(4.5% English make from bottle) Dark with tan head, this oh too sweet porter misses the mark garnishing the first single star I have yet bestowed on a brew. It has an overly strong honey and vanilla flavor that just goes too far.
This was un-enjoyed sitting in front of the Tower of London looking out onto Tower Bridge from mason jars sitting with Marianne. While I do have a lot of respect for the St. Peter’s brewery, this is not one to be trifled with.
The St. Peter’s Brewery does have 1 pub amongst its assets, and it is the wonderful gem of Britton Street in EC1 (thankfully right around the corner from my place) called the Jerusalem Tavern. Well worth a trip for a great example of an eighteenth century pub (building dates to 1720) – creeky floor boards, niche rooms, and some beautiful tile works depicting the four seasons in the front saloon.
