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.

Chudwick (2278) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle - pours black with two fingers of beige head with decent lacing. Nose is simply coffee. Sip introduces light pine/floral hops. Hoppy bitter for the style with coffee bitterness as well. Easy to drink. Not what I expect from a porter, but still a good brew.

Roasty malt, dough and yeast, char and toast. Full with a nice trailing finish. Perhaps a hint of coffee. A very nice porter.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Pours deep red. Clear. Nose is a mellow blend of chocolate, coffee, toasty malts, coffee and other roasted complexities. Flavor is roasty toasty and some bready malts. Moderately dry finish. Medium light body with a watery gesture.. This was last sentence was from a re-rate. I really enjoyed this one when the fucking idiot beer bars in knoxville don’t pour it in to a cold glass when the beer is already cold. This is really solid and full of flavor when it warms up. Nice.

Draft at tasting room. Not as good as expected. Nice color. Relatively smooth but honestly, rather plain. No outstanding characteristics

From a 12 bottle shared in Avon, NC. Pours cola brown with an off white head with scant lacing. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Moderate carbonation. Smooth mildly bitter finish.

Pours dark brown and deep garnet in the light. Light tan head that's frothy. Aroma is light malt and roast chocolate. Taste is roast malt and more chocolate notes and coffee. Finish has some hops and aftertaste is roast bitter chocolate. Somewhat lacking in depth and complexity, but an easy-drinking brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brunsvart öl med ett beige skum. Doft av malt och lätt rostade toner. Smaken är ganska söt. Havrekakor och rostade toner. Viss efterbeska.

b3shine (6149) - Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; cola with ample foamy light beige head. Smells of dark malt, bitter chocolate, and some roast. Tastes like it smells, only smoother and more balanced. Nice on the palate. Enjoyable.

Tasted on vacation to Atlantic Beach, NC. Dark, robust coffee scent, gorgeous black pour with big foamy tan head and thick lacing, medium creamy feel, and a big coffee oatmeal dark chocolate flavor. A fine porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
