Pours a very clear copper brown with a thin tan head. Medium bodies smooth. Malty fruity aroma. Sweet toasted malt with a bit of a berry finish?

Bottle from J Emerson. Copper with nice head and lacing. Smells like raisin bread and maybe a little like play doh. Very sweet, almost like cream soda. Creamy bodied, too. A little bitter/sour creeps in at the end. Quick3Beers (1234) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Pours a rich brown from a bottle, medium off-white head. Caramel nose, similar flavor with a bit of cola finishing somewhat bitter. Good beer. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 Choco-cherry vanilla maltiness in the aroma and flavor -- like a dessert brown ale. Graham crackers. The flavor came off rather artificial and the vanilla notes held on longer than necessary. I didn’t get a whole lot of the spice. Medium-heavy body. Red-brown, clear with a clingy seafoam head. Tannic. I was a little disappointed with this one, will give it another try while I’m up here on vacation. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle, thanks to hopdog for sharing this one. Aroma is very piney with other spices, light nutmeg and ginger. Taste had too much bite at first but waited for it to warm on my tongue and got smoother. Intresting brew.

Bottle. Pours a brown-copper body with a small white head. The aroma is heavily cookiesh with lots of spice (namely root/sarsaparilla). Thinnish, calm body with all of that spice flavour that was in the aroma. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2009
(PPSG09, 1L bottle, thanks wilkie) Medium off-white head atop clear copper body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, orange/plum. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, raisin, light orange, faint smoke. Medium body, easy drinking. CheersMate (1343) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Picked this up in Athens, Georgia. Five Points Bottle Shop, 22 oz. Plus, as an added bonus it was only $2.50! Nice fluffy head that fades away to a nice thin head that sits on top of a deep dark brown translucent beer. Looks like a friggin good spice/herb/vegetable to me. Sweet aroma, but I am a bit upset that the spices don’t hit my nose harder. If this is a spice/herb/vegetable beer then I am a little confused as to where the spices are, at least, in the aroma. Anyways, a semi-sweet caramel aroma, and that is about it. Ok, now I am picking up a SLIGHT spice aroma, but nothing special. The flavor was a surprise. Very sweet sugar/malt flavor. Slight spice flavor, but really nothing special. Very big malt taste, but the spices are far too muted for me to give this a great rating. Slight bittering hop at the end, with a slight spice tingle, but not enough to save this beer. Very smooth texture. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2009
@Pilsner Petes East Coast Gathering-1L bottle-pours an off white head and amber color. Aroma is sweet medium malt-caramel, secondary spice hops. Taste is sweet medium malt-caramel, secondary herbal hops. Thanks argo0 for sharing. RealPoser (40) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Slight spice on the nose... but otherwise very unremarkable. Medium body with nice roasty-sweet malt notes. Hint of nutmeg and toasted walnuts. Finish brief, but pleasant. Again... all in all, and ok seasonal, but I have come to expect more from Highland.
