When I poured this stout, the smell of roasted coffee filled my nostrils, addiction swiftly stimulated my brain, and I found myself closing my eyes and imagining I was at Denny’s with my bottomless mug of wonderful lukewarm gritty watered-down goodness. This was a pretty good stout. My one critique is that I would have preferred a bit more chocolate flavor.

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.

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.

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!
