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.

Draft at Brickstore Pub in Atlanta. Opaqe dark brown pour. Chocolate aroma and flavors. Some coffee, a little bitter, not a whole lot. Not much roastiness going on, more like a sweet stout to me. But thin if you are thinking of stouts.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 not much aroma. balck in color with brown head. too thin for a porter especially with oatmeal in the ingredients. nothing stands out. nothing much here. 3/14/08 - black but not opaque. small head. aroma is a little on weak side but has notes of chocolate. flavor is better than i remember with lots of milk chocolate and coffee. sugary but not too sweet.

this was deep dark brown and black. with tan head, about a 1/3 inch. it had good malts , toasted just right and tasted like almonds, and marshmellows. lots of dark chocolate, and lots of smokey flavors

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.

Pours a dark brown, small off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, and a little oatmeal. Flavor is tasty, chocolate and oatmeal, very nice balance.

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...
