Mahogony trimmed black body beneath a fading 1.5" light khaki head leaving flat dense shallow lace all around
Aroma of creamy lactic blending caramel notes and pleasant chocolate cake with a controlled dark chocolate-coffee influence introducing subtle bitter nuance on a light-medium, mildly carbonated body finishing with hints of dark fruit, and a touch of vanilla, smooth chocolate on the dark side of sweet rounding out, solid session
16oz can at 45º into 16.5oz Stölze Berlin

Can to glass. Pours a glassy brown with a small, quickly disappearing khaki head. Aroma is primary vanilla and coffee. Taste is similar, with a little less sweetness than the aroma. Good example of the style.

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.

Mild aromas of grain, earth & smoke. Jet black pour with little to no head. Malty, yeasty, earthy, tastes. Weak palate with a very thin mouthfeel. Overall a easy drinking stout.

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass. Pours an inky black, with a small tan head which quickly fades, leaving minimal lacing. Nose is dark malt. Taste is dark malt and a slight hint of caramel and chocolate. Smooth mouth fell, with a long lasting finish. Very good.
