Restrained aroma in a jet black pour. Smooth body has a spicy sweetness that makes it an ideal seasonal drink. mario_giri (255) - SWITZERLAND - APR 4, 2015
Schwierig nach gut 6 Bieren ein ernsthaftes rating abzugeben. Nur soviel: ich fand es sehr gut und werde es wieder trinken Bygers (1185) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2013
Draft 0,33l. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is soy sauce and cloves. Very smooth in the mouth, starts off fairly soy-saucy, finishes with a little clove and cinnamon taste.

White head. Lots of fruit and spiced aromas. Black strong in alcohol fruity and spicy clove flavoured with a little dryness in a crisp very bitter and warming roast finish. jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Pours black with tan head. Nice sweet aroma. Flavor has some bitterness. Quite nice. Got to visit the brewery and they seem to be a nice bunch.

Cask at the University Arms. As black as any beer you’re ever likely to find. A very full, complex flavour. Very interesting and delicious. Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2007
Cask at the University Arms. Pours black with a fairly tight medium tan head. Aroma is soy sauce and cloves. Very smooth in the mouth, starts off fairly soy-saucy, finishes with a little clove/cinnamon astringency. Hides the alcohol well.
I was told this is a Christmas version of their St Petersburg, but I can’t find it on their website.
