3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark, almost completely black and opaque. Good head that dissipated and left a thin film on top. Lacing that creeps back down the glass. Smells of slightly sweet bitter roasted malts with a touch of coffee. Tastes much like the smell, but with some dark chocolate character that adds nicely to the dark roasted malts, coffee, minimal hops. Itís sweet, although not especially so for the style. This adds a nice dimension as itís a bit different than what I expected. Itís a very flavorful beer. Feels quite thick and full bodied going in, but slightly watery when you swallow. Slightly slick on the tongue, with a very pleasant lingering sweet aftertaste. Very nice and highly drinkable. The moderate ABV makes it easy to drink while the delicious but not overpowering flavor makes me want to have this one again. Value: 6.85 for four 16 oz cans. A good deal.
