I feel like the boys at Highland tried to carry this beer a little too far. It’s on the verge of being a great stout, but they must have added an extra scoop or two of grains. The result is a full-bodied beer with, sadly, a slightly chalky undertaste.
Pours up dark black, with a practically non existent tan head. Aroma was coffee and malts. Flavor matched the smell, coffee and chocolate with almost no hops coming through at all. Enjoyable, I would buy this again. nasty3939 (30) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2017
On tap at Tapworks. A good chocolate coffee stout whose aroma is matched by its flavor. Solid and always a good choice but there are some excellent beers in this profile. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Pours a very dark brown color with khaki colored head. Roasted malt, chocolate, and some caramel sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a lot of roasted malt flavors. A solid stout. weitz15 (585) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Thick oily pour with a medium creamy tan head. Robust roasted malts accompanied by a medium toffee flavor. The aroma just isn’t there to match the flavors in this brew. Overall, enjoyable roasted stout. solidfunk (8965) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Light roast and some coffee and light cream. Some caramel. Decent tangy finish. Decent balance. Bottle.

A hearty stout, with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee. Full, rich. Great in summer or winter. Goes well with just about any meal or solo. CraftBeerNick (2568) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2016

12 ounce bottle purchased at Outer Banks grocery. Chocolate, roasted coffee flavor. Very little bitterness aftertaste. Medium body, one quarter inch tan head with a little lacing. Very pleasant and drinkable stout, one of their better offerings. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours a nice jet black color, with a creamy reddish brown head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and smoke. Flavor is a nice blend of coffee and chocolate with a nice bitter smoke aftertaste.
