It’s nice to see a reasonably good beer in a can, and a tallboy no less. But this wasn’t the best beer among what I could find for sale in Custer State Park in South Dakota. Not especially rich palate, with moderate malty notes and a thinness that was suggestive of what’s happened to Guinness over the years. Can. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pours a deep brown almost black with a medium creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma of chocolate, tobacco, toffee, oats and a milky/vanilla sweetness. Flavor of chocolate, tobacco, toffee, nuts and vanilla. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Thanks to Dale for this tallboy Kansas tick... dark brown almost black, a big tan head, creamy with great retention and lace that’s full but doesn’t stay super long, looking great... roasted coffee but a touch of generic chocolate, a little vanilla, very strong roast for a 5% sweet stout... wow, this is really sweet didn’t see that coming at all after the nose, creamy with lactose sugar on the front, finish is a bit roasty adding nice balance, a lot going on and very drinkable, a touch to sweet for me and watery, but overall this is very solid jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Pours deep brown with minimal head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel. Taste of toffee, caramel malt, with slight roastiness. Thin palate. Boring.

Can. Exceptionally beautiful pour for an American stout ... towering head of off-white foam over a pitch-black brew. The aroma is full of warming roasts. Although a little thin, the beer drinks with a nice rounded roasty flavor as well ... with a moderate bitter chocolate finish. Good stuff. (#4137, 6/12/2011)

Pint can pours dark black/brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is sweet throughout with lactose sugars, chocolate with dry slightly bitter coffee finish. Pretty decent, drinkable. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2011
(16oz can thanks to blutt59) clear deep brown, creamy tan bubbles. Nose of sweet chocolate, rich and fudgey. Taste of chocolate, watery, cocoa, creamy body but thin in general. Light toasty linger. TheBeerGod (6216) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Can. Black pour with a tall, frothy mocha colored head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, soft ashy notes and burnt caramel in the nose. Taste is lactic/ sour chocolate milk, roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Body is medium with a creamy, dense carbonation. Finishes with more lactic notes, burnt oatmeal, cocoa, roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. 3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2011
tallboy. roasted grain nose (oatmeal, barley, wheat / bread) with touches of floor cleaner and soy sauce. medium-light malt-forward body with strongly harsh edges. milk powder yeast blankets a roast and black patent-heavy malt showing: husky, crusty soy sauce-flavored roast with vegetable and butter notes developed with increasing temperature, turning it from forgettable and mediocre early to downright disgusting given enough time. yikes.

Pours opaque black with a small tan head that dissipates into a ring that leaves no lacing. Aroma is kind of weak but consists of coffee and chocolate. Flavors of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but finishes on a sweet milky note. Overall a pretty average sweet stout.
