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.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Light brown in color, small creamy light tan head that doesn’t last, aroma of dark roasted coffee and malts. Light body, thin and watery mouthfeel. Smokey coffee and chocolate flavors, with a light smokey burnt bitterness in the finish, some what watery, very drinkable.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Very thin mouthfeel for a porter. Nice coffee, cocoa, hazelnut taste to it, just is far from having a proper thickness, feels thinner then water. Nice tan head, pretty, but thin.

heemer77 (5194) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2004
The bottle is the best thing about this lame brew. There is a deep roasted coffee and some roast beef in the aroma. A slight scum of head on top with lots of carbonation making it look like a cola. The tate is coffee with off flavors of raisin and roast beef. A very thin mouthfeel. Unimpressive overall.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 Opaque black - looks like a cola without the heavy carbonation. Almost headless. Smell is full yet subtle, some toasted chocolate in the nose. Taste is very nice - burnt malt mixed with a chocolaty sweetness. Light carbonation, substantial but not thick. Nicely balanced, good flavour with a light, nice bitter aftertaste. A very well done porter. Full marks.

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.
