12oz bottle from Lowes in Hickory. Blackish pour with a tan head and tight sheets of lacing. Aroma is pleasant roasted coffee and chocolate. Tastes follow suit with cocoa bitter, earthy, little vanilla. Sharp, slightly tinny texture. 7.2

12oz bottle pours a watery black with some thin, creamy off white head. Nose is very nutty, coffee grounds, mocha, bread crust, some raisin, cola. Flavor has lots of soured coffee, sweet malt, cracker, toast, a little toasted almond. Watery finish. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Light coffee aroma with roasted malt and chocolate. Thick, roasted coffee taste with some chocolate in the background. Pretty solid brew. Always been a fan of Highland.

envane (586) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Barely translucent dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of coffee grounds and piney hops. Taste is dry, with a bitter hop and coffee grounds finish. Just not into coffee-grindy coffee beers.

dlovell2 (2289) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Early Christmas present from a friend. Dark brown with a tan head. Smokey,Roasted malt aroma with coffee and vanilla and coffee notes and some pine from hops. Creamy feel in mouth. Sweet vanilla caramel start. Then a roasted malt and dark coffee flavor finish. One of the best names for a beer I’ve seen

reverendj (198) - Brunswick, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Predominately coffee aroma enhanced by the hints of earthy hops. Deeply black color capped by a moderate nutmeg head. Smooth coffee up front chased by mild chocolate with a nice roastiness on the finish. Decadent enough to serve with a warm chocolate desert. GREAT BEER !

Bottle into shaker. Jet black with tan dense head. Coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasty, slightly spicy aroma. Predominant taste is chocolate, with coffee, roasted nuts, cloves. Chewy palate with a bit of spice and carb. Excellent.
