    I find this is a lot like yesterday’s brew – very malted and very tasty!!

    I find it a bit dry on the finish with a very earthy aftertaste.

    I have to be honest – I’ve already had a couple of these in my fridge this fall, and I bought a pair for this tasting.

    I enjoy the St Peters winter ale!!

    Dark pour with tan head. Coffee notes on the nose. The taste is chocolatey, but there’s something in the aftertaste that I can’t quite put my finger on. I think it’s a sharp cheese type of taste on the back of my tongue, perhaps a brie or a blue? I didn’t mind this beer and I will probably get a couple more for the weekend.

    Dark in colour. A bit on the sweet side, and like a few of the other beers we’ve had this Taste-Mas, a hint of coffee. It’s interesting that you guys talk about loving this beer and haing more of it, because I’m not feeling it. It’s not bad, it just doesn’t seem all that special to me.
