Pours thin with a small, beige head. Aroma and taste is dominated by coffee. The coffee taste is somewhat balanced by the hops and roasted character of the barley. Would be better if the coffee was more balanced by other aspects and if the body was not quite as thin.

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.
