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. thekmoonlegend (115) - Lynn, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2010
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.

12oz - Red/brown liquid with dark tan head. Small bubbles. Molasses nose with some smoke, same on palate. This was good. Leighton (22056) - 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 (2678) - 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.

Draught. Nice consistency, coffee aroma, some chocolate. Tasted fantastic, a bit of a malty finish. Found it to be surprisingly good. joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2009
