2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ The Rake. Pours ruby colour with small off-white head. Aroma is dominated by honey, some caramel, malts. Taste is much the same. A little too much honey for my liking although there are worse beers out there.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Strong sweet smell of honey. Small fizzy-creamy brown head, fast and fully diminishing; dark red body. Average duration, very bitter, the taste of honey is very present (too much for my taste). Light to medium body, dry texture, flat carbonation.
Not really my taste

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 Bottled 50cl. It pours a ruby brown beer with a small tanned head. The nose is extremely interesting with notes of berries, honey, mocha, smoke, home made caramel, tobacco and candy accompanied by a lot of vanilla. Surprisingly bitter taste. Wonderfully smoky, woody with candy, caramel, honey and vanilla showing up. Decent lacing. Slightly milky and leafy. Very smooth. Leafy finish with hints of coffee and licorice. Initial rating: 9/4/8/3/16. Rerate: Lots of candy, vanilla, honey and caramel in the nose. Wonderfully balanced, nicely bitter touch. Some wild strawberries, candy and vanilla showing up in the taste. Smoky. Very nice mouthfeel. Outstanding finish. 9/4/9/4/17 - 4.3

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle- Dark brown in colour, the aroma is predominantly of honey and it is rather appealing but also seems slightly too perfumed to be natural. The flavour is also of honey with some slight roasted notes. It is a shame because I think that the honey dominates this beer too much. Maybe they could do it with less or more natural honey and stop the aroma and taste of the honey from dominating quite so much as it detracts from what may have been quite a good porter!

Red brown beer with a small head. Taste and smell like artificial honey - like honey flavoured cheap candy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home ... Deep brown ... Lovely honey aroma with deep fruity malt... rich complex sweet malt with honey as well as dandylion and burdoch tones. hint of burnt toffee and treacle. oddly i aggree with Sim a odd hit of coconut. THis is probably the Best St Peters ive ever had, im not a big fan of there beers but this is hitting the spot.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Sim rate (bottle at Jerusalem Tavern): Aroma of candy corn...ironically consumed on Halloween night too when the smell of candy corn is expected. But I swear that’s exactly what it smells like. Honey, of course, but a delightfully rich dark aroma too as if chocolate was involved. Absolutely delightful! Dark ruby red/black colour with great head and lacing.Flavour of hard candy - toffee/chocolate/caramel. Rich, creamy, sweet, coconut. I absolutely love this beer. Slightly tart/bitter finish, but balances the sweetness perfectly.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, 50cl. The beer pours a dark brown color with a light head. The aroma is strong and unnatural honey. No honey i know smells like this beer. The flavor is very parfumed also with this honey flavor, that does not taste natural. The sweet taste of the honeylike flavor sticks in the mouth. Overall not a beer i want to taste again.

Luzern, 06. I didn’t like this one much. Has a huge honey nose, very dominating. The taste was overly sweet, with more honey and unpleasant bitterness. There are much better St. Peters beers to enjoy.
