No head at all. Clear dark red-brown colour. Pleasant, intense, but not too sweet vanilla-honey aroma. Wonderful honey taste. The vanilla aroma reappears in the astounding palate, this time lightly roasty. The perfect example of a scented beer.

500 ml bottle. The bottle is a replica of an original bottle from the early 1800s. Pours clear very dark brown, almost black, with a tiny head. Sweet honey aroma. Roasty malt taste with strong honey notes. Slightly bitter honey palate.

I think I could drink a LOT of this stuff! It poured a dark dark dark amber, almost brown, colour along with a modest, foamy tan head which produced some very nice lacing. Aroma-wise, the delightful scent of honey hits you right away. As for the taste, again with the honey and it really makes this a pleasure to drink. Some coffee appears in the after taste as an added bonus. Finally, it comes in the pretty St Peter’s unique bottle.

Pours dark, has strong smell of honey and tastes like a regular porter in the beginning but has honey aftertaste.

Embrouille (2803) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2008
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

Overwhelming smell of honey. Almost like mead. Great dark appearance. Lovely honey and chocolate tasting with a subtle bitter aftertaste. Yummy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of my favorites. It says honey on it and, guess what, it tastes of honey. I don’t think this is a bad thing, but if you’re not looking for honey, then this isn’t your glass of beer. Assuming you do, it has a nice feel on the palate, with a richness that compliments the honey flavor nicely. Had this one at the Jerusalem Tavern in Farringdon whose bartender suggested that I try it slightly cooler for a greater emphasis on the porter-ness. Now that I’m back in the states, I haven’t been able to taste it at a warmer temperature, which she claimed would accentuate the honey more. Oh well. Still, a great beer and one that I would love to find in the states.

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.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 23, 2010
Nice black body with thin white head. Medium bodied. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste was nicely balanced between bitter and sweet. Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate and caramel were all present. More noticeable than this was the honey. It was absolutely delicious! The honey went so well with the porter. One of my favourite beers.
