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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
