Very nice porter, one of my favourites. It´s not sweet nor acid, just bitter with strong coffee notes. I find it very sesionable and a good representative of the style.

Just an ok beer.

Looks pretty good, nice dark color, pretty tan head.

Smells stale, unattractive, a big lager-y, though with some attractive malt notes that partially redeem it.

Malt, bitter, hint of cocoa. Meh.

Pretty good mouthfeel. Not highly viscous but still somehow conveys richness

Beautiful bottle is the best part of the whole thing. There's better, don't re-buy.

DATE TASTED: April 18, 2015... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick.. OCCASION: a nightcap after celebrating bro-in-law Gil's 40th anniversary... APPEARANCE: pitch black body as expected; creamy, substantial head that settles to a 1/2 inch; laces in swaths of brown--and the bottle scores points too... AROMA: definite toffee, burnt cereal malts and chocolate; peat and smoke elements as well... PALATE: a creamy, medium-bodied, mouth-filling porter that finishes with subtlety; mildly active... TASTE: luscious toasted cereal malts and possible Columbus hops create a full-bodied, sweet, semi-lactic taste; enough earthy qualities to create a warming experience... OVERALL: a strong, enjoyable porter that contains all expected aspects of the style; the ABV % is adequate but not noteworthy; St. Peter's offers another style-appropriate bottle, with cola and peat stoking a working man's drink...

From a pint bottle into a snifter. Bottle has an interesting look to it. Not standard at all.

Beer is pitch black with little carbonation and no head. No lace left on the glass at all.

Smell is roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate.

Taste follows the nose well with lots of toasty and roasted flavors. Just a touch of booze at the end.

Feel gets the lowest marks for me. It's way light in the mouth for a porter and I wish the flavors had lasted longer on the finish.

Overall a solid porter. I want to have more from this brewery. This is my first St. Peter's

A: Black body with a fine off-white head.
S: Peppy toffee.
T: I has a bacon-like smokiness, but not an in your face one. Has a slight plasticy/chlorinated flavour that I often get from stout. Not completely dry. Just about right actually. A touch of dried fruit and a fruity kind of aftertaste. Muddy with some dark Minstrels chocolate.
O: Would LOVE to try it on cask. These guys know how to make stouts.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, earth, and very slight skunk aromas. Taste is much the same with char, cocoa powder, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with very earthy and char forward qualities that come across stronger in the flavors.

Serving type: bottle.

Appearance: dark ruby brown, tan lace, faint lacing as foam resolves, minimal carbonation.
Smell: Dark malts, molasses, chocolate, buttered toast, citrus, burnt caramel.
Taste: A gentle and smooth blend of malts up front, chocolate, just the right amount of sweet without being syrupy, hint of coffee and dark chocolate, hoppy bite at the end that cleans the palate. Barnyard, leather earthy quality, good, clean dry finish.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, minimal carbonation
Overall: classic porter, not particularly complex, easily quaffable and enjoyable.
