Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

I've been impressed with the Highland brews I've had recently, hoping this one keeps the trend. It looks the part, pouring a pretty solid black with a small head. The aroma is very roasty, with roasted malts, coffee, and a little bit of a chalky smell. The taste is also good, offering a solid amount of coffee flavor over the roasted malt base of the porter. There's really not much else to report taste-wise, but it's done very well. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with just a touch of prickliness, and the drinkability is good. Overall, it's a good coffee beer.
