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.

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.

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.

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

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2005
A lovely blend of cracked, roasted barley, wheat, and the eponymous oatmeal to soak up the bitterness. A damn fine brew for daily drinking. Dark and smoky and nevery downletting.

Zeswaft (1614) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Not much of a porter. It has a lot of hops present and they are pretty tasty. There is some slight smoky notes but no coffee or chocolate. As a whole it is a very good beer but not a true porter.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle... Extremely dark pour (clear ruby when held up to bright light). Small, fizzy, beige head. Both the aroma and flavor are somewhat bland, but unoffensive. Maybe a light touch of chocolate. Light-bodied and lightly creamy with fizzy carbonation. Watery finish. Not bad, but nothing really going on here either.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Deep ruby brown with a medium sized tan head. Some roast malt, caramel, and bittersweet chocolate in the aroma. Mild roastiness with a coffee like astringency, most notable in the finish. Some muted hop bitterness as well which clouds subtle chocolate notes. Mouthfeel is medium and fairly smooth.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2005
This has always been one of my favorites (not sure why Im just now getting around to rating it). It pours dark with red tinges. The flavor is balanced and robust, with roasted malts, level sweetness, mild hops, and hints of nuts and mesquite. Gotta love it.

Bottle courtesy of a friends. Deep dark brown in color with a nice tan fluffy head. Roasty malty aroma. Coffee like roastiness. Malty and hoppy flavor. Chocolate and caramel notes. Nutty. Well balanced. Full bodied beer. Dry finish. Drinkable. Very nice.
