A deep brown color with a foamy tan head and lacing. The aroma is sweet malt and coffee, and the flavor has sweet malt up front with the coffee and bolder malt taking over in the middle. It has a light-medium body and a smooth aftertaste.

Received in trade from Josh.
Pours a super dark ruby with a 1 finger head. It dissipated very quickly.
Aroma is malty, chocolate. It is very sweet.
Taste follows. It's very smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. Really big sweetness that has the right amount of roastyness.
Overall, a very nice sweet stout.

Aroma- malts, grain, roasted qualities, faint chocolate, metallics
Appearance- dark brown, minimal head, flat looking
Taste- typical average stout qualities, cream, sugar, lactose
Palate- medium-body, lower carbonation
Overall- Not real good. Just an average stout in all respects.

16 oz tallboy can from BlueDog Lansdale. Poured a dark black body with an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma of cola soaked brown bread, light coffee and dark cheap chocolate followed by a slight touch of cardboard. Medium body with average to strong carbonation but a quick fading aftertaste knocks the palate rating down a touch. Flavor is solid with lots of roastiness, charcoal, slight chocolate, light coffee, milk and a hint of dark berries. This is a solid beer I would happily drink again. madvike (3286) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Can - Pours deep black with a fairly thin tan head. Nose is charcoal and coffee grounds, balanced with a milky sweetness. Very pleasant. The balance works just as well in the taste, as the roastiness brings out some nice coffee flavors that transition into a roasty, milky sweetness through the finish. Creme brulee, brown sugar, and a bit of cinnamon mingle. A touch of bitterness in the long finish. Smooth and velvety in the mouth with a pretty thick body. A bit too much biting carbonation, but the whole concoction is pleasant to drink. I like it.

16oz Can. Thanks for sharing, Emeline! A fine stout indeed. The aroma leaks caramel and the flavors find a fine complexity of lactose and caramel. The roasted edges are thinner, but the best part about this beer is finding browned sugars pairing beautifully with the creaminess of the lactose and the lightness of the style. Very quaffable. burgy (456) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Mild aromas of grain, earth & smoke. Jet black pour with little to no head. Malty, yeasty, earthy, tastes. Weak palate with a very thin mouthfeel. Overall a easy drinking stout. berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - MAR 22, 2012
UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 On tap. Aroma chocolate and coffee. Dark brown with frothy tan head. Tastes sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. My favorite Tallgrass beer. pineypower (3347) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Can shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out brown, to dark brown with a small fading tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, roast, coffee, tobacco. Taste is chocolate, some light roasty notes, coffee with a little bit of sweetness creeping in there on the back end, and maybe a touch of bitterness. Solid stout. wchesser (2121) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Pours opaque with a bit of translucency on edges. Thin, quickly fading head. and minimal lacing. Nose is sweet roasted malt and light roast coffee, same on taste. A bit watery. Fine, with good balance, sessionable stout. But not at $11/4 pack, soooo not worth it, shoulda got the 10Fidy.
