Odd Porter which is more Ale-ish as most Porters. Still a good interesting beer. Allthough it could have a bit more body.

As with every other St Peterís beer, comes in a beautiful bottle (Iíd rather say flask).
Dark brown, almost black, with ruby shades. Tan head.
Aroma is low but nice: coffee, liquorice.
Thin body. Soft and creamy, metallic on the tongue, bitter finish.

I wasnít that impressed with this porter. Maybe because itís an "Old-style" porter it is a different style? The flavors were a bit overwhelming, seemed a bit fruity to me. Not bad, just was a bit too much. The carbonation also seemed a bit low. Has a very nice appearance, just wanít all that I expected for the price.

DATE TASTED: April 18, 2015... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick.. OCCASION: a nightcap after celebrating bro-in-law Gilís 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. Peterís offers another style-appropriate bottle, with cola and peat stoking a working manís drink...
