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.

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Almost a black pour, it is covered by a fading tan head. Mostly roast focused nose where biscuity, but burnt dark malts lean more towards chocolate than coffee. Nutty and leafy/earthy on the palate. The oatmeal contributes a certain roundness on this semi-thick ale with moderate carbonation. A competent dark ale, but more like a stout than a porter. Lacks a little maltiness. Finishes clean.

It pours dark brown with a brown head. There are moderate fruit aroma with Roast, chocolate, and some nut. There are flavors of roast and citrus with chocolate, oats, and nut. It has a moderate feel that is on the heavy side with a moderately high bitter finish. It has a fairly high level of carbonation. Overall it is a malt forward ale with a pleasant balance of citrus hops.

Bufordbrewer (35) - Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Dark brown, tan head. Don’t get any smoothness you would expect of an oatmeal. Mild chocolate flavor, sweetness a little, followed by a little bitterness on the tail end.

OrthoDoc (185) - South Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2016
At the brewery : Nice smell of chocolate and medium roast. Taste is the same with medium-light mouthfeel. Easy drinking porter but on the lighter side so good for warmer days maybe. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
