4.25/5 rDev +22.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Bought as part of Dundee's Ales & Lagers Seasonal Pack from Southtown Beverage on 4/26/13. Case price was $ 17.99.
poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Smith's Pint Glass. Served at Ambient Temp.
appearance: clear medium brown, liked Brewed black tea supports a 2 finger shortbread colored head. nice lacing.
aroma: nice toasted malt with English style earthy hops.
mouthfeel: smooth, maybe a little thin for the style.
taste: lovely, caramel sweetness with a touch of cocoa. some hazelnuts.
notes: Wow! wasn't expecting a beer this good from Dundee but it is an excellent beer. Maybe a little light for the style in color, mouthfeel and body but it is delicious beer that can hold it's own and will become a regular of mine.

3.01/5 rDev -13.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25
A dark amber in color, but not opaque or cloudy when held up to the light. a medium head which dissipates relatively quickly.
Smell is somewhat faint, a little malty with maybe a tiny bit of nut.
Malty and sweet, with a note of chocolate, and a very faint smokiness. Also has a slight metallic aftertaste that I have noticed in other Dundee beers.
Feels light, not as creamy as some other porters. Lightly effervescent.
This beer is from a sampler pack of Dundee beers and like most of the ones I've sampled, it is OK, but doesn't quite stack up to others of it's kind. Although this is the best beer of the sampler, it still seems like a watered down version of a true porter. But it is easy to drink, the flavor is enjoyable, and the 6.5% ABV leaves a nice buzz. I would buy a 6-pack of this if I saw one, if only because the price is fairly cheap.
