A surprisingly good porter, it's a chocolate, the smell and fragrance of roasted coffee with a slight Whitdale finish nice carbonation. I would drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tarry, creosotic aroma. Dep clear cola brown-black. Standard US longneck, good label. Quick cascade and one-finger, lasting tan head in a pint. Good. Acidic coffee, chickory, toasted soy nuts. Dry with bitter cocoa. Medium body. Long char-coffee finish. Not for sissies. A little sweetness and very light soapiness in the very end. Very good wit bacon and basil pizza. Bottle, Momo’s.

Draft pint at Mela Asheville. I think coffee porter is a great concept like a nice expresso. Smooth with a coffee bean bite. One of the better offerings I have had from Highland. Chocolate, coffee, toast, roasty, dough, leather, earthy, butterscotch. Will drink again when available.

Bottle shared by a friend. Darkest brown in color with a thin tan head. Malty and grainy nose with coffee notes. Malty and sorta watery flavor with a roasty finish.

A great balance on the coffee flavor. It sits nicely on the palate without dominating the flavor.

Pours a jet black with fluffy tan brown head. Nose and taste is all coffee in the front and a bit of a tart finish. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (11222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Tap at House of Beer in Orlando. Dark pour with a light brown head. Fantastic roasted coffee, with a bit of caramel and chocolate. Rich coffee grounds on the nose. Excellent.

aplus01 (71) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Dark brown in color with minimal head. Aroma is roasty malt and muted coffee notes. Taste is less coffee than anticipated and mostly roasted malt. Seemed a bit thin on the palate. Maybe due to a higher than expected amount of carbonation. Porters arent my favorite style and this isnt my favorite porter. Not recommended.
