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.

Nice roasty aroma. Good roasted body and flavor throughout. Finishes somewhat to the dry side.

I’m not quite sure how a breakfast food got introduced to beer. I managed to force this entire thing down. No redeaming qualities. Overpowering smell and no head. Toss this one into a nearby manhole if possible. Nothing good ever came out of Asheville.. including this swill.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Deep brown with caramel head that is thick and foamy. Alcohol aroma with coffee and roasted malt. The bitterness of burnt coffee combined with roasty accents and a hint of chocolate. Smooth but a little thin. Good palate, not complex, and well crafted. Nothing really overpowering about it though.

Large tan head, good retention and lace.Dark brown brew with ruby highlights. Roasty nose. Medium body. Some roasty notes with a hint of chocolate and some medicinal flavors. Finish is medium dry. Just not alot going on here.

Straightforward but decent brew. Almost black with just a bit of red. The dark tan head holds its own throughout. Nose is mainly sweet malt with a bit of grain. Very creamy but maybe just a little thin in the mouth. Malt and choco sweetness tends toward candy, I’d like to have had a tad more roasty bitterness.

Oats are delicious, and so is this. I didn't taste the chocolate and toffee flavors others did - I tasted smoky, hoppy oatmeal from aroma to aftertaste. Still delicious, and smooth.

SpringsLicker (3289) - Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2004
Rich creamy long lasting head on an almost opaque black beer. Strong light reveals rich red highlights. Smoky maltiness in the aroma which is deep and soft. Rich chocolatey , malt flavor. Very well done Porter.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2004
Opaque, dark cola-colored, almost black; fluffy tan head with poor to average lacing. Enticing aromas of toasted almonds, toffee, chocolate mousse, black jellybeans, and spicy metallic hop. My tongue is coated with sweet molasses malt, followed by a blade of sharp herbal hops, unsweetened baker's chocolate, and black toast bitterness. Smooth, almost creamy palate fades into a dry and tannic finish. The spicy hops remain to underscore a chewy, roasty aftertaste that is softened by a touch of caramel.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2004
Utra dark, hardly any light passes through my glass. The nose is sweet and full of molasses and sweet malt. The palate is grainy and flavorful. This is a nice and roasty porter with loads of coffee, chocolate, nuts, and malt. Long chocolate finish that lingers. This porter is full of flavor and very drinkable.

3fourths (8808) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2004
Aroma of sweet oats and vanilla, with some musty grains as well. Soft and milky initial mouthfeel, then a bit abrasive in the swallow. Creamy flavors of smoke, stout-like chocolate malts, and some vanilla. Not bad. Thanks to Suttree for sending the bottle.
