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.

Dark brown colored, foamy brown head. Pilsner malt dominates the aroma with grassy tones and hints of roast. Roasted and chocolaty flavor with little hop and grassy tones. Rather thin for a stout.

Pours a dark brown, small off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, and a little oatmeal. Flavor is tasty, chocolate and oatmeal, very nice balance.

This was a very good oatmeal porter. Very sweet and dark. Great texture not as thick as a stoudt as reflected by the porter tag and that adds to the goodness.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 not much aroma. balck in color with brown head. too thin for a porter especially with oatmeal in the ingredients. nothing stands out. nothing much here. 3/14/08 - black but not opaque. small head. aroma is a little on weak side but has notes of chocolate. flavor is better than i remember with lots of milk chocolate and coffee. sugary but not too sweet.

this was recommended to me by the 21 year old bar tender as his favorite. pours dark and had a sparse tan head. little to no noteable nose. mouth feel was medium bodied with little roasted malt characters. suble hop feel . very thin and dead for a porter. maybe they added a half a pint of water to mine.

Courtesy of Springslicker <P> Aroma was pretty low intesnity though I didnít give it very long to warm Iíd stille xpect more aroma than this. Faintly roasty with a bit of green tobacco. Deep black with a quickly fading mocha head. Fore is roasted malts and coffee..no real chocolate notes though I get hints of darker fruits. Palate is a bit thin and it rolls into the flavor which makes the finish slightly watery. Highland might be the one brewery that has beers I really like a lot that arenít porters or stouts. I thinkt he Tasgall is very nice, but the Porter and Stout, to me, were lacking.

Pours a dark dark dark ruby brown with a nice dash of tan head. Nose is roasty with malts and a nice hop under current. Flavor is roasty and malty, but not as pronounced, with a nice hop follow through. Well balanced between sweet and bitter.

Bottled thanks to Sumdog. Poured a clear, medium iced tea/amber with a tall cap of beige head. Nose was of toasty biscuits, semi-sweet chocolate, and soapy floral hoppage.. medium roast and rather weak. Flavor was primarily of the same roasty chocolate with coffee and leafy bitters surrounding the tongue. Cola-like mouthfeel with a lighter body didnít flow as well as Iíd like... and the roasted chocolate finish kinda fizzes out. OK overall, but no shining star in the porter world.

Thanks to Caliber for this one. He made me promise to write a review in exchange for this one. Dark caramel with a creamy head. Chocolate aroma and some yeasty fruitiness. Palate is creamy as well, Iíd suspect from the oatmeal. Very well-rounded. I like my porters a bit more robust than this one but I canít say that Iím disappointed. A good beer for most occasions.
