great great beer- the Duke welcomes you with a little note on the bottle... how nice. Not to sound wrong, but The Duke is welcome in my mouth anytime! It's a dark brown, red if you hold it up to the light, a ring around the glass of tiny tan bubbles. Smells roasty like coffee with brown sugar in it, I love it! Tastes sweetish, butterscotchy, brown sugary, coffee, yeah. Slightly bitter end, like something roasted would be. Mouthfeel is lovely, fizzy enough so it doesn't get to be too much. Drinkability is good as well, yes, unfortunately I only had one bottle to split. I guess I'll just have to go back to the brewery to pet the kitty Bubbles and get more Duke!

4.33/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a very brief description of the beer but no abv%.

Appearance: From a slow pour I got a very tall and thick foam head over a very dark brown liquid. Its clarity appears good though is very dark and hard to see through. As I sip on this beer the head holds on very well and makes a little slick lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma is big and beautiful. It hit my nose right as I opened the bottle. It is full of malty and bready sweetness will notes off caramel, dark toast and faint earth hops in the distance.

Taste / Palate: As the aroma suggested it has loads of malty sweetness flowing over the tongue. It is bready and toasty as well as sweet and candy like. I get all the dark toast and caramel notes from the nose plus a light roasted almond like nutty taste. It’s palate feels smooth, a little slick but it’s light enough to keep from being cloying.

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.
