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.

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 (4652) - 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 (2270) - 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 (12935) - 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?

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2004
Dark brown with a moderate beige head that disappears leaving behind a film and some half decent lacing. Aroma of roasty coffee with something swirling beneath it that I couldn't pull out. Flavour is similar with a roasty coffee like bitterness dominating. Body is a tad thin but flavourful. Would fare better if I was more inclined towards coffee.

zen (41) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Pours a decent size head, nice ocean water-like lace all the way to the bottom. Very,very subdued nose with a trace of raisin and date. Tastes of dates, bits of chocolate and a bit of hop finish accompanied by bits of roasted malt and burnt charcoal pieces. Nice full medium body. One of the finest porters I've had, perfect carbonation and just as complex as any other I've tried. One of the finer examples of the style.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2004
St. Peter’s Old Style Porter – 3.85 The beer after vamoosing from the unique green bottle pours a deep incarnadine color, the head mediocre in size, the texture creamy and the Irish lace pronounced on the sides of the glass. Nose is a tad earthy, somewhat sweet, fresh and crisp, seems to be a hint of peat? Start is lightly sweet, nice malt profile; the top is fair to middling in its feel to the palate. Finish has a nice mild acidity, the hops pleasing in their spiciness, quite dry and a nice mild English Porter, one worth a sample at least.
