4/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck with a sacry dog theme artsy label. No freshness date.

Appearance: Dark copperish brown with a light tan lace that has no problem retaining.

Smell: Butterscotch diacetyl, toffee and malt sweetness.

Taste: Toasted malt, caramel/toffee, malt sweetness and light roasted malt are all in the big mixture of flavours. Faint butterscotch and peat smoke in the backround with an evenly proportioned hop bitterness.

Notes: Very tasty ... a well rounded brew that seems to grow on you. A beautiful malty profile that bursts with flavour.

Serving type: bottle

First, what the hell is a "Scottish Porter"?

A very dark brown beer with a creamy tan lace. Smell is faint, a bit earthy and lacto. Body is sturdy and even with a dextrin malt sweetness and texture, followed by soft caramel and chocolate malt flavours. Faint liquorice way in the back. Finish is earthy.

One of their better beers actually, IMO. Love the "Good Beer. No Shit" slogan on the label.

3.64/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

aroma is mainly vanilla accompanied by some toffee, smoked malts, dark chocolate and espresso beans. Appears black with a magenta hue and thin white foam. Taste is mildly dry with bitter black coffee overtones, assertive toffee, creamy nougat, dry chocolate and some faint hop bitterness. Overall, pretty well rounded and different porter. Very dry all around with some alcohol coming through as it warms.
