3.8/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Nice dark, stout like appearance, small amount of head, lacing is light.

Smell - Roasted dark malt dominates the nose, slight smoke smell as well.

Taste - Roasted malt flavor also dominates the taste, with a hint of oats on the back-end. Also getting chocolate in the middle, with little to no bitterness (nice!). Chocolate also lingers well after consumption. Very good tasting brew.

Mouthfeel - Medium to light carbonation, about spot-on for this style. Not too much as far as body goes with it falling in the medium to light range. Makes it easy to drink quickly though!

Overall - This was my first brew from the Highland Brewing Company thanks to a good friend of mine who brought me some from out of state (thx Wendell!). I was impressed with the drinkablity of this brew as it wasn't too bitter, not too heavy, and promoted a nice roasty, chocolaty taste throughout. Might be a little better with more of an oat profile, but overall a very nice brew!
