Highland Brewing Company Oatmeal Porter
What can I say, I couldn't resist picking up a beer with a name like that!
I'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!
