BEER INFO

Brewed by:
St. Peter's Brewery Co Ltd
England, United Kingdom
stpetersbrewery.co.uk

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
'Fuggles' and 'Challenger' hops plus a blend of 4 local barley malts create an aromatic, robust, dark chocolate cream stout with a satisfying bittersweet aftertaste. Brewed with skill and patience in one of Britain's finest small breweries.

St. Peter's Brewery is located in a medieval hall in a remote and beautiful corner of Suffolk. There our beers begin their lives deep below the brewery with water drawn from a pure source - as it has been for over 700 years, essential for the full flavour and pure character of all St. Peter's beers.
Our beautiful flask-shaped oval bottle is a faithful copy of one produced c. 1770 for Thomas Gerrard of Gibbstown, just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia. The original is now kept at St. Peters Hall and is a rare example of an oval Eighteenth Century beer bottle.

Balanced and slightly sweet with a Near black brown color, this beer showcases peat smoke with coffee and cocoa nibs in the palette. The aroma has a pleasantly peaty bread aroma, along with a nice and mildly smoked chocolate aftertaste. The stout also has a very nice mouthfeel that goes well with the subtle carbonation of the beer. This can have a roasty characteristic that’s not so obnoxiously bitter compared to other roasty stouts. While the cream stouts are not my forte, this is a solid stout for its category. I recommend trying out their Old-Style Porter as well.

It's not a bad beer but to me it's not worth the price (I paid 5.49 for a pint bottle). Not much smell, A light cream flavor but it has a metallic aftertaste.

St Peter's Cream Stout, 6.5% ABV, 34 IBU. Not much nose - OK I must fess up here - I have a lousy sense of smell. For all I know this smells like baby unicorns. Pours dark and thin, one finger of tan head which mostly dissipated while I tried to get an in-focus picture. Palate is sweet with some coffee bitterness. Not bad.

A very balanced milk stout, yet it finishes bittersweet. Very well done.
Looks are average since foam dissipates quickly. Smells are well-roasted malt and sweetish. Tastes are kept in check by just enough hops. Feel is smooth and very soft.

Listed in the "1001 Beers To Drink Before You Die" the reviewer tells how their line is made of locally grown barley, hops and, most important, their own well water that is particularly soft. As a micro-brewer reviving the traditional arts in rural estate, I suppose it deserves to be on the list... in addition to how much I appreciate its Tastes.

Poured a very dark brown into a tall glass. Not much head but good lacing. Nice rich smell and taste. Definitely coffee and some dark chocolate. A very enjoyable beer and I love the shape of the bottle!
