Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours jet black and thick with a sticky khaki colored head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Luxuriant aroma with plenty of strong black coffee notes, some bittersweet chocolate. Flavor has some hints of licorice, a bit of creosote, strong espresso, bittersweet dark unsweetened chocolate and a back end of potting soil. Nice dry mouthfeel. Extremely enjoyable.

Bottle. Dark, dark brown, with little to no head. The aroma is awesome ... full of all kinds of roasty chocolate and coffee. This drinks like it should, too, for a coffee porter ... big, chewy notes of rich, nutty java. Delicious! (#4824, 11/18/2012)

Man, I love beers with coffee in ’em. Absolutely love ’em. This one by Highland doesn’t really bring any innovation to the genre, but it’s still delicious and well made. I could drink a lot of this. Sampled at Knoxville brewer’s jam. 2011.

Bottle. Dark black not much head retention. Aroma is nice amounts of coffee. Light chocolate.
Flavor is bitter coffee bean that just turned. Light caramel and a weak hop in the back ground. Really bitter. Pretty astringent and basic.
