This beer is indeed a full-bodied Strong Ale; a Hybrid between a Porter and a Scottish Ale…
This hearty winter warm ale is named in honor of American poet Henry Longfellow.

I remember the black wharves and the ships, and the sea tides tossing free……. And the beauty and mystery of the ships, and the magic of the sea. –“My Lost Youth”

Bottle sample at DSG’s 10K rating celebration tasting at Dancing Camel, Tel Aviv. Thanks kerenmk. Clear deep brown with small brownish head. Aroma of prune, ink, some chocolate and dried fruits. Very salty flavor with notes of prune, dried fruits, hint of ink, watery and dry. Medium-bodied.

tomer (3846) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 24, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, very little head, deep brown but not opaque colour, aroma of cake and a touch stale toasted brown bread, chocolate flavor with toasty notes and a hint of carob, quite bland and watery. Not really interesting.

Prolitariat777 (102) - St george, Utah, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Excellent Scottish, dark reddish brown pour with tan head. Nice malty aroma with some dark rye muffin character. Taste malty slightly sweet with a little porter characteristics. Really good grew.

trapped (3786) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown with reddish tint, strong whisky aroma, small creamy beige head, low carbonation, caramelized malt taste laced with whisky, long finish with whisky aftertaste. Feels as if it has stronger alcohol content than it actually has.

Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2015
22oz bomber. Opaque beer, dark mahogany--no lacing, medium head fades down to a collar. Aroma is very very awesome, a nice cereal-coffee aroma with a hint of spice. Taste is very good as well--it’s actually a nice blend -- the scottish ale and porter mix well. Palate isn’t awesome, just a bit fizzy and a little too long/strong. Overall, a great winter beer -- tastes stronger than 5.8%

AirForceHops (8033) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2015
650 ml bottle purchased at my local Market Basket. Deeper ruby color with to much carbonation. Fizzy and lasting. Aroma is caramel malt, light peat and some toasted grain.

Flavor shows toasted malts and grain with a light smoke in the back of the sip. Secondary notes of chocolate and peat. Thin watery body. There is an old saying, " you get what you pay for." That would describe this beer.

Headbanger (4022) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a dark brown almost black with a decent sized head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, and spice. Taste of the same with a small amount of chocolate coming out. This full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.
