Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours a pitch black/dark brown color, no head. Aroma of lactose, a bit of chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is smooth, lots of cream, roasted coffee, a little chocolate, some fruit undertones. Thanks to 1FastSTI for sharing!

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2007 Smells more burnt than American stouts. Sweetness is definitely there, but a strong bitter finish stops it well short of being cloying. Mouth feel is thin to me so that is a negative mark. Flavors increase as it warms up so definitely wait to get it at the right temperature. Very nice stout.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Pours a nice deep dark colo w/ a good tan head that laces pretty well. Strong roasted malt aroma a touch smoked. Palate is pretty light but has a mdeium body to it. Flavor is a big roasted malt a tiny bit smoky in the finish hints of light semisweet chocolate. Thanks to blake for this one.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2005
The appearance is a thin tan creamy head with good lacing atop a super dark brown/red body. The aroma smells of dark black malts, cocoa powder, hints of dark berries and coffee. The palate is initially bitter and is a full mouthfeel with good carbonation. This is good. I could drink lots of this.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours jet black with a big brown head. Smells lightly smoky. Malty and creamy. Sweet. Taste is lightly bitter. Milk chocolatey and smooth. Creamy and light roasted malt flavors. Full and smooth. I mean damn smooth, velvety smooth. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Damn good, damn drinkable. A good English milk stout. A nice changeup from big bitter stouts. Always good to explore stouts of all varieties. Must check out other St. Peters brews...

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2005
Aroma of malty water. Nice flask style bottle. Black body with tan head. Had a creamy roasted flavor that was easy on the palate. Could of been a little richer in flavor.. Had a little roasted aftertaste to it.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 Bottled. a black beer which has a good tan head initially. The aroma is roasty, smoky and has hints of berry fruits. The taste is more like a regular stout than a sweet version as roasted malts appear to dominate. A tasty stout no doubt. Score 3.5
Subsequent rating scored 3.8. Average becomes 3.6

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2005
Very dark and delicious. Very coffee-like, but the chocolate and roasted flavors come through as well. Smooth and slightly bitter in the finish. Good stuff.
