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.

Bottle pour opaque dark brown with moderate tan head. Nose lots of coffee, roasted malt, but a slightly odd earthy undertone. Taste mostly coffee then dark roast, hint of dark fruit. Light bitterness.

ABC PCB growler. Gorgeous brown pour with a foamy, tan head that lasts forever. Big roasty aroma with a hint of coffee. Nice flavor that hints at coffee but also reminds me of roasted peanuts. Nice.

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of coffee, some roasted malts with light notes of caramel and chocolate, hints of bitterness from hops, and some light dough. Flavor the same but it has a very nice balance of coffee and the beer. Average texture and carb. A pretty good beer, that was actually better than I was expecting.

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....

Black pour with a nice tan head that quickly fades. Aroma of coffee with a touch of lactose. Mmmm ... sweet flavor of chocolate covered espresso beans with a slight bitter finish. Thick mouthfeel with a tingly carbonation underneath. Another well crafted Highland brew.

Pitch black with very little head. Aroma contains some chocolate and coffee. Flavor is rather bitter with some coffee, dark chocolate, and licorice. Full bodied and bitter. Overall a good beer.

Great black pour with fading tan head. Nice roasty clean fresh coffee aroma, some vanilla. Flavor has more of the roast grounds bitterness and not as much balance. Meh. One of the better coffee beers out there, but I’m not a fan of coffee.

Bottle. Pours pretty much black, with faint ruby hints coming through when held to the light. Rocky, mocha-colored head that recedes to about 1/4 inch. Nose is very smooth, well-roasted coffee, a bit of dark bread, slight hop bite. Taste is lightly sugared coffee, big bitter chocolate, piney hop presence. Lingering finish. Glad Highland finally released a new brew. This is very nice.

Bottle courtesy of durhambeer!
Pours basically black with a small but well retained head that leaves small bits of lacing on the glass.

The beer has a nice roasty and fruity smell. The coffee is vibrant and pungent and not unlike walking into my dearest Zanzibar’s Coffee house here in town while the roaster is doing her thing.

The flavor is roasty and bitter with a little bit of creamy sweetness. The beer isn’t overly sweet but does have a little bit of ashy-ness.

The palate is a little bit think but the low carbonation serves the flavor perfectly.
