What can I say, I couldn't resist picking up a beer with a name like that!

Highland Oatmeal PorterI'm in Atlanta drinking beer from North Carolina!

This time around I'm sharing Highland Brewing Company's Oatmeal Porter.  I'm a big fan of dark beers though I usually tend to avoid them at this time of year... Summer is more for IPA's than Porters!  But HBC's Oatmeal Porter is a bit different from most...

A lot of porters tend to be a bit on the bitter side - the flavour of the Highland is quite smooth though with that great almost coffee finish and a well balanced taste.  Definitely an easy drinker!  It doesn't have as wild a body as some Porters, but I think a strong Porter is really an acquired taste.  This beer is a great place to get yourself started in the world of beers you can barely see through!

Highland Brewing Company has a few other interesting titles in their library - if I had more time here I think I'd be seeking out their Black Mocha Stout for a taste.  Next trip to ATL perhaps!
