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.

16oz can from Three Cellars. Pours dark brown with a cafe au lait head. Aroma has sweet smelling chocolate and roasted malts, perhaps molasses. Taste is of chocolate syrup, molasses and caramel. Quite sweet and a bit thin for a stout. Finishes lactosy sweet and medium length, with the only tinge of bitterness I get ... way, way back in the end. Almost no alcohol presence. Super sweet. More malt body perhaps would have set this up to be a really good one. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2012
16oz can: pours a mostly opaque black with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted malty nose with some milk chocolate character. Body starts with effervescent carbonation and light caramel malty sweetness with plenty of chocolate and light roast before a slightly drier nutty finish. Pretty true to style and enjoyable. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Brown red pour with tan head and lace. Chocolate and toasted malt on the nose. Chocolate, toasted malt, light coffee, and a good malt bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. MaltOne (408) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2013
16oz can. Good coffee-chocolate aroma. Pours opaque black coffee brown, with sustaained with fluffy tan head. Flavor carries on the coffee chocolate, but with an earthiness to it as well. Medium to light body. Faint coffee finish, with a slight sweet note. Very smooth and drinkable. This is very useful in thet it gives you a classic stout profile, yet, is not particularly complex, heavy, or alcoholic - making it a highly drinkable beer.

Nice sweet malty nose. Flavor of roasted malt and vanilla. Goes down smooth and has great mouth feel. Nice for a low abv zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Moderate smell of caramel, hazelnut coffee and cream. Milldly bitter and sweet with some smoke and a vegetal quality. Chakka like. theisti (4237) - Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2009
12 oz bottle given to me by beastiefan2k. Pour is black with garnet highlights and a noisy, firm two inch tan head. Head falls slow with nice lacing. Lacing remains throughout the entire beer. Aroma of spent coffee grounds, roasty tobacco and some mineral. Taste is the roast coffee, leafy tobacco and mineral of the nose, along with a soft lactose sweetness that works really nice as just a subtle accent to the roast stout flavor. There is also some nice drying pine hoppiness to the finish. Palate is medium to thin, along with high carbonation, which, joined with the dryness to the finish make this beer real easy to drink. Tallgrass makes some very quaff-able beers. Thanks for this one Eugene. rader58 (933) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Pours a deep dark brown/black with no head at all. Aroma is of a very strong coffee. Taste has a slight bitterness with a sweet finish. Flavors of coffee, roasted malt, brown sugar. Not bad at all. I am becoming more impressed with this young brewery. Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 16, 2010
Poured ultra dark brown with a short tan, to light brown head. The aroma was mild coffee and plenty of sugar and chocolate. The flavor is sweet, dominated by sugar with some chocolate and a bit of roasted malt and coffee. Almost medium in body. Sweet without being cloying. A pretty good effort.
