COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Hops: Challenger and Goldings.
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.

This porter is so easy drinking its ridiculous. Pours a light black with a surprisingly thin head. Taste is incredible. Sweet, creamy chocolate and molasses dominate and it goes down like a milkshake. Tremendous beer.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2007 This is an excellent porter, in contrast to the same brewery’s Golden Ale (not good). It has good body and richness with a nice palate, with a good dark appearance ad nice aroma. The flavour is very nice, rich and chocolaty without being too chocolaty and one-sinded. There is a nice, though mild, complexity and smokiness and it is extremely drinkable. It also has good foam and lace

A delicious, aged, smoky porter. Great looking bottle. Classy. Not overtly sweet. Suprisingly smooth. Perfectly bitter!

Solid. Pours with a rich, creamy, foamy head and lots of lingering lace. Complex nose of dark malts, dark sugars, a little hop, yeast, and divinity! Been a while since I las had it. Too bad for me. Anyway, flavors in a big body of the aroma but much more all the way around.

Dobry Porter, tradycyjny, palony, dośc mocno jak na portera, lekka słodycz (chyba lukrecja) sie wyczuwa. Wspaniale sie uzupelniaja te dwa przeciwstawne smaki. Zapach palonego slodu unosil sie nad piana, ktora byla mocna i trala i zbina drobnoziarnista. Kolor machoniowo-brunatny

This old style porter is superb. It has a medium head and a very dark color. The caramelized malt is rich and subtly sweet and it is perfectly balanced with the good hops from England. The aftertaste is clean. I love this porter.

Roasty, creamy and complex. This beer, which I purchased mostly on the basis of it's interesting bottle, reminded me what's great about porter that I had forgotten drinking and brewing mostly pale ales and pilsners for a while. Hints of chocolate, coffee and vanilla, but none of these tastes were overpowering. In fact, they were subtle enough to keep me sipping, trying to get a handle on the elusive things going on in my mouth. I wanted another when I was done. This porter made me smile.

Arguably my favorite porter to date, St. Peter’s comes in a subtly tinted bottle, so the pour is a surprising dark mahogany instead of deep brown. Roasted aromas give way to chocolatey taste and a very smooth mouthfeel. A beer to be savored in small sips.

Appearance: Pours a clear dark mahogany. Tan head, two fingers, with good retention. Smell: Roasted malt, dark chocolate, yeast and lemony hops. Taste: Rich malt flavour with cocoa and coffee notes. Light hops are just right to balance the flavour; some caramel sweetness up front. Dry, earthy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, medium carbonation. Initial creaminess gives way to a mildly bitter bite. Drinkability: High. Well-structured, lots of complexity, very solid example of the style.
