This malty and flavorful beer is deep copper red in color and has a remarkably smooth taste. Brown sugar augments the grain bill to add a sweet mouth-feel that blends exquisitely with ample Cascade hops. Enjoy! (OG 1.074, IBU’s 28-30, Alc 6.5% a/v)

2008-09-06. Deep ruby tinged brown body with a small tan head. (3+) Flavour has a good sweet malt base with earth character and touches of sugar, alcohol. Surprisingly amount of bitterness is okay, but not what I look for in a scotch ale. (6+) Mild malt aroma has an earth character that foreshadows the same in the flavour. (6+) Average palate is adequate but thin for my preference. On tap at the brewpub.

[1668-20080906] Tap. Sweet honeyed malt aroma has a bit of caramel. Clear, dark brown red body with a quick bubbly light tan head. Caramel malt and roasted sweet leaves flavour. Medium-full body. A little rough but so was the man, I hear.

PorterPounder (7124) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Had on tap at the Resurection Roadhouse in Seward, Alaska. Dark amber appearance, with frothy, off white bubby head. Toasty, nutty aroma - very sweet. Flavor has some caramelly sweet notes with some candied sugar notes in the back end. Very malty, like a Scottsih Ale should be. Alcohol hidden well. A decent Scottish Ale for a brewpub. Smoooth mouthfeel. Look forward to visiting them later this week in Anchorae,

On draft at the brewpub 7/6/05: Brown beer. Smooth malt with an undertone of sweet sugar and sharp finish. Drinkable, but not a "scottish" to be sure.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 Draft at Humpy’s in ANC. Deep, dark with a small film of bubbles that try. Nose is cocoa and orangey-caramel. Flavor is similar with maybe a hint of earthy smoke, but I may have just been wishing, Medium body is watery, drinkable and well-balanced.

On tap at the 06 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Murky dark amber color with a foamy tan head that quickly dissapates to a ring. Roasted grain nose with some hints of something I’ll call leather. Malty beer with some ripe plum, dark sugar and an almost burnt grain roastiness.
