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.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a thin but creamy cap of beige foam.

Aroma: Coffee, cocoa, cinnamon and chocolate cereal.
Taste: Dry roast, slightly burnt malt, and dark chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Fizzy and dry.
Overall: Really good, well done, fresh and tasty.
A decent sweet stout. Very drinkable as a desert beer, but I certainly wouldn’t want to indulge in more than one in a single sitting.
Great appearance when first coming out of the can (no really, it’s in cans) but the head retention wasn’t great. Travlr (26430) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Can courtesy of ryan, thanks! Clear brown, scant head. Aroma of dark milk chocolate. Taste is powdered cocoa, light body. Tasty but a bit thin. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is coffee, toffee and chocolate. A very nice smelling stout.
The flavor is coffee, chocolate, caramel and roasted malt. This beer is a malt bomb and all of the various malt flavors work very well together.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Pours a dark brown color with a generous, frothy brown head. Aroma is dominanted by strong chocolate and coffee tones. The first taste reinforces what the aroma suggests, with the addition of toffee and slight caramel flavors. Finishes clean, which helps give it a very drinkable quality. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Black Hills Beer Fest - Dark brown pour with a finger of creamy tan head. Aroma is roasty with light cocoa notes. Tastes sweet and smooth, it has the creamy milk stout kinda thing going on, but not too much lacto... More focus on the roast, espresso, chocolate, and light bitters. Good.
