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

A - A pitch black as night color, no clarity, and 1 tall finger of head. Nice tan lacing left on the glass. Impressive!

S - Roasted malts and chocolate are very prevalent. A touch of hop bitterness

T - Tasty! As expected by the appearance and nose. Chocolate, coffee beans, slight sweetness, which I like in my stouts. Well balanced.

M - Smooth. Medium carbonation. Creamy.

O - Best Highland brew I have had, by far. Excellent stout! Love it. WIll seek it out again

A - Dark. Typical of a stout, especially one with black mocha in its name. Poured with very thin had which dissipated quickly into a thin film. Slight lacing.

S - Smells really fantastic man. Smells like coffee and chocolate, with grapey notes as well. Smells hugely like coffee. Well...like a mocha latte or something >.>

T - Taste is also fantastic. Tastes pretty much how it smells. Coffee, chocolate, bit of darkc hocolate bitterness on the finish. You can definitely taste the lightly roasted malt too. I do taste a hint of dark fruit somewhere int here. It's slight, but it's there.

M - Average carb, full body

O - Very tasty, but really honestly nothing too special. I feel like I've drank it before when I had other stouts. Nothing really stand outtish.

Highland Black Mocha Stout has a very thick, beige head, a black (with brown highlights) appearance, and some web lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, very dark roasted (but, not burned) barley malt, coffee, cream, and chocolate. Taste is of those elements, with a noticeable bitterness, probably coming from the char. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Highland Black Mocha Stout finishes rich and delicious and semi-wet. RJT
