I try to support Highland as often as possible, it being a local brew and all, but I really didn’t like this porter. I tend to enjoy porters, but this beer was extremely disappointing to me. Trying to pinpoint the issue, I think it might lie in the aftertaste.
Heavy on the pallet, dark and delicious. Not super bitter at all. Great mouthfeel, not as creamy as I like

Bottle from Harris Teeter, Hampstead, North Carolina. Extremely dark red with a small head. Its dark malts have a small grittiness to them, but no real roasted malts found here. There is a smoothness within its texture. voyageurmike (446) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2017
Draft at Growler USA. Dark brown full bodied beer. Dry taste of roasted malt, finishes mild. Unexciting. LearninBeer (604) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2017
The aroma is a little barnyard smell. Pours dark brown with beige head, mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is umami, not much to it. The body is medium/light, the texture thin, the carbonation lively and the finish abrupt. Doesn’t make it for me but this beer did sit in the fridge for awhile, raymow (1671) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2017
on tap at Grumpy Monks in Myrtle Beach - super dark in color. Not much aroma. A nice porter.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Carolina Ale House in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is mostly coffee and malt. The taste is very similar to the nose with some slight raisin flavor added. jflopsu (1626) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Pours dark brown with tan head. Has a roasted malt, coffee, and grain aroma. A taste of roasted malts, grains, coffee, and some chocolate. A dry grain and roasted malt aftertaste. Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2016
From mix 6 pack bought at Village Market (Harris Teeter’s yuppie division), Johns Island, South Carolina, tasted on July 22, 2016. Very dark brown/coffee color, nice roasted malt aroma with some chocolate, slick texture, toasted malt/chocolate/oat flavor significantly compromised by chemical taste and astringency.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The aroma has strong molasses and licorice notes. Leathery and herbal. This beer actually comes across a lot like a black ipa. Medium body and high carbonation. kerenmk (4802) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 29, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting at The Dancing Camel. Very dark brown. Vanilla, chocolate milk, soft roastiness aroma. Roasty, bitter, a little ash taste. Full body, roasty bitterness, ash finish. Nice!
