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. Plovmand (8702) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2011
Can provided by Hopscotch. Pours dark brown with a medium off white head. The aroma is coffee, sweet caramel and tobacco. The flavour is coffee, chocolate, sweet caramel and lactose. Cream like body. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 20, 2011
I believe this is another tick of a box fulla ticks sent by the incomparable Jzzbassman. Dark brown with orange tints. Light tan head that poof, is gone to thick lace. Nose is malty, brown sugar and dark fruit sweet. Caramel and coffee. Alcohol hints. Taste is big candy sweet and milky back. Really nice. High sugar in the mouth. Lots of roastiness, but sweet prevails. Nice sweet stout.

Can: Charcoal and coffee nose. Black, thin tan head. Sweet coffee flavor, strong vegetal component. Lasting coffee finish. Certainly a sweet stout, but there are some glaring flaws. Bad sample, but I think the recipe is probably solid. The boiled cabbage just doesn’t belong. Tainted and the Oasis ESB is better. benfergy (248) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Darkish brown, very close to black in appearance. The aroma is robust, with caramel malt along with light herbal hops and a hint of coffee. As I sip, I get more coffee aroma, and some more o. The taste is slightly savory, no sourness, and only a little bitter. Palate is average. Overall, I’m impressed by this beer, probably my favorite from Tallgrass; adhering well to the standard of sweet stouts, but not a stereotypical one. Definitely try it out if you get a chance. magsinva (1493) - Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2011
tap - pours dark with a khaki head that fades to white. Smoky coffee and chocolate. Bittersweet leaning towards sweet. Medium weight. Overall its nice, I’d get it again. DiarmaidBHK (6168) - 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. RSRIZZO (2034) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2011
1 pint can poured into an English Pint at 50°. Color is black with good carbonation and a small tight tan head. Aroma is a burnt coffee scent with a sweet chocolate note. Bold medium body that goes down crisp yet has a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is deeply roasted giving a nice coffee taste with sweet vanilla and a hint of fruit that reminds me of orange/chocolate candy. The hops show with a faint spiciness and mellow bitterness. After taste is clean, the sweet flavors build up a bit then step back and let the bitterness hanging around. Overall I like it, its a tasty take on a Sweet Stout.
