COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique Highland creation, this robust beer is black in color, very malty with hints of chocolate-roasted flavor and a well balanced hop character.

Highland created great heavy scents of roasted coffee and dark chocolate when brewing this super opaque porter that is almost a stout (if you think there’s a difference). Great mouthfeel, with just enough sweet and minimal bitter overtones. This one pairs well with another bottle. Not my favorite style so I could only give it a 12 overall.

On tap at 6th and Vine. Pours black with light khaki head. Aroma has moderate chocolate malt presence with slighty earthiness from the coffee. Slightly chalky with wet coffee grounds. Thin but slick mouthfeel. Overall solid.

Bottle. Poured a very dark brown with minimal tan head. Great chocolate coffee aroma. Taste was everything I hoped for. Great malty flavor balanced well by the dark roast. Initial sweetness fades to light bitter aftertaste, but smooth overall. Good stuff.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Rich chocolate malt aroma. Pours very dark brown almost black with a large, light brown head and good lacing. Rich, sweet malt flavor with a good amount of chocolate. Finishes quite smooth with the chocolatey flavors lingering on the tongue. Good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pour was a rich dark brown/black with a high off-white head. aroma was slightly malty with sharp citrus hop scents. Taste was a good malt flavor of caramel and chocolate ending with a roasted character and strong hop finish of citrus, pine and resinous flavors. Medium body with no apparent oatmeal oiliness.
