BVery (7959) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Tap at Cottonwood in Houston. Super dark pour with a beige head. Roasty and sweet. Delivers more on appearance and smell than taste and palate. But decent.

Oscbert (1143) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Sweet malty aroma, licorice root, milk chocolate, berry. Pours black with small creamy brown head Sweet malt with a slight raspberry like sourness, caramel, milk chocolate Medium bodied with medium high CO2, lingering sweet sour finish. Enjoyable FES. I prefer the fruity side to the FES opposed to roasty ones. Interesting. Makes me want to continue drinking it. Like the sour touch ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (766) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Can. A- Roasty, cocoa, subtle dark fruits. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Roasty, dry, bitter, cocoa. P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, dry finish. O- Naturally, I hate the visible yeast. Beyond that, Iíve heard a lot of negativity surrounding Upslope, donít know a lot about it but this beer certainly wasnít positive. Yes, I had it on the last day before the "best by" date (which I have never really seen on a stout before) but it lacked a lot of dimension other than having a lot of dry bitter cocoa and roasty.

natejgood (422) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours a clear dark brown with a slight, medium brown head. Aroma of sweet malts and hay. A slightly bitter/sour flavor on the back of the tongue. Much less sweet than I would have expected based on the aroma. Fairly smooth in the mouth with very small bubbles. This beer has a relatively distinct flavor that I canít put my finger on, but it is pretty drinkable and less heavy than many stouts.

TizzleJizzle (731) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2015
12 oz can. Poured an opaque black with a khaki head. Taste of roasted and toasted malts, dark chocolate, and a hop bitterness finish. Medium carbonation, medium body. Not too shabby
