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.

Dark dark reddish brown, nearly black, Small frothy head. Mild hoppy finish. Iím definitely tasting some coffee on the end, but itís definitely malty sweet and a little bit fruity to start with. Iím afraid my beerís a bit cold to get much in the way of aroma. Iíll have to re-taste at a later date. Heh heh heh.

Dark color with nice frothy head but somewhat thin. Aroma is malty and coffee. Flavor is rather sweet, chocolaty and carmel malts, with a roasted coffee tone. Rather thin and a bit sour.

This is by far one of the best porters I have ever had. Nice roasted coffee flavor and aroma. It is the smoothest and best mouthfeel I have ever had. When you want a world class porter, look no further.

So we sit back and ask ourselves, "Beerwise, whatís good about living in North Carolina?" Not much, we answer. "What about the Highland Oatmeal Porter?" asks a passerby. "Ah, ítis true!" we respond.

bottle thanks to goldtwins. dark color, thin head. characteristic porter aroma, plus a starchy minty chalky smell that is intriguing--although through all that, it smells somewhat thin (is that possible?). very round flavor, good balance of roasty chocolate and smooth soft oatmeal. pushing the limits toward sweet stout. good beer!

Thanks to Suttree for this. Pours dark black (deep burgundy through direct light) with one-finger tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, chocoff, cabernet. Tastes malty, with a smooth, complex mouthfeel giving way to big chocoff, some hops, and a fruity merlot-ish finish. Admirable balance and complexity. As it warms, more chocolate syrup comes out, and some milk stouty elements. Reminds me a little of Lancaster Milk Stout. Nice beer.

Dark brown colored, foamy brown head. Pilsner malt dominates the aroma with grassy tones and hints of roast. Roasted and chocolaty flavor with little hop and grassy tones. Rather thin for a stout.

Poured thick, rich dark brown, almost oily looking. Thin tan head over it. Smelled like coffee, with burnt sugar and chocolate in the background. Very thick mouthfeel for a porter. Probably the best porter Iíve had, though it borders on stout territory.

Bottle bought in Asheville, sampled July 05. Poured a rich dark brown almost blackish. aroma was a deep caramel, taste was some light chocolate and some roasted caramel with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Very rich and

good beer, better on draught than in bottle..this is a review on the bottle...thin head, pleasant malty aroma, generally smooth with a slight bitterness, but not overwhelming. not as complex tasting than on tap, but still worth it. reccomended.
