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.

Appearance: Pure black with a thin buff head clinging around the edges.
Smell: Not a whole lot here, but a faint sweetness. Caramel and toast.
Taste: Wonderful malty sweetness; not overpoweringly sweet, but a fantastic combination of molasses and fresh bread. No bitter hoppy or coffee notes here.
Feel: Nothing but smooth, satisfying quaffability. A great silky creaminess with just enough carbonation to remind you that its there, and provide the slightest bite in lieu of the hops.
Overall: This is an outstanding stout. It hits the mark of providing easy drinking, malt forward drinkability, while still providing a respectable ABV at 6.5%.

Served in a Chimay Golden Goblet

A : Pours a dark black, the head looks oily and tan. It's about 1 finger.

S :Very rich, smells like a coffee flaovored heavy merlot.

T :Smooth and sweet. Creamed toffee coffee meets deep fruit.

F : Smooth with a thick texture with mild fizz.

O : I freaking love this beer and I will it drink often from now on. Some stouts go nuts with the coffee tones but this is perfect to me. So smooth and creamy.

Pours a deep, dark cola-color with a 1 finger tan head.

The smell is full of notes of chocolate, fig, and woody, dark fruit. Some faint notes of burnt coffee can be detected.

The flavor starts off with plenty of fig and raisin, followed by dark chocolate, vanilla and roasted coffee. There's also a strong oat character on the back end. Starts out sweet and ends up bitter.

The feel is medium bodied with decent carbonation. Very creamy and smooth. Alcohol is undetectable.

Overall, a pretty complex stout that offers a lot of varying flavors and aromas. A great balance between the dark fruit and chocolate that really blends well together. The flavor gets even better as it warms.
