Highland’s most robust beer, having a very malty body with a large, roasted chocolate flavor. It is black in color with a very clean finish and a moderate hop flavor.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2007
Bottle... Black ale with a mid-sized, rocky, lightly tanned head. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate notes in the nose. Lightly sweet, mocha flavor. Medium-bodied with a skim milk mouthfeel and faint carbonation. Chocolaty, coffee finish. Appropriately named. Kudos to TURDFERGUSON for floating the bottle my way!

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Wonderful stuff. Tasted side by side with The Abyss (deschutes)... and I liked both equally. Chocolate, toffee, nice touch of hops, beautiful deep dark color... great beer.

EithCubes (5616) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Bottle. Chocolate and mocha nose, light aromatic hops. Lightly sweet. Ruby-pitch pour with a thick dense light brown head. Dry, tangy taste, lots of roast and slight bitterness and sourness. Wood and chocolate. Medium body, very dry aftertaste. Love the woody sourness, excellent effort!

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Pours brown/black with just a tinge of red against light. The aroma is mostly sweet chocolate and coffee. The flavor seems almost a bit restrained, a bit of coffee and chocolate, and a mildly hoppy finish.

TURDFERGUSON (4045) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bomber from Whole Foods in Chapel Hill. Crimson black with a bubbly tan head. Nose is lightly roasted malt. Flavor is simple, but smooth and tasty. Coffee grounds, chocolate, and a little hop astringency on the palate. Again, not a show stopper but a pleasent, easy drinking stout. Highland makes good, quality beers and the people that work there are good, quality people. Good, quality, word.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2006
22 oz. Great looking stout, nothing special going on in the nose. Thin mouthfeel of coffee (flavor) & dark choc. Mostly malts, w/ very little hops going on. WHY can’t I fing this in SC??

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2006
Sampled at the brewery, July 2006. Not a lot of notes on this as drinking it while walking round the brewery is not ideal for tasting. Very dark brown, not quite black. Plenty of flavour here. Creamy coffee, milk chocolate, burnt malt and, in the US style, a fair amount of tangy citric background hop. Not the biggest stout around, but pretty damn decent.

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Black body, tan head. Very roasty aroma, black patent malt with coffee. Taste like a more refined version of Bells Java Stout.
