A nice sharp bite in the flavor of this Stout. Very thin mouthfeel. The mocha is present with a nice chocolately taste, and the bite comes with a little bark (taste that is). i enjoyed this brew much but am finding that the Highland Brewing Company’s two dark beers taste too similar.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent Stout. Pours nice and black. Aroma was coffee and malts. Head was practically non existent. Flavor matched the smell, coffee and chocolate with almost no hops coming through at all. Enjoyable and I would buy this again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a slight brown head. Nose is coffee and cream with a nice burst of roasted barley and a touch of sweetness. Flavor, while not offering anything unusual for a sweeter stout, is rich and well-balanced and is surprisingly big for the relatively low gravity. Finished smooth and full of coffee. Above-average stout.
