Appearance: First off, cool can design. The black parts of the can are actually textured. Anyway, on to the beer. Pitch black in color with a silky tan head. Good lacing.

Aroma: Bittersweet coffee, chocolate, and charred malt. A touch of cream as well.

Taste: Starts with a smooth dark malt and cream mix that is bordered by a light earthy hop character. The hop bitterness goes from light to moderate about halfway through and the finish releases a great creamy/toasty malt flavor onto the palate. Aftertaste of lingering bitterness and dark malt. Quite robust at 6.2% ABV.

Mouthfeel: Hovering around medium in body, maybe a bit above. Above average carbonation does a good job of lightening things up. Good drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Tallgrass delivers another tasty brew with their Zombie Monkie robust porter. Among the common styles, my familiarity with porters is near the bottom of the list but it didn't stop me from fulling enjoying this one. The hop bitterness and sometimes harsh dark malt flavors are restrained without being dull. Would I drink it again? Yes.
