Aroma was pretty low intesnity though I didn’t give it very long to warm I’d stille xpect more aroma than this. Faintly roasty with a bit of green tobacco. Deep black with a quickly fading mocha head. Fore is roasted malts and coffee..no real chocolate notes though I get hints of darker fruits. Palate is a bit thin and it rolls into the flavor which makes the finish slightly watery. Highland might be the one brewery that has beers I really like a lot that aren’t porters or stouts. I thinkt he Tasgall is very nice, but the Porter and Stout, to me, were lacking.

Reviewed from notes.
Served in Pint glass.

Another bottle courtesy of JohnQVegas. Thanks Dustin.

Pours a deep dark brown with reddish hints in the legs. Good 2 finger head with 2 finger head, decent retention and some lace left behind. Deep red in color as I look more and more...

Smells of roasted chocolate malts, caramel malts, and black malts. Nothing too mindblowing. No hop presence, but it is a porter!

The finish is kind of dry.

The body is unimpressive. I was hoping the oats would rocket this thing into amazing territory, but no dice. It feels flat and dull. Medium fullness.

I guess I could drink this... but why bother?

Black with off white thick head; quickly fades.

Nose is sweet black chocolate; hints of maple and sweet coffee.

Mouthfeel thin and watery without character.

Flavors are short, simple, unassertive and light of weak coffee and weak chocolate. Weak roasted grains. Potential but falls short. Not bad and actually pretty drinkable but very simple with a nice light weak bitter coffee finish.

Average in the extreme.
