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.

Stampion (154) - 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

Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle @ The Hare & Hound Pub, Landrum SC. This is a solid offering from a solid local brewery. I had it along with a Guinness beef stew (broke with convention and did NOT order a Guinness...) and it was ideal. One word to describe this beer overall: wonderful. Pleasant, enjoyable, smooth, silky, easy -- a great dinner companion.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Has a pleasant malty aroma. Nice deep brown body with a thin tan head. Flavor is kind of weak, slightly roasty, but not much to pick up on. Body and texture is kind of light. Overall, there’s not much character to this, and as a result, I don’t really care for it.

performula (148) - Heart of the Rockies, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Pours black with pretty large head. Smells like malt and chocolate. Smooth texture swallow with a weak watery finish. Thick aftertaste.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown with red undertones and an average sized tan creamy head. A sweet aroma but the taste is mostly hops and the chocolate flavor it claims to have is definitely muted. A bitter finish on the tongue. A decent beer but it was $ 9.00 for the 6 pack and a Yuengling black and tan is just as good.

Eckato (147) - Gulfport, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours a dark black with and awesome beige head....looking good... nice malty aroma...looking for some bread.....get hints of chocolate, was looking for it to be more malty in flavor, but yet really good.

kpresley77 (146) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is light roast and sweet malt. First taste is sweet roasted malt with a little vanilla hint. Finish is slightly sweet and roasted malt. Pretty good

bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Pours like a coke with no head and pour lacing. Full malty sweet aroma of caramel, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of fig. The flavor is decent, has a good grassy hop balance to the sweet malty taste. But this beer is just way too weak and tastes watered down. Very thin palate - it’s like this is a light porter.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 I enjoyed this beer... after a few sips I was dissapporinted. But the more I consumed, the better it got. A small but frothy head. A lillte bitter start, but a great chocolate roasted nut finish. Has a light hint of hops that flickers the tounge
