brown with a small head. The medium body has a complex malt taste and a subtle creaminess. The pronounced hop flavors prevent this from being too cloying on the palate. I really like the green bottle.

danielecamo (398) - ITALY - NOV 25, 2013
In bottiglia. COlore nero, schiuma poco presente e poco persistente. Arom adi caffè, tostato evidente, nota di ciliegia sotto spirito. Al palato scorre veloce, corpo snello, carbonazione quasi nulla, ancora tostato, torrefato, caffè e liquoroso. Stout pericolosa per il corpo snello ma il grado alccolico elevato.

hopbel (19) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
Roggebrood besmeerd met een met guinness gevulde bonbon. Fijne alcolhol, lekker doordrinkbaar. De nasmaak van een bittere stoffige zolder met een frisse prik. Zeer lekker bier !
