Tastes great right out of the bottle, warm or cool. I prefer it cold, but its good any which way you take it. Its great going down, tastes delicious, and it’s got a lot going for it.

I can’t believe this beer was rated so low. I thought it was the shit. Poured a dark, amber brown with an off white bubbly head. It definitely wasn’t as dark as I had expected it to be. Nice malty coffee aroma and taste. This was a little different than most porters I’ve had, it was very smooth and refreshing. This would be great on a hot day.

Poured into my Flying Dog glass. Colour is clear but dark Brown with red hue. Good head, and lacing down the glass. Aroma is roastEd and and slight alcoholy, making a chocolate type overall aroma. Flavour is bitter up front. Flavour is also following the aroma of roasted and chocolate flavour. Finished slightly dry. Mouthfeel is full bodied, and almost syrupy. Overall, wow what a fantastic well balanced Porter, this is top notch!

Perfect start of floral hops and malt and yes, it’s got some of that spicy/peaty/malty Scotch flavor but this is hardly representative of the style. It is on the other hand a mighty fine brew.

Wow! This beer is impressive. Beautiful ruby color, changing to brown towards the edge of the glass, good head, and ’roasted’ aroma and taste make this beer a good one.

Malty in that inimitable Scottish roasted caramel way, not much hops. One of my favorite beers, with extra appearance points for Ralph Steadman.

The best porter I have ever had. Very carbonated with good healthy head. Rich dark color. Delish!!!
