3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark, brown color. Aroma more delicate than the Old-Style Porter: malt, roasted malt, liquorice, phenol, caramel. A strong roasted malt character, with caramel and liquorice, just softer than the Old-Style Porter, IMO the final is a bit bolder.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very black porter with a small creamy head and a cough mixture like aroma. Bitter and creamy tasting flavour. Overall a very different type of porter than normal, the cough mixture aroma has a very negative effect on the overall impression of the beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Deep red brown, poor off white head and moderate condition. Sweet coffee and malt with a hint of smoke in the aroma. Lots of roast barley and sweet chocolate in the mouth laced with some licorice. Finish is chalky with an intense roast barley dry bitterness. Slightly more balanced than the Old Style porter from the same brewer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask conditioned, Jerusalem Tavern. Dark, chocolate brown with a creamy brown head. Tremendous amount of floral aroma, lots of musk as well, and then as if it's not enough lots more floral. Tastes soapy, sudsy with the flavour all arriving the split second you drink it. It’s all upfront with nothing at the end but a mediocre bitter finish, no malt at all. This beer had lots of flavour, I just didn’t like any of it. The Old Style Porter they do is a lot better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
sweet honey-like nose, dark hue with an off-white head, very rich, honey taste which also has malts and a toasted sensation, creamy and silky, malt aftertaste, I really enjoyed this to begin with but later on into the bottle I started to find the sweetness too cloying and have bumped down the rating.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with an off-white foam. This has chocolate and coffee body with a roasted character. The liquorice aftertaste is long and pleasant. There is also a touch of saltiness. Great with chocolate and the best St Peter’s I have had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m not a fan of the over priced St Peter’s beers, but this is a delicious stout. Smooth, but not like an oatmeal stout, there’s still enough edges to explore and provide interest. Dry, but with a gentle, and complex enough honey and fruit sweetness to provide good balance. Lots of rooty and chocolate bitterness - the chocolate returning again and again in different strengths, yet gentle enough to be quite refreshing. A satisfying, flavoursome brew that provides a comforting thrill. A little gem. And the bottle gets my vote for the best beer bottle on the market.
