Knoxville Brewer’s Jam 10/04.
Deep brown color with a small off white head.
Caramel and roast malt are the main aromas, the heather doesn’t kick in just yet.
The flavor starts with a sweet maltiness that slowly fades into a nice dry, slightly bitter finish with a floral bouquet of heather coming in the end. Nice change up beer.

on tap at barleys in asheville. kind of dark looking with a little white head. malty flavor and smell. finish is dry and doesnt linger very long. its a good beer, but in my opinion it doesnt meet highlands usual standards. then again, i had just finished touring the brewery and drinking stuff from their taps, so i dunno. order it and try it, also to support these awesome guys

This beer’s first rating, and my 300th rating; on tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Pourd a barely translucent black color. The aroma and flavor were dominated by dark malts. The finish was slightly sour with a very mild hop tinge. The mouthfeel was fairly dry. Another good one from Highland.
