This is a style that a lot of people get right. Highland is no exception. The beer pours dark mahogany with a medium to small head. The aroma is very good and true to the style with rich chocolate and coffee mixture and malt. Medium body with a watery texture. Green apple notes on the front end, but the taste is quickly overwhelmed by coffee bean and burnt toast. Reservedly sweet. Bitter finish with a slightly tanic aftertaste. A good beer. Refreshing with plenty of flavor without being too heavy.
On tap at Craft Brewed, pours a deep dark brown / black with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of cocoa upfront, with a touch of coffee. Flavour is fairly chocolatey, with light coffee undertones. Dry palate, with a lightly sweet and cocoa-y finish. Nicely made. willisread (3799) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2017
Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a pitch black with a finger of beige head that lingers. Lots of bakers chocolate in the nose, faint coffee notes. Well balanced. Dryish finish with lingering cacao and coffee. Well made. arn8897 (455) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Pours a deep brown to black khaki head. Aromas of malt and chocolate. Taste the same very smooth and malty. Nice beer. Light to medium mouthfeel. Bacchus66 (999) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours thick dark brown with a full tan head. Lots of roasted and chocolate notes, flavors the same featuring dark malts, coffee, chocolate. Nice thick texture and a delicious chocolate, roasty finish. Very nice. HourGlass13 (1096) - 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 (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 (622) - 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 (9720) - 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. partchapol (143) - Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2016
One of good Highland beers. Smell of chocolate, coffee. Taste of bitter stout, cofee, dark, medium body, somewhat slimy texture. Good one.
