3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. A deep ruby colour in the glass with a creamy but fading one-finger, light tan head on the pour. Dried fruits, lightly dry berries, gently roasted malts and spice on the aroma. Raisin, prune, choccy & roasted malts with a subtle fruity tang in the mid-palate. Medium body, crisp and medium carbonation. A moderately lingering bittersweet finish. Well balanced and structured nicely on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 500ml bottle. Almost black with relatively rapidly fading cream head leaving no lacing. Descrete aroma of sweet black bread, syrup, some dark dried fruits and maybe some chocolate in the background. Taste dominated by roasted malts and black bread, almost no bitterness but good British malt character. Light creamy smooth mouthfeel with very low carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black colored with weakish tan head. Aroma is basically a chocolate cake with nuts and spices. Taste is sweet chocolate, nuts, winter spice mix, with a bitter dry cocoa finish. Medium bodied but hot cocoa thick. Not a St. Peters fan but this one is very nice!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 50 CL. Right out of the bottle, you get a string raisin and nutty aroma, but, when poured into a glass, the beer smells very basic, almost lageresque. Fortunately, the hops come in waves. First, you get some black malts and raisins. When it arms up - it blossoms! You get some sweet and tart fruit freshness and some nuts. The taste starts as a dry stout - roast barley and moderate bitter finish. Later, the beer gets milder and the roast goes away. You also get some sweet and sour fruity notes. A hint of alcohol. Nice spicy hop finish.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a lightbrown head. Quite too unbalanced taste in my opinion; lots of sweetness with surprisingly much taste of alcohol hitting through. Some roasty tones.A disappointment for me.
