Aroma is of coffee and vanilla with a hint of smoke, Taste has definite vanilla cream coffee taste, very smooth and doesnít feel too heavy, definitely something you can enjoy 4-5 of. Tallgrass definitely has a winner

Can to glass. Dark with a tan head. A bit of a caramel nose with a hint of vanilla. A slight sweetness into the mouth and a pleasant mild bitterness on the swallow into the aftertaste. Tastes a bit like a nut brown, only milder. Good beer and would drink again.

Got this on tap at the local Old Chicago as one of their rotating locals. Color was dark brown with deep red undertones. Nice light brown creamy head, not too much lacing. Great smell - coffee, roasted chocolate, faint hoppiness. Taste is even stronger than smell - coffee, chocolate, light hops, sweet taste with a very smooth and creamy finish. Great 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.

Roasted malt aroma and flavor. Not particular exciting but canít be faulted. Good standard stout . A bit sweater than your average stout.

Pours very dark brown, no light coming through it, 2 finger khaki head. I love the aroma on this beer, lots of roasted goodness here, some sweetness as well. Taste is chocolate, little bit of coffee, pretty sweet. Good body, love this beer!

Poured from the can into a goblet. Minimal head but a nice ring around the edge and decent lacing. Smell is faint, could be a lot stronger. Taste is good, decent body but not as thick as others. Pretty smooth finish. Overall a tasty beer, and at only 5% ABV it is a nice change of pace from the heavy imperial stouts Iíve been having lately.

Great beer from Manhattan, Kansas! What an unexpected surprise. Smooth, balanced, malty, more chocolate than coffee, and absolutely delicious. I could drink these all night.

Uniquely different and easy to drink. Big hints of coffee up front both in smell and taste, a chocolaty goodness thatís not too carbonated and with only a touch of bitter after taste. Donít let the name dissuade you. Itís well worth a taste.
