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.

Jlo7399 (218) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Pours black with a thin light head and good lacing. Smells roasty. Tastes very roasty with a little dark chocolate bitter/sweetness. Thinner mouthfeel than expected, but a pleasant surprise. Enjoyable.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2005
bottle. poured out an enticing rich, super dark rugby, nearly black. Foamy tan head, lasted and laced nicely. initial chocolatety malt that turns to toasted, roasted finish. The hops were not very prevalent in the finish but it has a nice overall finish. I liked how the malt was not very sweet and highlighted the toasted flavor.

firemarshal (203) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle. Poured a very dark brown with minimal tan head. Great chocolate coffee aroma. Taste was everything I hoped for. Great malty flavor balanced well by the dark roast. Initial sweetness fades to light bitter aftertaste, but smooth overall. Good stuff.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Pours near black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted sweetened coffee. Taste is more of roasty chocolate. Hops are restrained for a lighter finish. Creamy but thin. A decent offering.

Well I enjoyed this beer directly after having the Stout. This was a deal more malty and sweet via the Oatmeal but tasted entirely too similar to the Highland Stout. I enjoyed this, but it isnít there best brew.

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2013
P: Pours a carbonated opaque dark mahogany with a fast fading tan head. Marshy air bubbles are left behind on the glass edge. S: Aroma is sour dough, smelly sneakers, roasted oatmeal, figs, sugar sprinkled prunes, brown sugar, cumin and salted crackers. T/M: Bitter prunes, molasses covered oats, burnt brown sugar/caramel and finishes dry with stale coffee and dark chocolate. Carbonation is quite assertive in the medium body. O: The first time I had this on tap I really enjoyed it and wanted to try but again. Itís just as good as the first time. Really great roasty malt with sugar and bitterness to round out a nice oatmeal porter. This is my first oatmeal porter but Iím eager to enjoy more. Cheers!

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 17, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear but nearly opaque dark brown with reddish highlights and a strong, sticky light tan head that leaves good spotty lacing. The aroma bursts of piney hops on the pour, but balances more toward light chocolate, roasty malts and nuts thereafter. Flavor is mostly chocolatey, roasted malts, wood/light smoke and nuts with a nice balance of piney hops, which combine for a dry but not acrid finish. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation moderately high. Sort of a cross between a brown and robust porter in style. Solid and sessionable...this has always been one of my favorite Highlands offerings.

FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2011
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.
