closey22 (1719) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Dark brown with lasting foamy beige head; aroma is chocolatey; flava is mild roasty nutty; feels too light and fizzy per style ; finishes dry roasty nutty tangy I would call this a brown ale

12 ounce can, no canning date that I could find but I’m pretty sure this was a new arrival at my local beer store so I’m assuming it’s a somewhat fresh can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear reddish/amber color with about an inch off-white head that stuck around a little while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like nuts, grainy/bready malt, toffee and some eathiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some light peaty smokiness and fruitness (apple, pear) noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. Truthfully, I only bought this because Maxwell is my last name. But this is a nice Scottish Ale, it’s certainly worth a try! If you like malty Scottish Style Ales, might as well try this one. $2.79 a can.

dmac (5715) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2015
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a clear orange-brown with a small bubbly light beige head. Aroma is earthy, light peat, caeamel and chocolate malts, nuts and tea. Flavor is real nice, peat, earth, nut shells, dried out orange rinds, dough, hint of toffee. Body is a touch thin with average bubbly carbonation. Rather surprised by this one I like it.

PorterPounder (7541) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Clearwater, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz can. Dark amber pour, light off-white head. that fades quickly. Light toffee aroma with some peat-like accents. Grounded earthy flavor with some sweet toffee notes a touch of Biscotti sweetness, a touch of vegetable funkiness. Crisp mouthfeel. Pretty decent.

sebletitje (9553) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2015
355ml can from Total Wine, Tampa. Acajou au col crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme est malté, pâle, caramel et Munich, rétro fruité noir assez plaisant avec de fines effluves houblonnées en rétro. Palais reste fort centré sur le malté, pâle, pointe de grillé, léger chocolaté avec un fini sec. Fruité noir, sorte de date et de figue pour une effervescence moyenne voire basse. Pointe de chocolat en poudre sur la fin. Sympa pour juste 5%, le score assez bas de cette bière ne me semble pas vraiment justifié.

chinchill (4440) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2015
12 oz can at the Dublin Irish Festival. Medium body with excellent soft mouthful. The head initially looks fine but has weak retention. Lightly Smokey aroma is dominated by dark roasted grains with a faint trace of hops at most. The flavor is not as appealing but certainly good. O: average flavor but very appealing aroma ... In a can.

Drank straight from the can. Smooth, easy to drink. Richer flavor than expected. Good but not fantastic.
