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.

Acquired via trade. My favorite of the Highland brews (so far). Pours a very dark brown with a medium and pretty tan head. Little lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and nuts. Medium bodied with a nice roasty blend of chocolate and espresso (which would be a mocha I guess). Finish is a little nutty and a little hoppy. Pretty good.

On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Hoppy porter. Stouty in finish. Lots of lace fresh, Highland is coming to the taps here big-time.

Bottle. Dark chocolate and molasses malt aroma. Dark brown color with small head. Strong chocolate malt flavor with a slight burnt grain and hops finish. Nice full palate which is closer to a stout in mouthfeel. A great porter.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 9, 2009
355 mL as a bonus from dkachur! Pours a deep amber- definitely not black- with a very thin, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a smidgen of lacing. Aroma is chocolate malt, a little roasted malt, some toffee and brown sugar. Taste is lots of brown sugar, milk chocolate. Way too sweet for me. Very oily palate.

rosenbergh (9163) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draught at the Barley's, Asheville, NC. Dark reddish brown almost black colour with a small light tan head. Roasted malt, sweetness, mild coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma. Roasted malt, sweetness and mild hops in the flavour. Decent porter. A bit less sweetness and it'll be great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (9102) - 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.

jercraigs (9046) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2008
2008-10-14. Black body with brown around the edges, decent tan head. (4+) Dusty malt n the aroma, light sweet and roasty malt hints at licorice, very mild herbal touches. (7+) Similar flavour, dry cocoa kissed dusty malt, light herbaceous touches. (7+) Average to thin bodied palate is quite thin for a porter and probably the only significant flaw for me. Pleasant.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle shared by pilsnerpeter. Deep black beer. Aroma is fairly interesting. Chewy soft aroma. A bit of caramel and toast. Some charred sugar and a bit of light treacle. Flavour is a bit strange though. Lightly plasticy and sweet with a strange slickness that I’m not really a fan of. Sort of orangey. It tastes like they added patent malt to a scottish ale recipe.

3fourths (8801) - 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.
