look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Dark brown with a frothy tan head, popping away fast, leaving just some messy lacing.
Smells quite rich, with nice toffee, caramel, some cocoa, even sweet coffee, nicely roasted malts, dark bread, spices, butterscotch.
Sweet malty taste, rich with toffee and caramel. Light layer of dark chocolate, some fig and raisin, but nice roasted dark malts right away. Bready middle, with some spices showing up (light licorice, cinnamon, really faint nutmeg). Finishes roastier, but not burnt, nutty, with some dusty cocoa powder and warm alcohol.
Aftertaste is pretty poor, a bit of nut and dark malt, earthy hop, bit of alcohol. Light bodied, medium carbonated.
A nice winter warmer, probably one of the best beers from St. Peter's.

There is an (for me at least) rather uncomfortable after taste dominating here. I don't know whether it's the date or perhaps the liquorice. Safe to say, this is not my cup of....eh....glass of beer.

Poured from bottle, black opaque with low beige head. Aroma is full and complex, caramel, butterscotch, coffee, and some chocolate. Taste is sweet, medium malt body and a sweet sour finish. Notes of caramel, coffee, chocolate and liqourice.

Label says "F 24 13". Whether that means bottled on Feb 24, 2013 or June 24, 2013, I am not sure.

The beer is very dark brown with a very small tan head. The head fades quickly, leaving some bubbles.

Nose contains grassy English hops, as well as caramel and toffee. Slight dark fruit. A bit of a spice aroma, clove mainly. There is an alcohol aroma, which is surprising given the moderate strength of this beer.

Taste is nice. RIch malty flavours, with caramel, toffee and some dark fruit (date, mainly). Some grassy hop flavours as well. Well balanced between bitter and sweet. Good.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated and quite chewy.

Overall, quite an enjoyable beer. Nice and robust.
