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.
