COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is a style that a lot of people get right. Highland is no exception. The beer pours dark mahogany with a medium to small head. The aroma is very good and true to the style with rich chocolate and coffee mixture and malt. Medium body with a watery texture. Green apple notes on the front end, but the taste is quickly overwhelmed by coffee bean and burnt toast. Reservedly sweet. Bitter finish with a slightly tanic aftertaste. A good beer. Refreshing with plenty of flavor without being too heavy.

Poured from the bottle at home. Pours a dark brown. Aroma is that of milk chocolate, coffee, Taste is great, milk chocolate, mocha, nice malts, faint dark fruit notes. Very smooth and creamy. Great Stout!

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.

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
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.

DrunkSanta410 (529) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at home, thanks to Brad! Pours black, little head. Aroma is thick milk chocolate and espresso. Taste is chocolate, light berries, faint coffee. Lots of flavor in a low abv beer. Thin body, high carbonation. Good beer!

jcnielsen (2505) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a black color with off white head. Burnt, roasty, malty aromas. Roasty, charred, slight chalk, malty, slight coffee flavors. I was expecting a little more coffee in this beer. Overall, solid, full bodied dark beer. Nothing specifically stands out, but its an enjoyable stout.

This is a very dark beer that is good on cold nights. Has a distinct coffee taste. Good aroma and a creamy head. Nice palate with great overall taste. Well done.

Black, clear beer with a one finger high, beige-brown head. Nose: Coffee, tobacco, roasted malt, dark chocolate, malt and dried fruit. Taste: Coffe beans, red berries, dark chocolate, roasted malt and hay. Body: Medium to full body with light carbonation. Great stout!

Aggiebob (190) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle poured into pint glass - dark black with a finger of a tan frothy head. Strong coffee and chocolate malt aromas. The taste starts out bitter (roasted coffee) and balances with a sweeter hint of dark chocolate. More a porter than a stout, but overall very good.
