Bottle dated 2005 – aged 2 years



This beer poured a crystal clear transparent brown black color that had ruby highlights all throughout, and still well carbonated.
The pour produced a creamy dense thick foam head that was tan in color, and fairly sticky to the touch. As it was drank it produced a fairly decent lace to the bottom of the glass. The aromas the emerged from the glass were of sweet fruit (apples, grapes, etc), roasted dark malt, nuts, coffee, some bitter chocolate and tones of fresh earth. As it warmed the fruit and coffee seem to be more pronounced. The flavors produced slightly different tastes then the aroma would have hinted to, simple array of hops (pine) roasted malts, fresh coffee, notes of dark chocolate, more hops in the middle, hints of fruit arose and disappeared fairly fast, slate and hay as it ended. The aftertaste was of a burnt/bitter chocolate and coffee mixture - dry. The body was on the thinner side, a tad watery, not what I would have expected, would have liked some body for a beer like this. After being aged (left in the fridge) for 2 years it seems to have held up fairly well, when fresh it seemed to have more body, but even in its current state it is very drinkable. But to be honest I would have never guessed this to be a Scottish Ale when I poured it, I if I didn't know would have thought it be a Porter or in that family.

I have had this Porter on tap at the Middle Ages Brewery in Syracuse NY, and also bottled Duke.
This is a great dark beer. lots of flavor, looks good tastes great.
This beer also meets the " My wife likes it too" test. When both my wife and I both like a beer, it is special.
Enjoy this with a burger, by itself, with some chips or pretzels. Any way you do it, you will like it a lot.
Caramel and malt , a touch of hops and maybe just a hint of coffee.
It is on my list of "if this was the only beer there is, I am not unhappy".
The Middle Ages tasting room is quite special. About 8 beers on tap every day until 6pm. Tasting is no charge, and you can taste all you want. Not a bad marketing plan, because you will find one or more of their products you will want badly.

Serving type: on-tap
