Concealer (881) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2013
Pours a dark brown with caramel head. Smells like toasted malt and smoke. Tastes Smokey upfront with a sweet chocolate finish.

HuskerTan (661) - Holdrege, 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.

Deep opaque black brown with a minimal tan head. Coffee and dark chocolate, molasses, some light licorice notes. Quite bitter, some sweetness. Heavy body, carbonated, long oily finish. Quite good.

natejgood (404) - 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 can’t put my finger on, but it is pretty drinkable and less heavy than many stouts.

TizzleJizzle (672) - 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

Nice roasty-sweet flavor, medium bodied. Light roast aroma with a hint of vanilla. Deep coffee brown-black color with a slight white-ish colored head.

troyc (2862) - Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2015
[Can] Opaque black colored pour with a large head of brown foam on top. Nose is of charred malts, anise and an earthy bitterness. Overall, the flavor is very acrid. Burnt malts, unsweetened chocolate, ash, charred wood, coffee grounds and light booze. Thin finish is more burnt tasting than anything else. I wasn’t a huge fan.

Bill Becker (463) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Can at Old Chicago. Pours a black colour with a small off white head of foam. Things got weird. ..I get no roasted malt, maybe a hint or 2 of chocolate, but the smell I get the most is a fruity tartness. Tastes like it smells, complete with that fruity tartness. Good mouthfeel. I read a few reviews after drinking this limited Upslope brew and didn’t see a mention of any tartness. Doesn’t fit the style anyways. Infection? Edit: yep, it is referred to so I guess this is what the brewer intended.
