Re-Rate 04/26/02: Deep garnet, frothy beige head, decent lace. Nose is malt, caramel, nutty sweet. Front is sweet, top light, the finish is acidiac dry, moderate carbonation and also has a decent hop bite, drinkable MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2002
Labeled a ’Scottish Porter’, whatever the heck that’s supposed to be. Regardless of the title, really enjoyed this one. Nice dark color, though I agree the head dissipated a bit quickly. Very rich flavor, with huge amounts of chocolate. Very quaffable, nice and creamy, a very enjoyable brew. bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2002
Great taste - perfect color. Nice head - but it dissappeared too fast. Dogbrick (13036) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2002
What a great Ale-that-tastes-like-a-Porter! Verk dark with a hint of tree-sap color around the edges. Easy to drink and not syrupy or thick. Perfect hint of malt. belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2002
Nice, slightly rosted aroma and flavor. A little light for a Scottish Ale...actually more on the porter side. I am not a big fan of porters, but quite enjoyed this one.

Well it’s a pretty good beer-has some malt yet it is fairly dry.Not what I would guess to be a scotch ale or porter JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 1, 2002
Scottish porter? I would envision a smokey, malty brew. Lacks in expectations. That said a dry brown porter. Not bad in that category. Skip the censorship ploy. mimsy (8) - Naples, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2002 does not count
Dark color. Flavor has hints of burntness and has a mild aftertaste. Not my favorite and not Scottish in any sense of the term. P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 25, 2002
minimal malt nose. deep burgundy color, minimal taste, slight alcohol taste. BOOOO BeerNazi (169) - winnetka, California, USA - MAR 22, 2002
scottish ale? this is not scottish ale, this gives the good scot beers a bad name.
