Quite a bit of caramel, though light and crisp, and a soft amount of hops. Has a slight spiciness that is reminiscent of cola. All in all, a peculiar beer, but good.

Thanks to Blake for this one. Brown bodied, tan head. Nice spiced chocolate nose, caramel as well. The flavor is a creamy chocolate, and is lightly spiced, deliciously smooth and velvety. A slight it thin for the flavor but very nice all around.

Pours a medium brown with a small head. Aroma is of chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is melted vanilla ice cream with some chocolate syrup mixed in. Short finish with little aftertaste. Thanks to Brandon for this one.

I really enjoyed this. From a bomber, pours a deep reddish-mahogany, with half-inch off white head that gradually disspates into a ring of foam. Nose is nutmeg and pine, with some light caramel malts coming through. Taste is very spicy...I detect a touch of almond, and a hint of spiced cider. Good offering from Highland.

Wasnt a huge fan of this one though it came out of a single batch cask and may have just been an off batch. The maltiness of this one seemed to beer overpowered by the whisky aroma. Reminded me of a watered-down boiler-maker. I will most likely try this one again and re-rate it.

Bottle. Thanks to my Secret Santa. Pours a deep red with hardly any head. Scents of spice on the nose. Delicious spiced fruit cake with some marshmellows and vanilla flavoring. Maybe my favorite winter to this point.

Pours out a deep drark red with a a huge tan head. Aroma is sweet as can be with caramel and spice. Taste is interesting, heavy on the vanilla and cinnamon as well as nutmeg. Good lord this is sweet and spicy!!! I have to say up front that Im not a big fan of hugely sweet beers. For this reason, I cant rate this beer very high, however I must say that this beer would be much better if I had split the bottle with two or three people instead of trying to drink it myself. Too much sweetness is sometimes not a very good thing.

sampled at the San Diego Strong Ale Festival Nov 2008, an event shared with what seemed liked hundreds of ratebeerians and enjoyed mostly through a straw, since my face was a bloody mess of scabs and stitches. this came from the RB table full of bottles. I think BBB63 may have brought this one, but Im not sure. the day was starting to get hazy at this point, and for some reason this bottle was going basicly untouched. The nose was very heavy on the cimamon, which i guess was a turn off for many. it was very malty with tons of vanilla and cimanom, it also had a slightly grainy texture, probably form the massive amount of malt in this. i thought it was great. like cinmon toast crunch. hopefully you like breakfest ceral for beer.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Wow, Highland just never ceases to amaze. Deep brown with a medium off-white head that retained throughout. Flavor was mildly hoppy with not as much spice as Id anticipated, but a lot of cherry flavor that made this one very interesting. Ive now collected the whole set from Highland, and theyve all been great. Bravo.

Pours a reddish brown with a tan head. Has hints of caramel, spices, nuts, vanilla, and some dark fruit. Finishes light and clean on the palate.
