Love the tactical grip can, Artwork is pretty cool too...

Pours an effervescent mahogany with 3 finger of mocha colored head. Nice lacing & good head retention

S: Mocha & coffee notes

T: Coffee, a touch of mocha, a touch lactic sourness is there too up front. Roastynesss, & more coffee as this warms, just modicum of caramel as well, dryness too. Finishes roasty, with cocoa sweetness, some drynesss

MF: Medium bodied, fairly firm carbonation

Easy to drink, really scratches the coffee beer itch, no FBS, but a very suitable substitute. I hope this stays in the permanent rotation

Can received in trade from RobertDale thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a solid dark brown color with the faintest of garnet at the edges and a huge frothy tan head that persists forever and leaves stickies everywhere. Aromas of cocoa and bakers chocolate with a sharp almost tart fruity bite to it. Citrus and earthy hop aromas are plentiful. The flavor is rich chocolate with hints of caramel and butterscotch. Earthy citrus mixes with hints of plums and a touch of mineral water. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice porter, but I would have liked a bit less fruit and a bit more creaminess.

One of the cooler looking cans complete with tactical grip, that I have seen. Pours dark brown with over two fingers of head that had great retention before settling to a thick cap. Heavy lacing is left down the glass.

Very good malty aroma. Hints of grain, chocolate, roast which is not really porter like, and some citrus hops.

It is a robust porter with a full palate of malt flavor. Mostly chocolate malt with compliments of roasted malt. Hops do not play a big part in the flavor but adds some citrus and bitterness. Has a larger ABV but there is no sign of it in the flavor. Finishes with a roasted bitterness.

Big body and nicely carbonated. A bigger porter.

A very good porter from Tallgrass. Comes with cool packaging and amusing marketing. But the important part is what is in the can, and it is good.
