Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Can. Pours extremely dark, tan head. Smells a little smokey, kinda bready. Medium body, much lighter than expected. Very carbonated, kinda flavorless. Some bitterness at the end. I would say this is a miss. Pretty disappointed actually.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer served a pitch black color with a one finger head of cream colored foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, fading to leave some rings of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of a roasted malt smell along with hints of chocolate and a little bit of caramel and molasses. Along with these aromas comes notes of vanilla and a little bit of crème. Taste – The taste begins with a nice roasty base that has a light level of caramel and milk chocolate sweetness. Along with these flavors are notes of vanilla, which grow stronger in nature, along with a little bit of more earthy hop taste. The sweetness grows stronger in nature as the taste advances and is joined by some other darker flavors of coffee and a little bit of molasses. With some light woody tastes and a hint of herbal hop coming at the end, one is left with a lightly sweetened and chewy, but easy and flavorful dark flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is average. I would have liked a little lower carbonation for the dark flavors of the brew, but overall it was pretty decent due to its nice moderately dry character. Overall – This was a rather enjoyable foreign extra stout. The abv. of 6.9 is very hidden rather well. It is a little sweeter then what I am accustomed to for the style, but very enjoyable and flavorful none the less.

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 (1227) - 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 (1520) - 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, I’ve heard a lot of negativity surrounding Upslope, don’t know a lot about it but this beer certainly wasn’t 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.
