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.

Emeister84 (753) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Aromas of black earth, dark chocolate, roasted grain, and some floral hops. Almost black with dark ruby highlights, head is rocky and khaki-colored, and almost fully lasting. Dry, roasty, with notes of dark chocolate and fresh coffee beans, and well balanced by earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, with average carbonation and a roasty, earthy finish.

The aroma is very faint. The malts are a bit too bitter for me, sour almost. I am a big fan of oatmeal stouts and smokey porters. Unfortunately this didn't taste like it met either of those. I couldn't taste the chocolate flavors described and the hops seem to be lost in the sourness. Perhaps this is better when it is fresher, or on tap... I had a bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Very deep brown. Light sweetness to this porter. Rich and flavorful. Pretty decent.

Quite nice but not so rich in flavour. VEry aromatic and smooth rather than very thick was.

DrSilverworm (5024) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear dark brown color. Good thin off-white head. Good lace. Nice smooth lighter carbonation. Satisfyingly big body, especially for a porter of this ABV, it’s got a nice texture. Not so thick as to be in stout-town, but satisfyingly thick. No lingering viscosity, though. Nice aroma... Solid amount of oatmeal, some light chocolate... Good sweetness, but not at all cloying. Solid bitterness.This is a fine oatmeal porter. Better than expected.

12 oz bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, resin and chocolate. Taste is the malt, chocolate and a nice hint of bitterness.

The flavor is big on coffee and chocolate. There is a great malty profile that is right on the verge of bitter, but doesn’t quite cross that line. The hops are more pronounced in the flavor than in the aroma. The oatmeal gives it a silky mouthfeel and medium body. Quite complex and rather enjoyable.

12oz bottle pours a watery translucent mahogany amber with some clumpy, white head. Nose is lightly sweet, light bread, a little vanilla, oats. Flavor is malty, sweet, vanilla, bread, toast, chocolate, brown sugar. Medium bodied, sweet finish. Sweet finish.

This is a good porter. It pours a nice deep brown, has a robust nose of oats and a definite bittersweet, roasty, coffeelike finish. It’s a nice effort and I would purchase again.

I've been a little spoiled with dark beers, but I really see an oatmeal beer having greater depth than this porter brings to the party ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
