12oz bottle ----> tulip. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head and mild lace. Aroma is sweet, creamy oatmeal and roast. Taste is oats, chocolate, and mild licorice. Typical fairly thin porter mouthfeel, lightly carbonated. A very solid porter.

Caramel-coloerd head with moderate retention. Beer is dark brown, almost black, slight tinge of red when held up to bright light. Full-bodied and richly-flavored while still being smooth. Not as intense as many other porters. I think the presence of the oatmeal mellows it out. Maybe it isnt truly representitive of porters, but I dont care...I like it.

finn1918 (233) - Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a one-finger light brown head that fades quickly and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is weak, but mostly chocolate malts. Taste is the same, with sweetness overcoming a very modest hop bitterness. Overall, this is a very solid beer, but nothing particularly noteworthy. I could go for a second of these.

donrajin (233) - Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, USA - MAR 17, 2005
This is by far one of the best porters I have ever had. Nice roasted coffee flavor and aroma. It is the smoothest and best mouthfeel I have ever had. When you want a world class porter, look no further.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Aroma of currant, grape, black cherry, oats, molasses. Appears a deep, dark, almost opaque brown with hints of ruby when held to the light. Flavor is mild roast coffee and chocolate; no apparent flavor of oatmeal. Palate is medium-light, a bit slick, with mild effervescence. Overall, a superb underlying porter but dissapointing in the non-appearance of oatmeal flavor. Still, my thanks go to Jonathan for this fine North Carolinian brew.

Pours dark brown with a faint head. Smell is chocolate, A robust roasty flavour with light chocolate and hop characters, Not a bad porter. I had good judgement buying this beer.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2006
Nice crown head on top of the black body. A good amount of lacing. Typical aroma for a porter: coffee, burnt, toasted, but little in th eway of hops. Didnt smell much that would label this an "oatmeal" porter. I wouldve expected a little more bread/dough aroma. Taste was good, but not great. A nice little bit of coffee in the long finish.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 Malty aroma with a bitter finish. Nice lacing down the glass. A hint of chocolate. Solid effort by Highland.

Pours a dark brown with a thin white lacing. Charred, roasted malt aroma. Earthy, roasted malt, peanut, bitterness taste. Good beet
