3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle From Sir Kevin Scott from Spring Texas: This pours a dark brown/black with a frothy tan head atop. Nose was roasted malt and sour mash or lactic or something...a little tart is what im trying to say. Flavors were the same, lacticly tart roasted malt flavors, somewhat sweet, medium body. I must admit, stouts, other than imperial stouts, are not my fancy...but they exist am familiar with the style, and can treat them like the shit they are all i want.

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.

Oily black with thin, brown, quickly dissipating head. Aroma....I must be stuffed up - can't really smell anything. Tastes like dark rum and cream soda. Super creamy right up front and it stays all the way through the finish.

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.
