Highlander Oatmeat porter: A fresh twist your'e thinking, yeah maybe. This oatmeal porter certainly has a lighter feel than a stout, yet it's hefty, and tasty. I've always enjoyed the extra bit of sweetness garnered from having oatmeal in a beer, and this certainly had that unmistakable nose of oatmeal. It was smooth to drink, and a great winter beer. Certainly decent enough for the colder snowy nights we had in NC. B-.
Peacemaker Pale: A decent light pale with a crisp smooth taste. I enjoyed it, but it didn't have ay outstanding features that would draw you back again. It's an easy drinker and an ok beer. C+.
Celebrator: My second favorite Doppel, It's got a huge flavor, and a great nose. It will knock your taste buds out for a minute, it's one of the greatest Doppelbocks I've ever had. Second in my heart to Salvator, only due to nostalgic reasons... A+.
Primator. This beer was a bit too much for me. It was a nice flavor, but I found it a little blown form all of the 10+% alcohol. If you wanted one beer to mess you up for an evening, and enjoyed the thickness of doppels, this is your guy. Otherwise it's a sipper. I drank mine over a huge variety of temperature, and found that colder it was smoother, and less expressive. But the full extent of the alcohol came out when it reached the 45+ degree mark. B.
