3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Distinctive medicine style bottle. More amber in color than most porters. Head is a soapy tan with plenty of retention. Aroma is a delightful dark fruit. Plums and raisins abound and a hint of smoke is an undertone. Flavor is more tart than expected and plenty smoky. It is a sweet beer, though, and the malt takes some different turns. Interestingly, the malt flavor that is most common appears while licking the lips after a drink. Dark fruit can be found but it is underneath. Chocolate and coffee are also found. More of the dark fruit makes its way to the taste buds late in the glass. Mostly this porter has a smoky tart flavor and a little less hops would be an improvement. It is an interesting beer to rate in that I really like everything about it except the flavor. The flavor is good but after the other categories it is a disappointment.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Marrone scura con riflessi color caramello, limpida, schiuma beige chiara poco persistente.
Forte aroma di caffè tostato e meno marcata liquirizia, caramello, leggermente acida.
Stesse note palatali, leggero erbaceo, corpo medio, leggermente acquosa rispetto al corpo, non molto carbonata.
Retrolfatto erbaceo, mi ricorda l'oliva.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
As with every other St Peter’s beer, comes in a beautiful bottle (I’d rather say flask).
Dark brown, almost black, with ruby shades. Tan head.
Aroma is low but nice: coffee, liquorice.
Thin body. Soft and creamy, metallic on the tongue, bitter finish.

I wasn’t that impressed with this porter. Maybe because it’s an "Old-style" porter it is a different style? The flavors were a bit overwhelming, seemed a bit fruity to me. Not bad, just was a bit too much. The carbonation also seemed a bit low. Has a very nice appearance, just wan’t all that I expected for the price.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: April 18, 2015... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick.. OCCASION: a nightcap after celebrating bro-in-law Gil’s 40th anniversary... APPEARANCE: pitch black body as expected; creamy, substantial head that settles to a 1/2 inch; laces in swaths of brown--and the bottle scores points too... AROMA: definite toffee, burnt cereal malts and chocolate; peat and smoke elements as well... PALATE: a creamy, medium-bodied, mouth-filling porter that finishes with subtlety; mildly active... TASTE: luscious toasted cereal malts and possible Columbus hops create a full-bodied, sweet, semi-lactic taste; enough earthy qualities to create a warming experience... OVERALL: a strong, enjoyable porter that contains all expected aspects of the style; the ABV % is adequate but not noteworthy; St. Peter’s offers another style-appropriate bottle, with cola and peat stoking a working man’s drink...

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a tiny beige head. Nose of caramel and roasted malts. Taste is of caramel, coffee, roasted malts and oak. The finish is bitter with an alcoholic note. A nice and complex porter.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of cacao, dark fruit and roasted malts. Taste is more of the same with a bitter roasted coffee-like finish. Oily mouthfeel. Not bad but not as good as the cream stout.
