Orfy, or anyone else in the know, have you had a St. Peter's Cream Stout? This stout is awesome!!I am enjoying one right now and have decided it will be my second AG brew, provided I get a recipe. I say Orfy because it is from the U.K

"Fuggles and Challenger hops combine with a blend of four different barley malts to create an aromatic, robust, dark chocolate cream stout with satisfying bittersweet aftertaste. Gold Medal winner in the International Beer Competition/Challenge in 2003, 2004, and 2006." This is taken straight from the label.

BTW, in a month or so I plan to do my first AG, the Goblin! Provided, of course, I like the sample pint I bought alongside the St. Peter's Cream Stout. Orfy's recipe just about has me sold on it.

I had one and I thought it had a diacetyl flavor to it.

Danek is from Suffolk. Maybe he'll chip in.

I'd never even heard of this beer until I read this thread. Having checked it out on their website, it looks awesome - I'll see if I can track down a bottle of it, and if I do I'll post any thoughts back here.

Thanks for the heads up

Hm. I'd never gone to look at their website before. Danek, want a roommate? I'm *so* moving over there to be closer to the brewery.

Anywho, business. I've had the Cream Stout before but I can't remember a bit of what it tastes like, it's easily been a year since I've had it. If I make it out and about this afternoon, I'll try to find a bottle. We get St. Peters stuff here and there, but definitely not a "full selection" by any means. I might venture out south to see if The Still has it.

St Peter's, Cream Stout (England)
This dark brown beer is made with Fuggles and Challenger hops, plus a blend of four barley malts from around St Peter's brewery in Suffolk. It pours with a minimal light brown head that dissipates almost immediately. The nose is thick with burnt toast, espresso and bitter chocolate notes. On the palate, it has dramatic bitterness, like burnt espresso beans and a chicory bite. The mouthfeel is surprisingly light, with a hint of plum fruit, but a fairly low hop presence and a finish that doesn't quite power through. A tasty beer that just misses out in terms of texture and ultimate complexity. 6.5% ABV, 50cl, 12 X 29.50, brewery website.

I have drunk much of this beer - very very nice! I am afraid I know nothing of the recipe though. Maybe you could try emailing the brewery? Another US member emailed the Caledonian brewery recently about Deuchars IPA and got pretty much a full recipe back! I think a UK based member might struggle, but if you're in the US as you're not local and are unlikely to attempt to "steal the market", you might find better success.

This beer is excellent I tried it years ago, the price is a bit steep but the beer is great. I actually found an extract clone and made it years ago before I went AG, it couldn't of been that great because I don't remember it.
