This is outside of my style of brew but still very enjoyable. Taste and smell the coffee. Great, great ale.

Good crisp aroma with notes of coffee, vanilla, hazelnut. Dark brown almost black color. Malty bitter taste at the beginning with a very strong coffee taste (as expected), smooth finish with after notes of vanilla and almond and a hint of chocolate. Overall a well made porter

Tap. Pours a deep dark brown with thick toffee colored head. Aroma of coffee and roastiness. Taste of roasted malts with heavy coffee notes and hints of some sort of spice.

A: Very nice aroma. Bold dark roast coffee. Irony porter smell.
A: Pours looking a little thin. Head has some pretty big bubbles and sort of a dull brown color. Not mind blowing looks wise. Color is dark brown
T: Tastes like a porter. Lighter in body. Slight hints of coffee especially on the finish. Light on the taste. A bit acidic.
P: Acidic on the palate. Light. Some decent flavors but nothing bold.
Overall not a mind blowing beer but pretty good. Some nice coffee notes. Solid for a porter: seduce your friends who are afraid of dark beer with this one.

Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has fresh mild coffee and roastiness. Flavor has nice fresh roasty coffee...a light and faint spiciness that almost comes off as hot pepper. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a roasty/bitter coffee finish...just a hint of a burn...id swear there was hot pepper in this. Fairly one dimensional but tasty.

Highland strikes with a smooth, creamy, and coffee-laced treat. Didn’t hit all notes I would like, but a good showing. Serving: 12oz bottle

Bottle->tumbler. Deep brown with small offwhite head. Great coffee and malt aroma; taste is coffee with roasted and chocolate malt. Bittersweet coffee aftertaste is quite pleasant. Very good.

6 pack for 9.49. I’ve been waiting for this one all year. Pours black with a slight amber hue to it and a tan head. Really nice looking porter. Smells like coffee and a little roasted malt as well. Taste is pretty much the same; coffee and roasted malts. Body is medium, a little thinner than I like though. I won’t hold it against this beer simply because of how good it is. Definitely worth the wait.
