Bottle. Perfectly black body with a thin medium khaki head on top. The nose is sweet caramel flavored coffee. There is also a little bit of raw soybean. The taste is like lightly sweetened coffee with a fair amount of caramel. There is also some light tobacco. A decent sweet stout with some notes of milk chocolate.

A: The pour is a dark brown color with thick tan colored foam. Pretty standard appearance, here.
S: The nose has a touch of burnt malt, with a very bready base aroma. There is a slight sweetness, which would make sense for the style.
T: The flavor is almost identical to the nose. The burnt flavor is a bit less obvious with the breadiness coming through even more and just a touch of sweetness.
M: The body is medium with a somewhat low level of carbonation, providing a smooth mouthfeel.
D: It’s easy to drink, but I do not think I’d really want to have this one again. That said, it gets bonus points for a very creative name.

Poured from 16oz can - A stout that shows promise, but not quite there. Thin, vapid, devoid of serious flavors, but not offensive. A "soft" stout that is easy to drink--as advertised--but certainly not unique. Enjoyed aroma, but all other aspects are mundane. 1st try - Tallgrass Brewing

From can. Dark brown, almost black. Thin, tan head. Boozy nose withvsome toasted malt. Typical stout, though the cream negates a lot of the smokiness on the back end. Not bad.

Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is nice with lots of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is about the same just a bit lighter. Some coffee is there with a roasted malt but again kind of thin at the end. Still there are just enough good qualities in this for a sample.

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.

Thus beer pours black with a thin off white head. The aromas are roasted coffee, chocolate. The mouthfeel is watery and bitter with alight body. Cheers!
