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.

12oz bottle big thanks to AlexFields. Pours a dark brown almost black with thin head. Strong coffeee aroma. Great coffee flavor with mild hints of bitter chocolate. Think of this as more coffee and less mocha. Body is a bit thin as I prefer thick stouts. But ,this is good and refreshing. If you like coffee try this. Very sessionable.

pours a thick black topped off with a thick tan head, truly the way a beer should look to me. Aroma is of fresh brewed slow roasted coffee. Taste is of mocha and chocolates with a slight touch of cloves. thick but not too heavy, finishes smoothly.

glennmastrange (2489) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt aromas of toasted cereal, moderate herbs for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with background notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Head is small, frothy light brown with spotty lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear very dark brown. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation. A tasty easy drinking Stout

Highland Black Mocha Stout is not an in-your-face stout, but it is still enjoyable as a sessionable brew. Moderate malt aroma rising from a requisite dark pout with a nice tan head that stays well. Taste is malty with coffee and chocolate notes but not overwhelming with a clean finish. Black Mocha is definitely a nice everyday brew.

Bottle, Whole Foods Orlando. Rich mahogany colour with a deep tan head. Chocolate and roast malt aroma, earthy flavours, pleasantly dry with light metallic notes, then finishes with some tasty blackcurrant.

It pours black with a bit a light that gets through when held up to the light. The head is brown with lacing. It has aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, and maybe a hint of cinnamon or brown sugar. It has smoked flavors with chocolate.

Aroma I dark roast coffee and a bit of tobacco come wafting from the black liquid, the head is a soft khaki color floating atop. The flavor is a perfect example of the taste, but with dark fruits added for good measure...perhaps some overripe blackberries. The taste is lightly bitter, an umami with an edge. A good finish, short and not invasive at all. I’d definitely drink this again if someone were to offer it up!
