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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanIHave4Beers (3327) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 14, 2013
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.

Can pours dark brown with one finger tan head. Chocolate roast aroma. taste slightly sweet with malts, chocolate, vanilla, nuts, roast. Mild roast finish. Palate on the thin side. Very drinkable, went down pretty quickly.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 7, 2013
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!

arkurzynski (1558) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2013
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.

thegreenrooster (3265) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2013
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.

A - pours opaque black/brown with very little tan head in a ring. S - rotten bananas, vanilla flavoring, malted milkball, vegetal notes an Hershey's syrup. M - light and crisp. Watery body with a lightly chalky dry end. T - vegetal and sweet. Overripe bananas, Carob chips, malted milk balls, chalky chocolate. Some coffee. O - very light and drinkable. Like a sweetened vanilla iced coffee. 3.4
