Black pour, tints of red and brown, with a light brown fluffy head; quite nice looking really. Aroma holds roasted malt, chocolate, coffee beans, a touch of dark fruit sweetness, and lactic sugars. Flavor holds lots of chocolate and roast, with a chalky dry palate. Not a bad porter really.

Had this bottled from the brewery. Poured a dark amber-brown color with off-white slightly creamy head. Aroma sweet, with malts, caramel and a little fruit. Full-bodied with just enough carbonation, this beer tasted initially of malts and caramel, ending with a sweet, smoky, yet smooth finish. Very complex, I enjoyed this beer.

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.

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.
