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!

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.

A: A deep, dark copper basically a medium brown with ruby highlights and decent clarity. The light tan head is creamy, forms a small cap on the beer and has decent longevity.
S: A sweet malt aroma with some kettle carmalization. There is an earthy peaty aroma with a low fruitiness and a low spicy/earthy hop. About spot on smell for a Scottish Ale.
T: A light malty sweetness with a moderate hops bitterness. The there is a low diacetyl tag teaming with some caramel malt flavors. It has a low fruity flavor like prunes with a grainy, dry finish. The balance is about even between the sweet and bitter.
M: A creamy, medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. There is a light slickness on the palate, from the diacetyl common to this style.
O: A very enjoyable Scottish ale, not as sweet as some other but with in the style guidelines.
