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.

HourGlass13 (780) - North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2017
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.

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 (2763) - 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 (569) - 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 isnt there to match the flavors in this brew. Overall, enjoyable roasted stout.

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.
