UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 16 oz can thanks to soonerchamps. Pours dark brown with very little head that collects to a ring. Aroma is dominated by vanilla with a light hint chocolate. Taste is all vanilla really. Maybe a touch of coffee and chocolate. Thin to medium body. Decent, easy to drink stout but I wish there was something more than just vanilla here.

Great day ender. Maybe too much vanilla. Repeat drink for sure. Forced comments aren't helpful.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours basically black with a good big head and nice lacing on the glass.
Geeze this beer is really coffe forward in the aroma, lots of roast, lots of chillin @ the coffe shop while beans are roasting aroma offered. Roasty, sweet smelling, pungent, and inviting.
Flavor is sweet, lots of milked chocolate offered, lots’s of vanilla offered, lots of roastiness & coffe character. s’got enough bitterness to bring some needed balance.
I think what I like best about it is that it brings a lot of elements that folks (myself included) like about Imperial Stout into a lower boost format.

Deep amber color, frothy tan head is stubborn. Vanilla-cinnamon aroma, hints of yams in there too. Interesting. Delicious vanilla softness atop the roasty base. This is great!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Dublin’s. Medium black-brown pour with foamy off-white head. Nose is semi-sweet chocolate, iced coffee, and light vanilla/cream. Flavor is iced coffee with chocolate syrup and cream. Some light roasted malt bitterness/semi-sweet chocolate in the finish. Fairly light, but sessionable. Residual coffee and cream with chocolate. Very enjoyable, better than the base.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a black with a average tan head. Aroma is cocoa with some sweet vanilla and some sugar. Flavor is chocolate milk sweetness with a decent vanilla and some chocolate cake chewiness. The base beer really doesn’t do anything, this is all about the additions of vanilla and cocoa bean. still this is very tasty and another good from Tallgrass.
