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 Peterís unique bottle.

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

This is one of my favorites. It says honey on it and, guess what, it tastes of honey. I donít think this is a bad thing, but if youíre not looking for honey, then this isnít 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 Iím back in the states, I havenít 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 Peterís I have had.

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.

Really tastes like honey and stills keeping its porter featurs at the top. Nice toasted grains characteristics and the foam is just awesome.

Dobry i ciekawy porter. Intrygujący smak. Miůd wyczuwalny w zapachu, kwiatowe aromaty także w tle. W smaku Porterowo gożki. Finisz trochę rozgrzewający i gozki. W chwilę po przełknięciu wyczuwa się już tylko miůd. Ale jakby ten gryczany, bez natrętnej słodkości. Ciekawa interpretacja Portera

Bottle 500ml. Remarkably intense aroma of flowers and honey. Flavour has a sweet start, with a long-lasting bitter finish. Palate is oily, and medium-bodied. Brown colour, with a fizzy head.
