3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask pour at Jerusalem Tavern, London. Nice rustic-looking pour, a ruddy reddish-brown with a thinnish carbonation. Nose of soft biscuity malts on the nose, a trace of wood, a dollop of hops. Body is nicely full, substantial. A bit more of a bitterness emerges in the taste, but there’s certainly a greater emphasis on nutella-type flavors than anything else. Solid stuff, a winning quaffer.

(2) Not worth trying. Why? It was just not good. It was sour and unbalanced - maybe a bottle gone bad?

Cask at the Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon. Dark brown with a light tan head. Sweet/sour malty scent. Light and sweet taste, borne forward with sesame, bamboo and chocolate malt flavours. Inconsequential but it’s a mild so I’m ok with that. Certainly enjoyable for what it is.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours a very dark red-brown, almost black, with a small, light brown head. The typical St Peters aroma of bread and yeast, but with strong malt too (chocolate, molasses, some coffee.) Dry and smooth in the mouth with coffee and a fleeting sweetness in the middle. Good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 50 CL. Dark brown with ruby highlights, small beige head. Strong malty and caramel aroma with slight hints of spicy hops. The body is light, drinkable and almost devoid of carbonation. Dark caramel with enough roast and spicy hops to balance the sweetness and give this simple beer enough complexity. Well done.

Beautiful 500ml US-style medicine bottle, St. Peters sampler D&M. For a 3,7% ale, very rich with roasted, chocolate and woody malt subtleties paired with spicy berry and orchard hops. Satisfying textured mouthfeel for the abv as well, whilst going down easy like café frappé. Hints of treacle, hinting at savoury flavours, then mostly mild indeed chocolate syrup, noisette. - Did not realise "Mild" was a dark style, but if these are supposed to be sessionable porters like this, I’d be happy to consider an on-site crash course in this underappreciated traditional style.
