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.

Nice deep brown/black pour with a foamy tan head. Coffee, malt, and some smoke in the aroma. Sweetness in the taste. Nice beer from Highland.

Straightforward but decent brew. Almost black with just a bit of red. The dark tan head holds its own throughout. Nose is mainly sweet malt with a bit of grain. Very creamy but maybe just a little thin in the mouth. Malt and choco sweetness tends toward candy, I’d like to have had a tad more roasty bitterness.

Dark brown with a skimming of milk chocolate foam.Has that Imperial Stout look.Has a nice mild roasted malt aroma.Much more flavorful than I had expected from the aroma.Has the nice roasted malt sbut a little kick of bitterness fir a finish.Not a thick beer but pleasant.This would be a good fall weather beer .

2004 bottle compliments of Jay (Springslicker) procured in an awesome trade, thanks! Dark black-brown color, mostly clear after it settles, with ruby highlights near the edges. Aroma of strong oats, light roast, some ash and perhaps brown sugar. Flavor is surprisingly very dry to start, but as it warms, some light caramel notes come on. Throughout there is ample oatmeal characteristic, smooth, creamy and lightly milky. Body is medium, with perhaps a touch of thinning. Dry barley on the finish. Low hop character, no alcohol. After it sits and warms fully, it is tremendously smooth, creamy and lightly sweet (toffee, caramel). Notes of more oats and a good amount of chocolate on the finish. Moderate carbonation. A bit too dry and less body than I would prefer overall.

Pours black with pretty large head. Smells like malt and chocolate. Smooth texture swallow with a weak watery finish. Thick aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small tan head. Notes of toffee and biscuits with lots of roasted malts and subtle hops. A nice porter.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2009
From tronraner via trade. The pour was standard dark brown with a short tan head that produced flecks of lacing. The aroma was roasted malt, brown sugar and slightly soapy. The flavor was light chocolate, roasted malt and some astringent soapiness. Thin to medium in body. Pretty average.

Bottle. Pours a dark, clear brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet malt mostly and some toasted malt notes. Flavor of light sweet malts, some roasted notes and toasted malt but mostly just sweet malt. Hmm, not really a fan of this one. It wasn’t bad but it was very sweet. To me, it was more of a brown ale than a porter. 6/4/7/3/12 (3.2/5)

poured dark brown with a quickly fading white head that left mediocre lacing. smells of roasted malt, and oats. taste is sweet and light to start with very little aftertaste.
