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.

A good dark beer. Very malty with a sweet smoothness that’s not oppressive. Not very hoppy at all. Full thick body.

PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Rerate Must have had an old bottle last time around - much more chocolate flavor, aroma more pleasant with some creamy chocolate, mouthfeel missing that metallic feel. Original 2.9 Jax Beer and Wine, Atlanta, Ga - 12 oz bottle. Dark purple fading to black pour with a mocha colored head, thin, but long lasting. Not much of an aroma, perhaps a touch of fresh lake water, some school paste (the kind you ate as a kid). Flavor has some brief chocolate notes, some milkiness. Decent lacticity, medium thick mouthfeel. Tastes slightly metallic in the finish. Had worse.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Caramel-coloerd head with moderate retention. Beer is dark brown, almost black, slight tinge of red when held up to bright light. Full-bodied and richly-flavored while still being smooth. Not as intense as many other porters. I think the presence of the oatmeal mellows it out. Maybe it isn’t truly representitive of porters, but I don’t care...I like it.

Black with a medium tan head. Nose and taste overwhelmed with chocolate. Very full in the mouth, silky, goes down smooth. Tastes cold.

Bailz316 (228) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Pours a black body with tan head. A suprisingly lively beer. Nose is grapefruit. Roasty and coffee flavors. Malty. Moderately bitter finish.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Bottle. Thick, dark black color with ruby tints and a thin, beige head with solid lacing. Lots of burnt, roasted malts with a hoppier finish. Roasts linger on the back of the tongue following a smooth, silky mouthfeel. Very tasty.

masedawg (156) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Very black in color, smooth roasted aroma. The beer has a good contengency of roasted flavor and hops and leaves a bitter impression on the palate. Definitely worth a try.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 I enjoyed this beer... after a few sips I was dissapporinted. But the more I consumed, the better it got. A small but frothy head. A lillte bitter start, but a great chocolate roasted nut finish. Has a light hint of hops that flickers the tounge
