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.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Highland Oatmeal Porter is well-balanced but not what one would expect from a porter. Nice fresh hop aroma but no chocolate or coffee detected. Appearance is dark with a thinner light tan head that holds for most of the drink. Taste is mild malt with notes of chocolate and slight coffee, but these disappear way too quickly leaving a clean finish. Oatmeal Porter is a decent meal beer, but not very satisfying as a porter.

Twelve oz bottle: pours black with thin tan head that goes quickly, smells of coffee,taste is crisp with medium carbonation, smooth with coffee overtones but not heavy. Lingers long and heavier on the finish, more than other porters. Overall a pleasant porter but you may not want more than one at a sitting due to having to cleanse your palate after the finish.

Highland created great heavy scents of roasted coffee and dark chocolate when brewing this super opaque porter that is almost a stout (if you think there’s a difference). Great mouthfeel, with just enough sweet and minimal bitter overtones. This one pairs well with another bottle. Not my favorite style so I could only give it a 12 overall.

On tap at 6th and Vine. Pours black with light khaki head. Aroma has moderate chocolate malt presence with slighty earthiness from the coffee. Slightly chalky with wet coffee grounds. Thin but slick mouthfeel. Overall solid.

Bottle. Poured a very dark brown with minimal tan head. Great chocolate coffee aroma. Taste was everything I hoped for. Great malty flavor balanced well by the dark roast. Initial sweetness fades to light bitter aftertaste, but smooth overall. Good stuff.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Rich chocolate malt aroma. Pours very dark brown almost black with a large, light brown head and good lacing. Rich, sweet malt flavor with a good amount of chocolate. Finishes quite smooth with the chocolatey flavors lingering on the tongue. Good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pour was a rich dark brown/black with a high off-white head. aroma was slightly malty with sharp citrus hop scents. Taste was a good malt flavor of caramel and chocolate ending with a roasted character and strong hop finish of citrus, pine and resinous flavors. Medium body with no apparent oatmeal oiliness.
