It pours medium brown with a thin, fizzy foam. Roasty, meaty, more unpleasant than pleasant aroma. Itís thin, fizzy mouthfeel really ruins this beer for me. The chocolatey, roasted barley flavor is pretty damn good but alas, it cannot salvage this quite forgetable example of a sweet stout.

16 oz can. Brown pour, thin tan head that quickly fades. Roasted coffee aroma & flavor as well. Thin mouthfeel, finish is a bit watery but does leave some of the coffee flavor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque black with a medium sized tan head mostly lasting. Nose is of chocolate and molasses. Nice mouthfeel, the taste is of dark roasted malt with hints of coffee, chocolate and caramel. No hops detected. Very smooth, this stoutís tastes are not as pronounced as other stouts I have tried but is nonetheless a good tasting brew. Try it paired with a buffalo burger and raw onion.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a deep brown/black with a finger of dark tan head. Lots of chocolate and cocoa in the aroma. Lactose sweetness and chocolate malt dominate the flavor. Medium bodied and smooth. Some hop bitterness in the middle. Long dry finish of roasted barley/black patent. Just a hint of burnt flavor in the finish. Solid beer. One of the better Tallgrass offerings.

Jake65 hooked me up with a couple of these in a good trade.. Pours a standard dark black with a fairly long lasting light brown head.. spotty lacing and a decent cap.
Nose shows a light roasty element that combines well with the milk sugars.. some chocolate notes show with warmth.. nothing mindblowing, but seems about right across the board for a sweet stout.
Roasty malt and a light coffee element is moved forward and is well integrated by the lactose.. again the chocolate note is more as it warms up.
Body is very smooth... almost like an oatmeal stout.. light carbonation accentuates the silky nature.
Pretty tasty... I typically donít seek out milk stouts too often, but this is well done and I am happy I have another can! Thanks Jake for the great trade!!
