I was looking for a stout but this ended up working fantastic. Had a pint with dinner from the keg and was very surprised. Kind of mild depth with a roasty nut hint and fairly strong after taste.

A: Can art is BADASS! 'Tactical grip' is gimmicky and useless (ya need rubber, not textured aluminum!), but the art itself it awesome. Tallgrass usually kills it in this department. Anyway, the beer: black body, at least extremely dark brown, with a sandy tan silky head, sticky, rather thick lace, suggesting strong hopping.

S: Floral, soapy. Mild malt character. Meh overall, bad for a porter.

T: Sweet roasted malt, milk chocolate, some smoke, raw grain. No trace of those suggested hops.

M: Medium-light bodied, sweet.

O: Came for the art, only content with the product.

Bitter dark chocolate, subtle roasted malt, good carb, and creamy. Easy drinking. Solid.

An excellent porter, pours from the can with a velvety off white head, of around an inch. Retains this head for some time. As the beer warms you get some fantastic dark chocolate and roasted malt notes. A whiff of hops on the nose keeps things interesting. Mouthfeel is smooth and inviting, almost like a milkshake. Slight lactose feel here, more so than some milk stouts.

Got this in the tall boy can which was really cool. Had texture and sweet graphics which caught my eye right off the bat.
Poured into a pint glass and the dark caramel head was solid and took up a third of the glass, and was staying! Best head on a beer.
Taste was great. Heavy mouthful but extremely rich caramel notes with a balanced finish. One of my favorite porters ever!

Another great Tallgrass offering. Has a somewhat charred taste that I really enjoyed.
