Rich mahogony color, malty nose...coffee undertones. Rich satisfying stout Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Bottled 50cl. It pours a black beer with a beautiful fluffy dark beige head. The nose is of eucalyptus, port, dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, cane sugar with hints of cherries and oats. Slightly woody. Full, sweet aromas which deliver quite a punch. The taste is salty with coffee, raisins, dark chocolate and caramel showing up. Lots of oats. Some molasses appearing. Full bodied. The finish is salty with coffee accompanied by milky, woody elements. Coastie (14) - Carrollton, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2007
I enjoyed this beer. Poured a beautiful black with a nice thick tan head that stayed throughout. I was disappointed by the lack of aroma though. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle: Dark black, light tan head, nice lacing. Nose of light and chewy roast, metallic with light cocoa and marshmallow. The flavor is thick with chocolate and roast, chewy full body, bright but light in astringency. Nice mocha, yummy tail. joe1510 (501) - Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2008
I got this as an extra from Kempleton, thanks Andrew. I haven’t drank anything from St.Peter’s in awhile and just noticed they have round bottles now instead of those medecine bottles they used to use. I thought those medecine bottles were cool as hell, I’m a little disappointed.
St. Peter’s Cream Stout enters the glass the darkest of brown with chestnut highlights when backlit. A dense creamy ecru head grew to two fingers on the pour. It eventually fell to a thick one finger cap and left great chunky lace on its way down. An impressive looking stout for sure.
The smell is full of roasted grains and a lactic quality. The roastiness far outweighs the lactic. There’s not a whole lot of complexity here but there is some complimentary bakers chocolate sprinkled on top of the roastiness.
There’s a heavy hand of roasted grainines throughout. There’s a lactic whisper mid-palate and quickly after some bittersweet chocolate. While the flavor is good there just seems to be a little more roasty bitterness than I’d like. A touch more sweetness for better balance would be more my style.
Medium body with a touch of graininess. While I think the mouthfeel could use a touch more body the present mouthfeel makes the drinkability slightly higher.
The drinkability is actually pretty good on this beer. Nothing seems overbearing and in good balance. The body keeps this an easy drinker.
I’ve sampled this beer in the past (but a long time ago) and it seems better than remembered. A quality stout I wouldn’t mind picking up occasionally.

500ml - Aroma is roasted chocolate malt, caramel with a little lacto. Pours black with a huge brown head and great lacing. Flavor of burnt malts, dark chocolate and cream. Nice bitterness. Palate is ashy and creamy. A pretty tasty stout. AdamGott (387) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - APR 12, 2008
nice (and I was worried about the green bottle) - nice coffee/roasted barley/chocolate flavors, as much of a dessert beer as I have ever had! KM (418) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 14, 2008
Bottle. Black body, brown fluffy head. Sweet aroma, banana, roasted malt, chocolate. Dry flavour, some sweetness, but not as complex as the aroma. Bitter finish. Not as heavy as one should think. (Ånn, 23.03.08) FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Has a rather small and rapidly dissipating head for a stout. Jet black color, and when held to extremely bright light it looks like trying to look through an infrared camera filter - super dark red. Being from south Louisiana, I have what may be an uncommon observation about this beer: "Coffee with chicory". Coffee with chicory on the nose as well as prominent in the taste. Some maltyness and sweetness in the taste as well with a bitter finish of hops and more coffee with chicory. swanmann (778) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 21, 2008
The bottle pours thick cola color with moderate orange hued tan head. As it warms aromas of roasted coffee, alcohol and chocolate. The flavor is sweet chocolate with a nice bitter bite, medium bodied. Delicious.
