3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Flying Saucer pours black with light tan head. Aroma is roast malt and sweetness. Lighter mouthfeel for the style. Flavors are pretty much on par with the nose and is pretty one dimensional. An average beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
16 oz can. Pours an deep, brown-black with a rootbeer-like head, decent retention. Nose is cocoa, some vanilla and butterscotch, roasted barley. Mouth is thin -- almost watery -- certainly not creamy as in the description, and wayyyyy too light on the palate. Iím not saying a stout needs to be 10W40 by definition, but Iíll honestly say Dr.Pepper has more body. Super-light sweetness (although not a natural sweetness... but Iíll get to that), some cocoa, barley, wheat puffs, chocolate and some butterscotch. Speaking of soft drinks, this has an odd, almost diet soda aftertaste that doesnít leave any of the desirable traits on the palate that Iíd look for in a stout, but definitely plenty of the aforementioned aftertaste. Disappointed would be an understatement. Iíd rather have had spent the money on a stout as ubiquitous as Guinness (and wouldíve had money left for a bag of chips).

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. Itís like they sort of gave up on it and threw hops at it. Nowhere near as good as Tallgrassí other beers (Oasis in particular). Pass.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 16oz can - A stout that shows promise, but not quite there. Thin, vapid, devoid of serious flavors, but not offensive. A "soft" stout that is easy to drink--as advertised--but certainly not unique. Enjoyed aroma, but all other aspects are mundane. 1st try - Tallgrass Brewing

Tap, pours a dark brown with a khaki colored head, sweet taste of cream, chocolate, some vanilla, and roasted malt, has a little coffee bitter finish, it is a touch on the thin side but still a very solid stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours opaque black with a small tan head that dissipates into a ring that leaves no lacing. Aroma is kind of weak but consists of coffee and chocolate. Flavors of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but finishes on a sweet milky note. Overall a pretty average sweet stout.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice little oatmeal stout here. I say little b/c it's only 5%. ABV needs to be higher. Probably around 6ish. Nevertheless, it's a super easy drinker w/ a good creamy palate and just the right amount of roastiness.
