There is an (for me at least) rather uncomfortable after taste dominating here. I don't know whether it's the date or perhaps the liquorice. Safe to say, this is not my cup of....eh....glass of beer.

Poured from bottle, black opaque with low beige head. Aroma is full and complex, caramel, butterscotch, coffee, and some chocolate. Taste is sweet, medium malt body and a sweet sour finish. Notes of caramel, coffee, chocolate and liqourice.

Label says "F 24 13". Whether that means bottled on Feb 24, 2013 or June 24, 2013, I am not sure.

The beer is very dark brown with a very small tan head. The head fades quickly, leaving some bubbles.

Nose contains grassy English hops, as well as caramel and toffee. Slight dark fruit. A bit of a spice aroma, clove mainly. There is an alcohol aroma, which is surprising given the moderate strength of this beer.

Taste is nice. RIch malty flavours, with caramel, toffee and some dark fruit (date, mainly). Some grassy hop flavours as well. Well balanced between bitter and sweet. Good.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated and quite chewy.

Overall, quite an enjoyable beer. Nice and robust.

St. Peter’s Winter Ale has a thin, off-white head, a very dark brown (essentially black) appearance, some visible bubbles steams on the side of the glass, and not a whole lot of lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, dark-roasted barley malt, black cherries, sugar, a bit of chocolate, and maybe a trace of added spices. Taste is of all that, with a fruit cake note, some bitterness, and a bit of charcoal. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick, and St. Peters’s Winter Ale finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and moderately drinkable. Overall, this is quite delicious.
