A good stout. Nice dark color with a great long lasting creamy head. Sugar, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla in the aroma. Nice smooth taste. Not too thick but certainly not too thin, I think it was just right. Malty, roasted, with touches of coffee. A good stout indeed! On tap at Barley's in Knoxville, TN.

A great stout. Lots of mellow sweetness, great malty character and very rich and sweet. Lots of chocolate, with some brown sugar hints, and a roasted coffee finish.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2005 So...I get a lot of brown sugar and chocolate from this one. Very full and very sweet. This would make an excellent desert beer except the hops are a little too agressive, IMHO. Definitely not a chugging beer.
22-10-2005: Deep brown-black hue with a thin, creamy, tan head. Roasted, coffee, chocolate, charred toast, herbal. Not terribly complex, but pleasing. Moderate to heavily sweet, lightly bitter flavor. Moderately sweet, light to moderately bitter finish. Good roasty flavor but little else than what the aroma indicated. Medium-full body, watery/creamy texture, soft carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an almost jet black color with a small tan head that does not linger. It has a light aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Full bodied with medium carbonation, the flavor is full of roasted, chocolate malts and touches of coffee. Nice, smooth and creamy finish, with a touch of roastiness. Great stout from Highland.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Dark brown / black appearance, very small head that dissipates quickly. Roasty coffe bean aroma and flavor and a hint of vanilla. I had this on draft and it was very fresh. Good effort from Highland.

Creamy nose, slightly olivine. Well-bittered from dark malt, without a heap of sharp hops. A decent divot of stable, tan foam. Impossibly dark, but still transparent. Flavor is narrow, but well-crafted, leaning on the dark malt and the lactose. Bravo. Nothing wrong with this, except that I’m out.
