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.
