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 shout out to a NC brewery for doing a beer like this. A pitch black appearance with a beige head. The aroma is chocolate and coffee. Some sweetness in the flavor but mainly a bitter coffee and dark chocolate presence. This is quite a sweet stout and if its so called a porter one of the more complex ones. Good job!

Aroma of currant, grape, black cherry, oats, molasses. Appears a deep, dark, almost opaque brown with hints of ruby when held to the light. Flavor is mild roast coffee and chocolate; no apparent flavor of oatmeal. Palate is medium-light, a bit slick, with mild effervescence. Overall, a superb underlying porter but dissapointing in the non-appearance of oatmeal flavor. Still, my thanks go to Jonathan for this fine North Carolinian brew.

Had this on tap. Dark brown color with a malty, chocolatey nose and thin head. Moderate carbonation. Chocolate, coffee, and malt flavors. Slightly sweet. A good beer.

This was a very good oatmeal porter. Very sweet and dark. Great texture not as thick as a stoudt as reflected by the porter tag and that adds to the goodness.

12 oz bottle-thanks to Singlelensref for this one. pours almost pitch black with a smooth beige head like a nitro pour. big roast, anise, some char and chocolate notes in the aroma. the taste is more like a dry stout with some nutty roasty characters. There is also a touch of smoke on the aroma as well. more aromatic than flavorful. i must note that this bottle is contract brewed in virgina by Wild Goose brewing company, so its not really a NC beer...

Dark brown and ruby body. The tan head is thick with small bubbles. The aroma is caramel, chocolate and a little coffee. The taste has roasted peanuts and milk chocolate. Nice.

(Thanks to Drew for hooking me up!)Dark brown body with red edges. Fat laces on the glass. Malty and sweet aroma, with notes of chocolate and crystal malts. Soft and sweet. Lots of oatmeal make this one smooth and mouthfilling. Turns just a bit dry on the finish, but the oatmeal sweetness still lingers. Quite quaffable.
