Can. Pours deep dark brown/black with a nice tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and roast. Flavor follows suit. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel leads to a robust but soft finish. Really good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 I love stouts and all styles of stouts. I have even tolerated mediocre stouts. However, as the Tallgrass website states, after drinking it you’ll say “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” . You are right this is one of the worst stouts ever tasted. It is a watered down version that hints at A-B or MillerCoors style of craft beer imitations. Did not detect the coffee, chocolate notes stated. Also, it does not appear to pour a deep, heavy brown like most stouts.

Very drinkable stout. Not a killer Founders or Alesmith level, but pleasant

Starts sweet with very subtle roasted cereal, and leaves almost no after taste. Opaque black with a brown head that quickly fades away.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Aroma is of coffee and vanilla with a hint of smoke, Taste has definite vanilla cream coffee taste, very smooth and doesn’t feel too heavy, definitely something you can enjoy 4-5 of. Tallgrass definitely has a winner

Wow what an aroma. Thinner for a stout but a stout non the less. Great beer.

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 can’t be faulted. Good standard stout . A bit sweater than your average stout.
