faroeviking (10683) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 29, 2007
Bottle. Deep black colour with a short off-white ehad. Aroma of very roasty malts and bitter coffee. Bit flat mouthfeel. The flavour has burnt caramel, roasty malts almost burned malts though not so powerful, roasty coffee, dark chocolate with some sweetness. The finish is mildly burned with a soft bitterness.

Smells like soy sauce, kind of looks like it too. Very sweet and barely any carbonation. Strong malt flavor and some smokiness. Very smooth.

Poobah (414) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Chocolate nose with hints of coffee. Opaque with very little head. Plenty of chocolate with significant smokiness detectable in the aftertaste. The intro is malty and smooth followed by a bitter finish. Some carbonation with a very smooth mouthfeel and a noticeable amount of alcohol. Good cold weather beer.

bhensonb (14891) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Delightful aroma - seems a mix of chocolate and coffee. Nearly black color, but a halogen lamp shows beautiful ruby hilites. No head developed. Flavor starts with chocolate, and moves on to roasted malt and coffee. The hop rises to balance out the other flavors. Amazingly slightly sweet and simultaneously dry. Mouthfeel is more than medium. Very smooth, dare we say creamy? The finish finally seems to be roasted malt balanced by noticeable hoppy bitterness. Excellent.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2007
From a shaped, narrow neck 500 ml. olive coloured bottle with a blurb and freshness date on the back label. Poured a ruby hued blackish brown with a small foamy, bubbly topped head that settled into a fine bubbly lacing. Aromas of roasted coffee and chocolate, musty and a light fruitiness, a bit citrusy. Moderate carbonation and a softly crisp, slick, smooth full bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of roasted coffee and sweet milky chocolate with a touch of charcoal, a musty earthiness, a subtle fruitiness, the hops are pretty tamed, more brisk than bitter, and a sweet milky chocolate and coffee malty finish. A nice milk stout from St. Peters, easy, smooth drinkability, well worth trying.

hayduke (5138) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 19, 2007
This is the last of the four St. Peters offerings sold for $3.85 at my local Northcoast Coop here in Eureka, CA. It poured a nice dark red (almost black) that left a big juicy light tan head that settled quickly and left chucks of lacing on the side of the glass. Attractive pour. Nose of burnt malts. Very rich creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of dark malts, coffee, chocolate, and fruit. Finish was nicely bitter. Excellent brew, and a worthy stout.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2007
Very dark brown. Intense roasted malt aroma. Sweet malt taste with a hint of sourness, cocoa, and an ashy bitter finish. A thoroughly sound stout.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Classic understated English stout. Not on par with Young, Sam Smith stouts but very good and the most beautiful brew bottle I have found to data. The first bottle I put cleaned and put in the window. Circa 1870 (?) flask they say.
