Can received in trade from RobertDale thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a solid dark brown color with the faintest of garnet at the edges and a huge frothy tan head that persists forever and leaves stickies everywhere. Aromas of cocoa and bakers chocolate with a sharp almost tart fruity bite to it. Citrus and earthy hop aromas are plentiful. The flavor is rich chocolate with hints of caramel and butterscotch. Earthy citrus mixes with hints of plums and a touch of mineral water. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice porter, but I would have liked a bit less fruit and a bit more creaminess.

Can. Nose is chocolate and cakey, smells like flourless cake. drank from the can, so appearance is a 4/5. Taste is initially sweet that then turns to a very roasted coffee, very very roasty. Moderate bitterness, little grassy hop flavor. some alcohol warming in the ears, but not hot. not too shabby

Can. Sweet, malty aroma, chocolate notes. Sweet malty flavour, chocolate and a bit of char. Maybe a bit too sweet, but a good porter.

Tap at whole foods. The beer was excellent for the $3 / pint on tap. The beer was a dark brown/black body with a creamy tan head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malt and oatmeal. I thought it was an oatmeal stout. Super easy drinking while buying groceries.

Tallgrass has developed some fun names for their brews and some amazing cans to house their product. They may have outdone themselves with Zombie Monkie. However, a slick name and an artful can isnít worth shit if the beer sucks. Luckily, Zombie Monkie does not suck. Not at all. Itís a fantastic porter with a tight tan head. It has an inviting coffee and cocoa aroma. The flavor has lots of toasted malt, spicy hops, and bitter chocolate. Every part of this beer is designed to demand attention. For once, this beer deserves it.

16oz can poured into a Blvd tulip. I like the can, has a grainy texture but I have no idea what the heck a zombie monkey is, maybe a reference to 21 days. Pours black with a big mocha colored head. Aroma is very dry ash and fume, and a little bit of mineral character to balance it out. Mouthfeel is soft and a bit nitro feeling, static-y on the cheeks. Flavor is dry, roasted, ends dry... its dry and bitter black malts. Almost like a big dry stout, perfect we need an Imperial Dry Stout. Its cool, I could keep drinking this for a while.
