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.

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.

Quality, but not over the top crazy good. The best part of this beer is the palate.

Rustyham (1778) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Absolutely no smell. Sickly color of prune juice and totally flat-headless. Flavor is roast coffee and some smooth caramel. Palate is really smooth at first, silky and then a roasty smokey after taste. bottle from Whole Foods, Nashville.

HopKitty (59) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2010
This is flat, odorless, kind of translucent, looks like flat Pepsi. Tastes like roast coffee, a little chocolaty with rye. Taste does not last long. Bottle from Whole Foods, Nashville.

votzer (77) - Hixson, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle pours a rich mahogany brown, light tan head that quickly dissipates, nice sweet malty aroma that’s fairly light, watery mouth feel, burnt malt flavor, somewhat astringent bitter finish.

Pours a dark reddish brown, has a robust chocolaty mocha taste. Good porter. :-)

FatTony (175) - 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.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2011
From notes: Pours a dark chestnut brown color with amber/mahogany edges and a 1.5 finger foamy beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic lacing. Roasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate, oatmeal, caramel and nut. Slightly smokey/burnt smelling with faint earthy hops. Medium boded and very roasted, almost burnt tasting with an overly carbonated mouthfeel up front. Slightly smokey with hints of chocolate, caramel, nut and of course oatmeal. Slightly watered down and a bit too bitter for my liking with a dry finish. Decent but not something I would seek out again.
