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.

This is the only real porter that I can drink and enjoy every last sip. I savor this beer from the minute I get it until the minute it is gone. It is great on tap or bottled. I drink it faster on tap though. Highly recommend it to people that like light or dark beers.

My 100th rating! On tap at the Foundry. Opaque black body with tinges of red around the edges, with a creamy thick tan head; a pleasure to look at. Sweet, smoky aroma of coffee and bitter chocolate. Flavor is likewise big and malty, with excellent chocolate/espresso notes and a great roastiness. Thick, luscious, and creamy in my mouth, this beer really satisfies. Yum.

I really enjoyed this beer. Pours a very dark color that is simply a joy to look at. Head is a Guinnessy tan color that dissipates quickly but smells completely amazing. The aroma’s range from a dark chocolate to a molasses and brown sugar and the flavor matches nearly perfectly. A perfect beer that reminds me of grandma’s oatmeal/chocolate-chip cookies. In my mind, this is exactly the kind of thing to look for from a good local southern brewery. Highly reccomended and a beer I will definately look for in the future.

Not a bad brew at all. Thick like molasses nice tan head about a 1/4 in thick. Flattens out. Nose is pretty rusty smelling. Subdued chocolate and maybe just a hint of brown sugar and oats...mainly just roasty. Flavors are well balanced. The roasted grains and the hops really do compliment each other very well. Roasted, bitter, and with that medicine like sweetness that oatmeal gives off I like this its not bad at all. Would love to see an amped up version of it. G-rat

Bottled, thanks SpringsLicker! Transparently black, lasting head. Grapefruit aroma. Dry and very aromatic with soft mouthfeel. The finish is really salty with good bitterness.

Pours porter color except for the lack of head. Aroma of typical porter except for a bit if tin. Taste is very malty with a bittersweet chocolate. Perhaps they use a very high quality chocolate. Very smooth with a bit of a lively mouth. Nice.

I am a huge porter fan and Highland’s unique porter deserves a lot of praise. Very rich flavor and not watered down as some recent porters have become.

Hm, never had an oatmeal porter! Thin head with good lacing. Aroma is of some dark fruit, maybe plums. Body is ok, but could use some beefing up. Very roasty with some serious chocolate malt at the end, along with a striking burnt taste that sits at the top of your throat. Adequate hopping as well. Fun beer.
