4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: April 18, 2015... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick.. OCCASION: a nightcap after celebrating bro-in-law Gil’s 40th anniversary... APPEARANCE: pitch black body as expected; creamy, substantial head that settles to a 1/2 inch; laces in swaths of brown--and the bottle scores points too... AROMA: definite toffee, burnt cereal malts and chocolate; peat and smoke elements as well... PALATE: a creamy, medium-bodied, mouth-filling porter that finishes with subtlety; mildly active... TASTE: luscious toasted cereal malts and possible Columbus hops create a full-bodied, sweet, semi-lactic taste; enough earthy qualities to create a warming experience... OVERALL: a strong, enjoyable porter that contains all expected aspects of the style; the ABV % is adequate but not noteworthy; St. Peter’s offers another style-appropriate bottle, with cola and peat stoking a working man’s drink...

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a tiny beige head. Nose of caramel and roasted malts. Taste is of caramel, coffee, roasted malts and oak. The finish is bitter with an alcoholic note. A nice and complex porter.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of cacao, dark fruit and roasted malts. Taste is more of the same with a bitter roasted coffee-like finish. Oily mouthfeel. Not bad but not as good as the cream stout.
