2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
20 oz on tap. Black color, good adhesion. Decent head fades to slight collar. Smells a bit more like coffee than oatmeal. Disappointing overall. Taste is light and not full-bodied, contrasts with the appearance & aroma. It’s like they sort of gave up on it and threw hops at it. Nowhere near as good as Tallgrass’ other beers (Oasis in particular). Pass.

Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma chocolate, coffee and pipe tobacco. Taste follows nose and for some reason it reminds me of johnnie walker black label. Pretty good but a little thin for my tastes.

Black 2 finger head receding to a thicker than average thin head.Lacing.
Nose is chocolatate malt a little roast espresso some blackberry, and some little hop notes more as it warms,smells tastey.
Taste mirrors aroama with good body at first with a chocolate mild roast light espresso,the finish is light almost thinand lets you know its 5% but the roast sticks through with a mild bittering.Theres some mild hop flavor towards the end also. A very good tasting stout.

First had it on tap at Doolittles in Eagan. Ask the bartender what that was he described it as a Guiness but not as hoppy. Had a great pour and the aroma was toasty and dark cola color. I was suprise how smooth it was and not too hoppy. Real refreshing. So good I bought the kit at Northern Brewer and brewed it.
