A: Excellent deep mahogany brown, clear with some red on the sides when held to light. Mocha head looks lush, nice retention + lacing.

S: It's dark, roasted malt, very earthy. Very bready and light caramel sweetness atop.

M: Medium body and fairly smooth. Mod-high carbonation.

T: Fairly well balanced. Burnt black malts with some chocolate underbody. Bittersweet and dry finish. If burnt, light char, and grainy bread is your thing, it hits those notes. Not much sweetness/fruit.

Pours seal brown with ruby highlights and a good inch of khaki foam if you so desire. Mild aroma smells of roasted coffee, caramel, nuts, and grassy hops.

The taste follows the aroma fairly closely--astringent burnt roast takes the lead, accompanied by an only slightly less pronounced dose of grassy hops. Nuttier aspects emerge more on the back end, along with traces of caramel. The medium body is spot on, however the carbonation is a tad high, creating a mildly distracting prickliness. With that said, it does manage to be incredibly drinkable, as I polished off my can much more quickly than usual.

If you like your beer heavy on roasted malt and easy to drink, this should be quite satisfying. The bitterness is a little higher than I prefer, but I can’t deny that it works in context. It reminds me a bit of Finch’s Secret Stache, but with less chocolate and more char. Worth having more than once.

L (4.5): Nice dark color. Nice amount of head. Looks like you want it to.
S (3.5): Smells okay. Not an overly good amount of anything in particular. Can't even describe what it smells like. Or get anything in particular.
T (3.75): I was a little disappointed here. Now in all fairness, I've been really into Imperial stouts lately, and this isn't that. But there isn't a whole lot of flavor. It doesn't taste bad, but nothing to write home about. I've had two of the four pack, so I feel like I've given it a fair chance.
F (4): Not super creamy, but not super flat either. Probably about right for the style.

Overall (4). I wanted to like this beer more than I did, but it's still a fine beer. It was probably a little overhyped for me. I like most the offerings from Tallgrass, and I 'like' this one.
