A fairly pleasant stout if you get a good bottle. After striking out first time around, I took the risk and picked up a second bottle of this and my decision was vindicated. Lovely aroma of creamy chocolate with a touch of roasted coffee. On tasting it drops a little, with a bit of a minerally watery flavour coming through. That taste was the same as what dominated the dodgy bottle, so obviously its a fault of some description but I have no idea what. Anyway, it was fairly pleasant drinking if not a little on the sweet side. Would have it again but coming in a pint plus sized bottled Id probably want to share it.

Bottle - pours black with a tan head. Sulphuroc aroma. First taste is really sour, then there is a light roast flavour. Not much to say about this one!

Explosive head out of the bottle not a good start. Unbalanced sourness predominates over a bad char and spice base. Unrefined to say the least. Maybe a bad bottle.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle (640ml). Poured opaque with a huge, tanned, fluffy head which filled the glass, but with time it settled to a average sized head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma had unpleasant sulfuric notes (like all the other bottled St Peters brews I have sampled) with strong notes of acidic dark grapes, tart blackberries and hints of roasted chocolate malts hiding underneath the mess. Flavor was offensive with strong acidic notes, sour dark grapes, tart blackberries, notes of burnt plastic, roasted chocolate malts thats are petty much non existent and a dry metallic finish. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, dry texture, watery mouthfeel and a bad finish. All the St Peters beers I have had (all bottled) have been an utter waste of money, judging from some other ratings I must have picked up 3 bad batches from 3 different brews, although I still dont think I would bother buying any of them again.

Nice roasted malt nose, but mouth is thin and sour, though backed up with solid roastiness. Unbalanced and mediocre at best.

Good to see St Peters products turning up in bottles. Their stuff seems to be a bit hit and miss but this sweetish stout/porter is more the former than the latter. It took a bit of encouragement to summon a short, reluctant head but it hung around well. The aroma is all soft mocha coffee or perhaps coffee ice cream. Quite a few sugars in there - in fact it summons images of a leaner cousin to Redoaks Belgian Choc Stout, in smell at least. If I have a criticism, its that its a bit thin - like its going to lack guts. Medium-bodied but with a nice thick finish. Soft chocolate malt flavours, sweet and very gentle. Classic souring finish but with very low bitterness for the style. Milk chocolate with some vanilla essence. Very much at the dessert end of the stout scale. Very easy drinking - if all stouts tasted like this, they might even find a mass market. The kind of stout you could take home to meet your parents. Polite and well rounded. Wont rub anyone up the wrong way. (640ml bottle from Liquor on Parade, Kingsford. 5% abv)

On tap at The Union. Burnt sugarcane, licorice. Good kick in the first sip, but drifted away from there, with a bit of a dregsy finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 25, 2006
On tap at the pumphouse brewery. Pours a dark reddish brown with a medium ivory colored head. Has a great roasted chocolate aroma. Flavor is of berries, roasted and chocolate malts and seems to be quite milky. The finish is long with a substantial chocolate residual. Low in hops.

pretty odd stuff. dunno if you'd call it a stout, had no creaminess, no texture to speak of. dark purple with detergent froth. first pint was exciting - plenty of burnt bitterness, roof-of-the-mouth malt, nice and warm. the 2nd and 3rd pints weren't as satisfying, each beer was flatter than the one previous and the flavour less complex - just a hit of burnt stale hops and it was gone. anywaze, interesting and unlike any beer tasted previously

another one of the one-off cask ales at the suit-infested nags. there's no way this qualifies as a stout, but whatever it is (porter? old ale?) it's not that bad anyway. just not a stout. clear darkish red with no head (of course), just a dribble of white foam round the side. flavours are fairly fresh and inyerface, but don't come together very well - heaps of coffeeish chocolate malt, round Goldings dryhopped flavour, and fairly powerful hoppy (as opposed to roasty) bitterness. in fact there's no discernible roastiness at all which is weird for a "stout". oily, vanilla and licorice tinged yeasty finish. not a lot of guts in the malt department either.
