Pours a very dark black, with a creamy looking one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like chocolate, vanilla, a bit of lactose, and strongly roasted malt.

This is less sweet and more roasty than I would expect out of a cream stout/milk stout. I get some chocolate, roasted malt, espresso, vanilla, dark fruits, and cherries, very slightly. It's a pretty full flavored stout for only 6.5% ABV.

As implied by the name, this is a pretty creamy stout, great mouthfeel, with a lower level of carbonation, and a medium sized body.

This is a pretty good English cream stout, I really enjoyed it. Cool looking bottle, too.

Appearance - Deep black colour with a rocky beige head that had very low retention becoming a lace cover very quickly and leaving only a tiny ring of lace in the glass at the very end.

Smell - Coffee and chocolate dominate the aroma with some sweet toffee and vanilla. there is also light hops aroma and some earthy wood notes at the end.

Taste - Creamy and sweet with a pretty heavy coffee flavour bitter woody hop at the back end a light yeasty taste in the middle and some mild vanilla toffee sweetness underscoring the whole lot.

Mouthfeel - creamy and full with good drying linger. Lightly carbonated this beer has the mildest tingle that is almost invisible.

Overall - By and large I do like this beer and will buy it again. It started very well and the middle flagged a little before a very pleasing finish. This is an odd way to describe a beer and I have not had many beers that seemed to drink differently as the bottle goes down. It pares well with dried sausage and Gouda cheese.

A: Black with a nice beige head, like the crema on a good espresso. Goes down quickly though.
S: Peppy and very fudgy. Dried fruits.
T: Cor blimey, it's delicious! Like the nose it's Bassett's Refreshers peppy yet the mouthfeel is soothing and creamy. It's fairly sweet and full of coffee. Lots of warming alcohol in the finish. As it warms I get dried fruit and a subtle medicinal flavour. Also some chlorine but that's typical of stout. Even some earthiness in the finish. Bitterness to sweetness level is perfect.
O: I think St Peters make some of the best bottled beer in Britain.
