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 by far one of the best porters I have ever had. Nice roasted coffee flavor and aroma. It is the smoothest and best mouthfeel I have ever had. When you want a world class porter, look no further.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Aroma of currant, grape, black cherry, oats, molasses. Appears a deep, dark, almost opaque brown with hints of ruby when held to the light. Flavor is mild roast coffee and chocolate; no apparent flavor of oatmeal. Palate is medium-light, a bit slick, with mild effervescence. Overall, a superb underlying porter but dissapointing in the non-appearance of oatmeal flavor. Still, my thanks go to Jonathan for this fine North Carolinian brew.

finn1918 (232) - Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a one-finger light brown head that fades quickly and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is weak, but mostly chocolate malts. Taste is the same, with sweetness overcoming a very modest hop bitterness. Overall, this is a very solid beer, but nothing particularly noteworthy. I could go for a second of these.

Fantastic beer with some depth and it gets even better once it hits room temperature, coffee, some bitter chocolate very well balance! I loved it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a black body with tan head. A suprisingly lively beer. Nose is grapefruit. Roasty and coffee flavors. Malty. Moderately bitter finish.

Pours dark brown with a faint head. Smell is chocolate, A robust roasty flavour with light chocolate and hop characters, Not a bad porter. I had good judgement buying this beer.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2006
Nice crown head on top of the black body. A good amount of lacing. Typical aroma for a porter: coffee, burnt, toasted, but little in th eway of hops. Didn’t smell much that would label this an "oatmeal" porter. I would’ve expected a little more bread/dough aroma. Taste was good, but not great. A nice little bit of coffee in the long finish.

Stampion (223) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2012
A nice dark porter. Not as thick as you might expect. Slightly chocolately with a good balance. No real aftertaste, which is a positive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 Malty aroma with a bitter finish. Nice lacing down the glass. A hint of chocolate. Solid effort by Highland.
