2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Our table had a long discussion trying to figure out what the brewer meant by calling this a "Scottish Porter". Maybe it’s supposed to be something between a Scotch Ale and a classic Porter? Whatever the case, it’s a pretty unremarkable beer. Colour is dark reddish-brown, body is slightly murky. Aroma is weird - more of that iced tea that I got off of their pale ales, and some maltiness. Flavour is rather sweet and one-dimensional. Finish is dry and thin. I just couldn’t get into this one.

Nothing exceptional, just a typical stout. That being said, it’s not awful, just not something I’ll seek out again.

A- Pour an extremely dark brown letting very little light pass through.
S- Light grain, toasted malt.
T- Lightly roasted flavor, hints of burnt toast. Not a whole lot going on.
M- Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.
D- There was nothing objectionable about this beer but absolutely nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Una discesa nella mediocrità per Flying Dog con questa porter senza tratti caratteristici: caffettosa, con note di mati tostati, una sfumatura di cioccolato e un leggero tocco amaro nel finale. Piacevole, certo, ma incapace di affermare la sua personalità.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: deep brown pour, some faint clarity near the edges with a khaki colored head that recedes quickly. Aroma is somewhat mild, with notes of light chocolate malt, roast, caramel, & light prune. Taste is a touch watered down with stronger licorice flavors; anise, roast, caramel, notable malt finish with a touch of bitterness, bother from the roast & some moderate hopping. Far from the best in the style, but easy to choke down.

Decent porter, but not much more. Has the characteristics of a classic porter, but does not rise above mediocrity.
