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.

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.

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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
