3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes in a flask bottle which is quite unique. Pours a wonderfully clear and clean mahoganey with virtually no head, but what is there is tan and lasts only seconds. The aroma is a sweet dark chocolate that makes your mouth think it is about to get into some fine dark and smooth piece of chocolate. Coffee notes follow and then a bit of hop tickles your nose. Initial flavor is a silky smooth roasted chocolate malt flavor that finishes mildly hoppy. A full-bodied palate and silky mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
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.
