COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Hops: Challenger and Goldings.
This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2004
Dark with no head. Aroma is roasted malts and smoke. Flavour is salty, smokey and quite unpleasent. Salt is for nuts, not beer.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 21, 2004
Soy soy soy sauce, salty and agressive. Hints of candy in the nose and taste but the sodium to me is just harsh. It does pour nicely and the mouth is medium and slippery. Not bad, just not something that I particularly enjoyed.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2004
Black body with a small head. Heavy aroma of malt, liquorice, hops and smoke. Bittersweet malty and hoppy flavor dominated by smoke and English liquorice with some anise in the background. Quite full-bodied and the best I have tasted from St. Peters so far!

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2004 Very interesting beer. Medium brown red colour with a thin tan coloured head. Aroma is dark chocolate and bread with a roasted character as well. Lots of things happening flavour wise, with chocolate, coffee, rye bread, and a toasty character all jumbled in there somewhere. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

RichardGretton (4407) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2004
Typical porter appearance with a well roasted malty aroma, and a very dry roasted/coffee flavour. Overall a very good porter.

obxdude10 (2111) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
Reddish tint to an almost black color, very thin off-white head, faint chocolate aroma, pretty thin in the body as well, unimpressive, watery finish, not that great of a porter

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2004
Sweet chocolatey aroma, little head. Dark reddish brown. Nice malts, mellow roasted flavour. Fruity undertones. Nice.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2004
Good stuff. Dark, bit red. Nose is roasty, and a bit sweet. Nice roasts, somewhat smoky and woody, finishes nicely bitter. Good hops at end.

Lubiere (11014) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2004
Black but clear beer, with a thin head. Bitter chocolate, slightly roasted aroma. Very bitter, roasted malts with some sourness, a good dose of hops, with not much sweetness. medium dry body.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
Clear dark ruby body and a soapy tan head. Aroma of dark fruits and smoke. Roasty malt and coffee flavor and nice late hoppiness. Good, lingering aftertaste. This is another pleasant surprise from St. Peter's. Very fresh beer in a cool dark, vintage bottle based on an 18th century antique from the great state of New Jersey. Has a British brewery finally learned how to export beer?
