Notes/Commercial Description:
We love this beer here at the brewery, and think you will have one of those “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” kind of moments when you try it!

What we really like about this beer is the smoothness that brewing with cream sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try. It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!

16oz pint can with no date.

Pours almost black, with ruby/violet edges when held up to the light. 2 finger mocha tan accompanies it. Smell is toasty malt, cocoa powder, and some hazelnut. A hint of alcohol, too. Taste is sweet roasted malt, very creamy and smooth. Accents of bitter dark chocolate, hazelnut, and oak. Mouthfeel is a bit thin.

Overall a great easy-drinking stout.

Pours jet black with a light tan head. In the aroma, a slight coffee roast. In the taste, a sweet to dry coffee roastiness. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry coffee presence in the aftertaste. A nice coffee roast, yet thin for what it is.

big thanks to TATURBO for let me try this beer out! Thanks Chris!

tallboy can into oversized snifter.

Appearance: black bodied beer with a 2 finger tall khaki / mocha colored head from a hard pour. head drops down to a decent cap ontop of the beer. Really nice lacing thats thick, but almost spotty not quite thick though.

Smell: Roasty & nutty, milky lactose notes, and milk chocolates. hint of vanilla. Its nice!

Taste: It actually tastes like a brown ale mixed with a stout. A really mild milk chocolate and lactose notes starts this beer off. Then you get a little bit of roasty notes than taste like a faint coffee note. Beer finishes with nutty note, that is probably the strongest taste that i am finding the beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Milky, slick, creamy, and mouth coating. All while being flavorful, smooth, and drinkable! Can I say session stout? YES it is!

Overall: My first beer from this brewery and its a dandy! A session stout in a tall boy can! Awesome stuff here from Kansas of all places. This Buffalo sweat and Redband stout are my two favorite picks for stouts in a can. I am impressed by this beer! Geez, I am really not sure why this beer gets such low ratings...

Thanks to JeepCop for this can...

A: Pours into an imperial pint glass, this beer is a deep dark brown with about two fingers of khaki colored head. The foam settles nicely over time. There is some decent lacing as it drinks.

S: This beer smells of sweet roasted malt. There are notes of coffee, chocolate, cream, and bread. It's like a roasted mocha cappachino. It smells delicious.

T: It starts off sweet and creamy, but the roast and chocolate come on almost immediately after. The two sides switch back and forth as it sits on the palate. The finish is like a chocolate milk.

M: Medium bodied beer. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy all the way through. There isn't much of a lingering sensation, which makes my want to drink more and more.

O: This is a pretty darn good beer. The look, smell, and taste are all really nice. The drinkability of this beer is also really high. I could see myself kicking back with a few can in a sitting.
