St. Peter's - Cream Stout

Coffee and Chocolate.

Saint Peter's Brewery makes this amazingly opaque brew. Redolent with coffee grounds and chocolate with a tart finish, this Stout has overtones of prunes, raisins and herbs. The tart finish causes some to charactreize St. Peter's Cream Stout as "a bit off" but to my palate its just the character it needs to keep from being too sweet or heavy like many stouts. The longer I drink it, the more "bittersweet chocolate" it becomes. With notes of horehound and Worcestershire, its a Stout that stands apart. This would go well with Creme brulee or home-made caramel creme.
