Pours very dark, with a nice khaki head. reveals ruby redness when held to a light. Smells good, chocolate, and coffee notes, malty. The mouthfell is alot thinner than i expected, but not bad. Its smooth, slightly creamy. The chocolate notes are on the palate as well as the nose but the coffee notes arent that strong. Its malty. Sweet, but not too sweet. You taste the hops a little. Overall: great brew in my opinion. I give this high praises. For the style, it was great. Wonderful with my meal. I enjoyed this beer

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A:
Pours a dark black-brown with a huge creamy tan head that rockily settles from four fingers to two. Excellent retention; spotty lacing.

S:
Sweet and malty. Molasses, dark fruit, licorice, nuts, vague herbal hops.

T:
Soft and smooth. Very nutty with some strong, quick bitterness on the finish. Nuts, bitter chocolate, Coke, coffee. Simple, but good.

M:
Medium bodied with some carbonation and a velvety feel on the whole. Very drinkable, and smooth (the oatmeal, methinks).

O:
Very nice porter.
The beer pours really nice, with a sturdy head and lots of it. It has a pretty subtle nose, but it does carry pleasant nutty and roasty aromas. The beer tastes really good and is all-in-all a very straightforward, tasty, drinkable beer.
Would have again; worth trying if you are around where it is brewed.

Oatmeal stouts and porters are my favourite beer styles so my reviews of these tend to be a little biased. This particular Oatmeal Porter has a beautiful black color and a small head as it should. Smells of coffee, grains, and a little chocolate. The taste is fantastic. I am a huge fan of Highland. This Oatmeal porter is delicious and I would highly recommend it to those who love dark, strong beer.
