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.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 This is one of the best seasonal offerings from Highland in some time. It?s got a pleasant, fresh coffe aroma that?s not overbearing. The coffe flavor is present & very nice, but it doesn?t dwarf the porter itself. I enjoy the fact of the organic products/brands that have gone into this--it let?s me know this brew has been loved and isn?t cheap. There?s some nice lacing down my glass, too. I?m currently drinking the draft version, but Ikve had bottles, as well (both are delicious). Taking into account Highland?s Oatmeal Porter, I can deduce that these guys have porters figured out in a major way!

하이랜드 브루 - 썬더스트럭 커피 포터 5.8% ABV 검게 로스팅한 맥아, 밀, 커피로 브루잉 한 커피 포터. 드라이한 커피향이 주를 이루며 . 단맛없이 인스턴트 커피를 탄듯한 단순한 커피향의 맥주. 커피는 공정무역을 통해 수입된 오르가닉 제품이라고 한다. 전반적으로 드라이 하고 라이트 한 편이라 초콜릿 케이크라도 곁들이고 싶은 맥주. 달달한 디저트류를 곁들이 좋을 듯 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

22 ounce bottle on the bus, backseat .. . pours dark brown .. light foam .. . some cheap coffee and brown bread crust .. light mouth, finish- like most highland beers .. . . then they would have been extremely uncomfortable and later on had the gnarly shit of their life.

bottle dated 12/13 to glass. Wonderful coffee aroma - one of the better coffee aromas... big dark brown froth head. Taste was better cold; as it warmed it seemed more watery and less flavorful. coffee was main flavor with roast....
