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

One of my new favorite beers. This one whee poured from a bottle into a pint, had a very dark, almost black coloring, with a light tan head. Stout flavor bitter but did not bite. Smooth with a pleasant after taste.
Nice lace on the rim, coffee and chocolate notes on the nose.
My only complaint is I didn't freeze the glass.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark, brown-to-black coloring, with a filmy, surface coating of light tan head. Aromas of lightly roasted coffee, crème highlights, and subtle chocolate notes. Very well balanced nose. Flavors are roasted and bittersweet forward, with a blast of coffee, crème, and hints of smoke. Chocolate highlights, with a solid bitter backbone. The body is light and dry, with a tangy sweet and roasted bitter aftertaste. The finish is roasted, dry, and with a slightly bitter linger. Solid, drinkable brew.
