Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2010
Tap at Barcade. Pours dark brown/black with a thick, tan head. Nose is all roasted malts and some mocha. Flavor follows through with charming bitter malt character. Rich and almost creamy, this is a very smooth drink.

Slipstream (2009) - USA - DEC 3, 2009
On tap at RnH, where it was called a Scotch, but I thout it was closer to a porter. I see here that it is meant to be a little of both. Black pour. Strong, roasty flavor, with plenty of astringency. Middle Ages doesnt play around with dainty brews. Good stuff.

Draft. Pours a black body with a tan head. Malty bitter body with chocolate and light roasted malts. Dry, milled malt, lightly chalky, with hints of fudge and chocolate. Eh.

Draught. Nice consistency, coffee aroma, some chocolate. Tasted fantastic, a bit of a malty finish. Found it to be surprisingly good.

douglas88 (5926) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2009
12 oz bottle thanks to George. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium beige head. The aroma is heavy malts, light caramel and dried plums and other fruit. The flavor is very much like a Scotch Ale; loads of rich toasted malts, some coffee and chocolates, some more metallic roasted notes as well. Like a mix of a Scotch Ale and Porter. Nice! Easygoing and smooth.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 [2355-20090731] Tap. Chocolate malt roast sweet grains aroma. Clear, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Lots of coffee roast and burnt wood in the flavour along with a mild bitter evergreen aftertaste. Medium-full body. Quite good. (9/4/7/3/14) 3.7
(@ Middle Ages; Syracuse, NY)

[3487B-20101120] Tap. Little woody roast malt aroma. Black body with a quick foamy light tan head. Big roasty grains flavour has a long roast malt aftertaste. Full body is a little boozy and bitter. Good, drinkable. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5
