Bottle. Dark pour with an offwhite head. Aroma of mild coffee. Kind of thin and uninteresting. hopscotch (11410) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Can… Pours coal black with a small, frothy, khaki head. Decent retention. The nose furnishes deeply roasted malts, toasted pistachios, vanilla, a touch of fudge and a splash of espresso. Medium to full-bodied and mildly creamy with limp carbonation. Sweet, roasty, fudge flavor – very low bitterness level. Minerally, lightly sweet finish.

16 oz. can from the Root Cellar. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy beige head that settles into a thin layer. The aroma is roasted malt, thin black coffee, dark chocolate with a strange tea like component. The flavor has some nice chocolate and roasted malt, black coffee that is on the watered down side and more sweet tea. Light to medium bodied. For the most part the flavors are decent, but this could benefit from more body and mouthfeel. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Can from Blue Dog and Capone’s. Pours burnt sienna with tan head. Nose is big roasty dark malt, cacao, mild vanilla. Tastes smooth, with the dark malt predominating, and backup hops, cacao, and an overall creamy roastiness. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a nice dark brown with a brown head. Very rich aroma, leans towards molasses, chocolate, prunes and lactose. Flavor is so smooth, sweet with lactose, milk chocolate, light raisiny notes. Such an easy drinking beer but bold at the same time.

12 oz. bottle via trade with Pawola22- thanks again, Brian! Pours a dark brown, opaque with lighter brown highlights when held up to light, and a finger-thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, metallic notes, peat, dark fruits, cream, and brown sugar. Flavor of roasted malts, brown sugar, chocolate, earthy notes, cream, dark fruits, cardboard, and smoked wood. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a dry, chocolaty mouthfeel. This is pretty nice. By far the best beer I’ve tried from Tallgrass, this hits the spot. marcus (10865) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle from Liquid Planet, Missoula. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a dry treacle and chocolate flavor with a carbonated finish. onceblind (10861) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Dark dark brown with ruby highlights. Bubbly light brown head, giving out a stingy malty aroma of cocoa, dark toast, cereal grain, and general roastiness. Medium body and taste leads me to believe this is more porter than stout. But it’s not a terrible detractor, as this is one heckuva porter. Big taste of brown malt, light chocolate, and tasty toasted malts. It’s got that milky sweetness from the sugar used, and it’s nice and creamy and chocolatey and tasty.

500 ml can. Big chocolaty and fruity nose. Creamy, with vanilla. Black with lace. Light. Creamy flavor with chocolate, berry, nice roast, cola or root beer. A but thin, and very sweet. Decent.

Can. Dark brown, very dark, with a light brown head. Prominent roast profile with a lower-key lactic sweetness that hits it just right for me. In other words, not TOO sweet, but a solid stout with sweet tendencies.... Whatever, I liked it. It was good. Not overly complex, but good. Creamy mouthfeel.
