Near black. Rich coffee aroma. Very dry and rosty with good maltiness. Lingering bitter finish. Robust and delicious.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 On tap in Dundee, Scotland... Lovely beer! Pours a deep dark red colour with a thick creamy brown head. Tastes brilliant, goes down well! Choco/liquorish taste, thick black body, soft and spicy taste with a roasted aftertaste... very enjoyable!

Deep dark red almost black with a beige thick, creamy lasting head. Smells of nice rich roasted coffee, mocha/coco and malt. Simple but not overpowering. As it warms it gets a stronger smell of chocolate. Smooth full creamy thin body. Nice full bitter taste from start to dry finish. Tastes of vanilla, coffee, and nice roasted malts with chocolate and liquorish. Though its a bit thin, its very enjoyable and a great porter.

Bottled. Approaching black in colour with a friendly beige head that shared the experience with me. Roasted malt and mocha aromas that only got more complex the more the beer warmed. Liquorice and bitter chocolate. Good bitter structure, providing good length for the complex roasted malts to ride upon and impress.

Excellent excellent beer, very suprised by this. Aroma is fruity hops, with a roasted smokiness to it. Flavour is fruity and roasted, with a very easy finish, which lasts longer than any other scotish beer iv ever had. This is the best scotish ale iv ever had.

on draft at psbh, a very drinkable dark beer, although i found the aroma lacking it delivered a great malt based porter with hops just not quiet coming through
