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.

Black w/ a nice tan head. Smells and taste of roasted malts. A bit light on the mouthfeel but I think that adds to the drinkability. Possibly the most sessionable stout I’ve had.

TXBadger (2565) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Pours a very dark brown color with khaki colored head. Roasted malt, chocolate, and some caramel sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a lot of roasted malt flavors. A solid stout.

Thick oily pour with a medium creamy tan head. Robust roasted malts accompanied by a medium toffee flavor. The aroma just isn’t there to match the flavors in this brew. Overall, enjoyable roasted stout.

A hearty stout, with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee. Full, rich. Great in summer or winter. Goes well with just about any meal or solo.

BOD 12/1/15. Pours black. Outstanding head volume and lacing, world class retention. Light nose of roast and chocolate. Light body that is water like. Slightly below standard carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a lackluster finish. The flavor profile is good. It lacks intensity (think stout lite...very lite) but is well balanced. The flavor is pretty much one dimensional and lacks complexity. It begins with a blend of light roast and chocolate. The middle adds a touch of hops but very little bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of the middle.
