COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sensual dark brew with the softness of a Scotch ale crafted with the malt make-up of an English Porter.

Bottle. Smooth start and finish. Malty, roasted barley. Touch of chocolate. Thin mouthful, simple. Eady to drink porter. Ok at best.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Clear deep amber color. One and a half fingers of frothy tan head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Roasty and grainy with a pleasant caramel sweetness. Perhaps a touch of chocolate. Simple, but quite enjoyable. 3.5 T: The label claims that this is a Scotch ale/porter hybrid and thatís about right. While the nose smelled like a straight up porter, the taste has aspects of both. Roasty and grainy with a peaty earthiness. Good bit of caramel, but not a whole lot of sweetness. Decent enough flavors and plenty of power to make this a tasty brew. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Not very creamy, but there is some weight to this and itís almost as good. 3.5 D: Easy drinking, but nothing special. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-01-2012 04:38:33

7/8/12. 12oz bottle thanks to Robert! Nice brown pour with reds on the edges under a thick khaki head. Funky yeasty aroma with touches of sourness, chocolate, and alcohol. Slightly sweet entry with some smokey aspects and some sourness going on. Eh.

MadRobin (1858) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, very deep brown with minimal head, but excellent lacing. Aroma roasted malt, spice, brown sugar, bittersweet cocoa, dark fruits and yeast. Taste is a complex bittersweet mix of smoky roasted malts, sweet dark fruits, pepper, brown sugar, strong espresso and bitter cocoa. Medium/light body and high carbonation, but a very pleasant mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

badwhale (352) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a very dark ruby brown color with a decent caramel colored head that disperses quickly. Nice thick fruit flavors, malt and a good aftertaste. Nice porter.

On tap at the brewery. Very dark brown. With a tan head that goes quick. Thick malty aroma with burnt hits peeking through. Smooth oily palate with rich roasted flavors light dark chocolate and malt. Now this was some good stuff.

Part Scottish, part porter - the marriage of the two is seamless. The Scottish sensibilities of this beer are like leather patches sewn on the elbows of a tweed coat of porter. It works. The shallow aroma makes it seem as though this professorís coat is more JCPenny than Orvis, but the taste pushes the overall impression to a comfortable place.

Dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with a bit of smoke. Taste is malty, smoky, with some coffee. Dry with a light bitterness on the finish. A pretty straightforward and easy drinking porter.
