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

Cask at Jan 'fonefan' Bolvig's birthday bash, White Horse, Parson's Green, London.

Let's cut to the chase; it's Saint Petersburg with hugely caffinated cojones.

Everything that makes St P a great beer - creamy roast notes, effortless drinkability, velvet mouthfeel - is turned up to eleven and doused in black coffee.

Of all the beers that contributed to a huge pile of vomit in the upstairs gents that night, this one was a standout.

A - Dark Mohogany Brown thin head and a little lacing
S - Sweet coffe ice cream, Cream soda, deliciousness
T - Coffee but without the bitterness, slight caramel and brown sugar. chocolate nutty goodness
MD - Smooth and perfect off the cask. A very slight bitterness in the finish with a cleaner aftertaste than expected. All the flavor of a Imp stout but a lower alc % to be able to drink more.
Excellent
