A deep dark pint of thick molasses with a thin and fickle khaki to burnt cream head that leaves no lacing. The nose is faint and of dark malt and milk sugar.
The taste starts creamy and smooth and the flavor comes out as it warms in the mouth. This beer is very roasty all the way through with a nutty, smokey character and accasional vanilla notes. Really this is a fairly simple beer that drinks easy with a suprising dryness. My advice is drink this damn-near room temp. It got MUCH better as it warmed.
Mouthfeel is thin and syrupy but I could down a six of these with ease. Not totally sure about this "Scottish Porter" business, tastes like a damn fine dry stout to me but hey, it works as any of the three really.
