Highland Black Mocha StoutHighland Black Mocha Stout

Brewed by:
Highland Brewing
North Carolina, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Highland’s most robust beer, having a very malty body with a large, roasted chocolate flavor, all achieved solely through the use of special roasted barley grains. It is black in color with a very clean finish and moderate hop flavor.

While the porter style was developing, some brewers produced a stout porter and over time generated a new style known simply as stout. These beers traditionally contain a distinct roasted malt flavor and can run the gamut from a dry stout, such as Guinness to a sweet stout such as Watney’s Cream Stout. Our Black Mocha falls in the sweet stout range and derives its chocolate and coffee tones from the use of appropriate roasted malt grains and is very often used as an after dinner libation or an accompaniment to dessert.

A - Dark brown black with under a finger of tan fizzy head, tiny spots of lacing.
S - Rich dark chocolates, roasted malts, roasted coffee beans, a touch of vanilla bean.
T - Rich creamy and milky mocha flavor, lots of dark chocolate, coffee bean roasts, a little toffee malt.
M - Creamy and smooth at first, but fades fast.
O - Excellent display of a good coffee stout, could benefit from a little more sweetness and alcohol to make the flavor linger more, cause it is a welcoming taste.

this mocha stout isnt opaque- theres a small amount of brown when held to the light- thin tan lacing. the smell is slightly sweet with hints of chocolate. there is plenty of malt in the nose. the taste is malty with with hint of chocolate malts. the taste is pretty bold but there is a great smooth finish. this is a really good stout perfect for this time of year.
