Pours black with cherry glints. There is no head at all and no real lace, it looks like old cask ale. The aroma is of plums, ripe cherries, some kind of spice and some fusel alcohol. The taste is unique. It starts out with a smokey roasty maltiness that quickly gives way to some medicinal notes and spicey alcohol. The hops are present in their bittering potential only. The mouthfeel is incredibly thick, in fact the body of this beer is reminiscent of motor oil. This is a very good winter warmer, super rich, thick and complex.

This is an ale packed with flavour, and alcohol. A great winter ale. Only downside was the appearance. Not much of a head. Soapy appearance much like alot of other st peter offerings, no lacing. Colour was a dark ruby red, almost opaque.

Aroma of roasted malts, raisins, coffee. Taste was superb. A rich, complex beer. Full of burnt coffee, smoke, caramel, licorice and molasses. Alcohol is warming. Mouthfeel is slick, moderately carbonated. Drinkability is alright, the smokiness is a bit much after a while.

From the green tinted St. Pete’s 1/2 liter "medicine bottle: The pour was enticing...revealed a stark ruby red ale with a 1 finger off white fluffy cap that laces well...moderate corbonation. Interesting nose...musty cinnamon with roasty molasses smells. Has a nice oily mouthfeel and a presence like a spiced porter...lovely roastiness combined with spices, and burnt toffee sweetness, light cocoa tones...then the finish is drying with a leafy hop astringency mingling with a nice charred toast effect...and a slow warming. A very nice winter ale in the vein of a spicey warming porter. Recommended.

Very deep ruby red, minimal tan head, low carbonation (good in my opinion). Malty, spicy aroma. Malt, hops, caramel sweetness are all balanced, licorice and burnt caramel both come through strongly later on and lingers to form a flavoursome aftertaste. An excellent, hearty, warming winter brew that does exactly what it's designed to do without being overly strong in alcohol. Highly recommended.
