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.

Lighten up people, this is a good brew. Toasted bread, wet dog, and a touch of floral hoppiness on the pour. Reddish hues when swirled and held up to the light as well as the colour of burnt motor oil in the tulip. Not as creamy as I expected but it has teeth. Solid roastiness with light smokiness joined by hints of chocolate and a decent hop balance. Highland is one of Asheville’s gems and an up and comer.

Pours dark brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and toasted malts. Taste is pretty much the same, big roasty malts. Almost stout like, but a little thinner. Easy to drink. Very good!

bottle at tasting. Nice brown color and good carbonation.Aroma was very creamy. I thought the flavor on this one was a bit lacking for a porter. Kind of coffee like and a hint of chocolate. It was a smooth one and I could make an evening of this beer but I’m not sure I would spend the money.

Pours a dark rich amber color with a thick creamy head. Aroma of coco and malt. Flavors of bitter sweet chocolate and malt, slight smokey after taste. Overall good porter

Thin tan head on a brownish black pour. Coffee, malty and toasty aroma. Smooth mouth feel. A nice easy drinking, quaffable porter.

BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2008
The nose of this beer is nice considering the notable hop aroma. Hints of oatmeal, chocolate and biscuit. Flavor is more of the same with light carbonation. Poor head retention. Thinner body. Sour, roasty finish. Not bad.

Served from tap into a standard pint. Pours a dark dark dark brown almost black with a one finger light tan head. Maintains nice lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of nutty and malt notes. The flavor was of coffee, oatmeal, and malt. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a very nice porter. The flavors were quite a nice blend and none were overpowering as to mask the other.

12 ounce bottle- poured out a promising shiny black with a thick tan head. Aroma was sweet, including cherries and malt. Palate was thin, a little disappointing. Taste was average, earthy and thin. Average.

What a pleasant find in the good ole Bi-Lo in Clemson, South Carolina. This is the best beer I have been able to find without going to a beer specialty store to purchase it. Extremely rich oatmeal porter that pours nicely, has a pleasant aroma, decent carbonation for a porter, and a fabulous yet intimidating appearance. Slight chocolate hints with a more dominant oatmeal flavor than Sammy Smith’s. I hope they keep re-stocking this in the grocery store because this is by far the best beer I’ve had from the Carolinas...
