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.

Lovely rich chocolate fudge cake aroma, not so huge, but very nice. Maybe it will express itself a bit more as it warms. Quite full in the palate, but the carbonation is quite harsh. Nice aged sharp autumn leaf retronasals and some spikey esters too, and the chocolate fudge cake crops up too later. All that and a nice full roast, and dry old hops too. Almost drying the mouth. All the old aspects live on in the finish. Lovely porter. St. Peters are back on form, it seems, which is welcome. Could happily have a second.

thewolf (11651) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle, bought at Cockneys, Aarhus. My 4,200th rating! Pours great, clear mahogany with a nice, medium, creamy, off-white head. Fine duration, light lacing. Soft sweet aroma, light roasted, raisins and a touch of burnt maltiness. Some wood and liquorice as well. Low carbonation, just a tad thinish. Flavour begind quite sweet with caramel, then develops nicely towards a more fruity and roasted malts base. Great, long, dry and roasted aftertaste.

bierkoning (11544) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2006
Coffee, licorice and brown sugar in both aroma and flavor. Sweetish, medium bodied. Bitter walnut aftertaste. Tasty, but the licorice character is somewhat exaggerated. Nevertheless a fine beer.

madsberg (11069) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2004
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Chocolate brown lasting head. Malt, chocolate and sweetness in the aroma. Pleasant and balanced. Flavour is filled with Valrhona chocolate, roastyness, light liqourice and fruit notes. Is creamy and well balanced. Has a chocolatebitterness in the end. This is a good one.
