COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust porter has a full body with some hints of chocolate from the chocolate malt and midnight wheat. The mild noble hop aroma showcases the roasty flavors and subtle fruit and spice notes of the artisan-roasted Fair Trade/Organic coffee of Black Mountain, NC’s Dynamite Roasting Co.

Suttree (5396) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2011
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.

jgb9348 (4986) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Nice deep dark brown coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted nuts, earth, caramel and a bit of cardboard. Medium-bodied; Deep roasty flavour with a ton of caramel, a lot of vanilla, some oak, a hint of bourbon and a nice rich coffee flavour. Aftertaste shows a good complexity with cream, nuts, medicinal flavours and a hint of pit fruits. Overall, a nice and full flavoured beer with some good and unexpected flavours. Not an out-of-this-world beer, but good for sure. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 04-January-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 05-March-2013.

Dry with bitter cocoa. Medium body. Long char-coffee finish. Not for sissies. A little sweetness and very light soapiness in the very end. Very good wit bacon and basil pizza. Bottle, Momo’s.
