Highland Oatmeal Porter

Disappointed. The body had a lot of red highlights and was quite transparent around the edges – I like to see a fuller body. It was poured for me with virtually no head, so subsequently there was no lacing, but I am sure this beer, if poured correctly, can look much better than it did on this ocassion.

Distinct lack of aroma, again probably due to the ridiculously cold serving temperature. Quite a thin mouthfeel, without any coating on the tongue or teeth.

The taste? Well it went from a bitterish, hoppy beginning to what I found to be an ultra sweet ending. The sweetness seemed artificial too, almost to the point of a clawing nastiness.

I would give this another try, perhaps from the bottle, and perhaps in another bar where they can present it better, but for now this was a let down.
