Poured into a tulip glass; thanks, CVM4!

A: Black with a tan half finger head that dissipated to medium bubbles. Thick lacing.

S: Chocolate, licorice, caramel malts. Nice.

T: Follows nose with a smooth, sweet, undead frothy finish. Some coffee notes. Robust. Even better as it warms; the taste evens out.

M: Medium to heavy with medium carbonation.

O: A great porter. Tallgrass creates another winner with this little undead beast. If you like porters, tap into this killer can.

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

Serving type: growler

A- Near black, but more deep brown with walnut accents. 1 finger light tan head that clings to the glass for dear life.

S- Raw coffee beans, toffee, and hints of chocolate. Earthy notes of pine and wood.

T- A porter that some intense coffee flavor, hops kicking up a fuss, and a chalky smooth finish. A nice harmony of chocolate and vanilla. Bold roasted, malty character really takes this one up a notch. It isn't burnt, but rather roasted and smooth.

M- Body is just about right for the size of this beer. Astringent at times and a nice bitter hit gives you a jolt with each sip.

O- One of the better porters I have had this year. A new addition to Tallgrass, and possibly my favorite from them. Very cool can design too.

poured 16oz can into Duvel tulip. The can has a textured feel to it.

A - A beautiful obsidian color with a massive 3 finger Swiss cocoa colored head. Retention is fantastic and there is thick lacing all over the glass. A perfect appearance in my book.

S - I pick up the roasted malts with a nice milk chocolate and French vanilla coffee aroma. The cola scent I usually find in Porters is muted.

T - Oh man is this tasty. I get a Swiss cocoa mixed with delicious French vanilla coffee. Again, I am used to a cola flavor, but it is very faint. The roasted malts that were used in this are incredible.

M - Very rich, creamy, smooth and medium bodied with terrific carbonation. Easy drinking and hard to put down!

O - A damn nice Porter that took my by surprise. Well done Tallgrass, bravo!
