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. bbrownz (2) - Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2010 does not count
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. 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.

16oz tall boy can, thanks Tim! Love the name and label on this. Quite a bit of coffee on the nose, roasty nuts, hints of ash, light creamy sweet milk. Really light easy drinking body. All the flavors of the nose but really light, balanced and easy to drink...lightly sweet and creamy through the finish. DiarmaidBHK (6151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Pours from tap dark brown with a thn brown head. Big chocolate aroma. Nice malty sweetness on the tongue without it being cloying. A bit watery on the finish. thirdeye11 (6162) - 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. chibuck (3521) - 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 finol (3524) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2011
Can at Oliver Twist.
Aroma domiated by coffe. Taste of coffe and chocolate, finishes rather quick and thin.
Like a smoother porter.
