Another coffee beer?! As Mac from "Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia" often quips, "Youre Goddamned Right"! I bought a 12 pack of this from Sam's Blue Light in Durham, NC. On the side of the 12 pack, Sam's posted a sign that read "Lawsuit from AC/DC pending". I thought that was pretty fuckin funny.
Pours from the 12oz bottle into a pint glass an opaque black color with a half finger sized, creamy tan head. Lacing is decent and head retention is nice as well.
Aroma is beautifully coffee filled. Raw, fresh roasted, burnt toasty goodness. This is the kind of coffee aroma I like in my beers. Almost like espresso. Not a whole lot else but I dont really give a shit.
More coffee in the flavor, and more deliciousness. My only gripe about this bee is the rather thin and watery mouthfeel. Give this one some body and substance and you have something world class here. I still loved this beer and commend Highland for trying new stuff and always staying local when possible.

4.05/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: ½” creamy off white head, beer is nearly black—almost no light penetration. No carbonation bubbles visible.
Aroma: Coffee, Roasted Barley, Dark Chocolate
Mouthfeel: medium to heavy bodied, moderately carbonated, rich, finish is similar to dark coffee.
Flavor: A coffee infused porter that tastes exactly as advertised. Coffee/Expresso is the dominant flavor. In addition there is some chocolate malt, toffee, and a mild hop presence. I don’t pick up a great deal of fruit flavors as the brewer advertises, maybe some orange peel and a little raisin. Overall: very good cold weather beer, I would not be able to down this one in Summer. A give this beer a solid A grade for the style.
