St. Peter’s bottle is unique. Never thought I would read the words ’Gibbstown (NJ)’ on a U.K. beer label. Porter has a reddish highlight, light bodied, roast malt and bitterness. With two beers blended together I think it adds to this Porter’s complexity. mecafilo (219) - Perugia, ITALY - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle @ home. Pours with an almost black colour, small diminishing head. Aroma is chocolatey and slightly coffey, but quite faint. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, slightly sour. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation (quite fizzy for a dark brew). john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Apr 2010 - Pitch Black in colour. Very Malty; roasty malts, coffee, hint of chocolate. Fruity; sour fruits (berries). Hoppy; earthy and grassy hops. Nice malt/fruit/hop balance. Sour (slightly bitter) hops and fruit over roasty malts throughout. Nice Porter! (2010-04)

Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (cremosa; no muy buena retención). Carbonatación mínima. Poco cuerpo. Aroma a café, cacao y frutos secos (quizá nuez). Sabeor que sigue al aroma, suave, sin ser dulce ni amargo. Tiene un toque metálico que se percibe en algún trago pero no molesta. Rica. wlf (589) - DENMARK - NOV 18, 2016

500 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 3/24/2016. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, herbal, and pepper; with lighter notes of smoke, char, nuttiness, dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, herbal, and pepper; with lighter notes of smoke, char, nuttiness, dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, smoke, char, herbal, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice roast/hop malt/bitterness balance; some light lingering hop/char astringency near the end of the glass. Light-moderate dryness from hop/char bitterness, increasing through the glass. Light carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is an excellent English porter. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Seems like a cross between Brown/Robust porters in style. A very enjoyable offering. kajser27 (1805) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 28, 2016
Ruby to black colored, small beige head, not very lasting. Aroma is of dark chocolate, some coffee, bit apple and dark fruits. Taste is medium sweet malt, dark chocolate, coffee, light apple and bit dark fruit, moderate- roasty bitterness, dryish finish, decent lasting choco finish. Meidum bodied, soft carbonation, bit creamy. Not bad...
(bottle, Beer Club Pula) Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2016
Brown color with reddish tones and very fast disappearing off-white to beige foam. Aroma is sweet and slightly hoppy, notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, caramel and some light floral. Taste is also sweet with notes of roasted malt and vanilla. Medium to light body with soft carbonation, slick texture and a bitter finish. Mario80 (29) - Galicia, SPAIN - SEP 7, 2016
One of my favorite beer! Pours gold colour beer with a medium head. Well-balanced! PanMarek (438) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Opaque reddish brown with moderate foam. Pleasant heavy roasted, caramel malt in the nose. The flavor is slightly mild, but the caramel and toffee notes come up. Medium body, low carbonation, slightly chewy.
I love these bottles.
