The presentation is outstanding. What a unique flask-shape bottle with an old world meets mod script.

It pours nicely, drinks easily, but really doesn't live up to the prestige my beerman gave it. The flavor is mostly chocolate, but not beer chocolate -- more like Swiss Miss. Nothing particularly special, this beer reminds me of chocolate "stouts" like Young's.

The dissapointment here is its weak body. This earthy but mostly sweet taste would have been well supported by a fuller beer. Unfortunately, it tastes almost watered down and this lack of depth allows an unpleasant chalkiness to come out in the mouth.

From what I hear, St. Peter's does make some special stuff and it's especially difficult to find. I dropped 2.50 for a 12 oz. bottle of this and it wasn't worth it. If you can find a better deal, it's worth trying at least once (as all things are). As much as I dislike Young's Double Chocolate, your money would be better spent there. For a good, light stout just go with Samuel Smith Oatmeal.

Good, but not good enough.

Relax, relax.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Black with a brown head.

S: Roasty, sweet malt, chocolate, coffee, smells good.

T: Taste is the same, but better. It's very flavorful, and the nose was quite dull, comparatively.

M: Very full bodied. Very smooth.

O: A damn fine porter. This beer made me fall in love with the brewery, and I've tried almost everything of their that I can get my hands on.
