From a pint bottle into a snifter. Bottle has an interesting look to it. Not standard at all.

Beer is pitch black with little carbonation and no head. No lace left on the glass at all.

Smell is roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate.

Taste follows the nose well with lots of toasty and roasted flavors. Just a touch of booze at the end.

Feel gets the lowest marks for me. It's way light in the mouth for a porter and I wish the flavors had lasted longer on the finish.

Overall a solid porter. I want to have more from this brewery. This is my first St. Peter's

A: Black body with a fine off-white head.
S: Peppy toffee.
T: I has a bacon-like smokiness, but not an in your face one. Has a slight plasticy/chlorinated flavour that I often get from stout. Not completely dry. Just about right actually. A touch of dried fruit and a fruity kind of aftertaste. Muddy with some dark Minstrels chocolate.
O: Would LOVE to try it on cask. These guys know how to make stouts.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, earth, and very slight skunk aromas. Taste is much the same with char, cocoa powder, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with very earthy and char forward qualities that come across stronger in the flavors.

Serving type: bottle.

Appearance: dark ruby brown, tan lace, faint lacing as foam resolves, minimal carbonation.
Smell: Dark malts, molasses, chocolate, buttered toast, citrus, burnt caramel.
Taste: A gentle and smooth blend of malts up front, chocolate, just the right amount of sweet without being syrupy, hint of coffee and dark chocolate, hoppy bite at the end that cleans the palate. Barnyard, leather earthy quality, good, clean dry finish.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, minimal carbonation
Overall: classic porter, not particularly complex, easily quaffable and enjoyable.
