Bottled. Deep brown beer with a small brown head. Aroma is mostly english licorice, with the usual stout-aromas too. Flavor adds peat and cigar-box. Creamy mouthfeel with roasted finish. (051104) Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2005
I was surprised how good this stout was, considering I usually dont like sweet stouts, and everything else from St Peters has been less than average for me. Pours a nice black (a bit on the light side) small head, leaves a thin oily film. Aroma is similar to Mackesons- sweet, light roast and some chocolate. Sweet smooth flavor with a nice nutty light roasted aftertaste. gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 Pours black. Aroma of cocoa and vanilla. Creamy taste with strong flavors of cocoa and vanilla. An excellent stout. henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - NOV 25, 2005
The bottle poured a virtually black beverage with almost no head at all but what was there was tan. There was almost no lacing as well. The aroma was a complex mixture of caramel and dark chocolate malt with some light earthy yeast and a hint of plum in the background. The body was quite full with a soft carbonation and a slightly dry texture. The flavor started off slightly bitter and was quite consistent throughout. The finish was long and had a nice light alcohol warmth to it. ezra456 (39) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 18, 2005
beautiful bottle. poured a beautiful dark brown/mahogany color. very little head, sadly. exquisite oatmeal/vanilla nose. tastes of roasted barely, oatmeal, and a little vanilla in the aftertaste. well put together. overall, a great purchase for anyone who enjoys a flavorful stout.

500ml bottle courtesy of Walleye in a recent trade. wonderful aroma of toasted oatmeal. dark brown with a ruby edge but virtually no head. flavor is of roasty, toasty caramel malt, oatmeal, hints of molasses and chocolate and a very nice hop bitterness. very enjoyable stout, thanks Jim. artfink (28) - I’m everywhere Fokker!, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2005
A nice cream stout. the bottle is pretty cool, almost like a hair tonic or somthing.....cool anyways. pours a nice head that stays with it. nice whifts of roasted,sweetened coffee and cocoa lead to a nice roasty,sweet creamy flavor. nice choco hints added and finishe with light bitterness on the tongue. overall, not a bad stout. I’m not a huge fan of really sweet stouts. this one is sweet but not overly like some sweeter stouts can be. I’ve had sweeter oatmeal stouts than this....so it’s not that bad!!! kgustaf (17) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2005
I drank this beer after a piece of very dark chocolate. Starts with a floral aroma I cannot place, very dark color. I was unable to draw up a big head. It is very smooth, and I do taste the chocolate, but that could be suggestive association. Mild malty flavor with a sweetness that matches the aroma. Very little aftertaste, perhaps slightly bitter. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle from Once Upon a Vine North on 05/01/2011. Dark black body with a medium frothy light brown head. Sweet fruit, caramel, and molasses aroma. Sweet smokey and fruity flavor with roast and chocolate. Medium body with moderately low carbonation. 6/5/6/3/12 3.0
On 11/10/2005. Small dark brown head, an aroma that resembles a scottish ale. Strong taste of coffee. 7/4/5/4/12 - 3.2 ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle at The Irish Bistro. Pours black with a nice toffee/chocolate head. Aroma of malts, toffee, and a whole bunch of molasses. Cocoa and molasses dominate tha taste. Very enjoyable.
