Solid blackness, roasty brown head atop. Looks nice.

Aroma: chocolate, coffee, and caramel, richly roasted. Butterscotch. Dark fruits, plum, fig. Just enough sweet, just enough roast. Nice.

Taste: Deep, rich, and delicious. Full-boded, and surprisingly smooth. All the flavors from the nose return in the mouth. This one has it all, and it all adds up to yum. Quite nice. Solid stuff. All kinds of tasty.

More like this, please, Tallgrass!

Really enjoyed this beer. Nice toasty but yet sweet balance going on. Super creamy and easy to drink. A little bit light on the mouth feel is the only downside. Nice and black and has a nice tan head. I would say this is almost a stout.

Not bad, not great. Had a very large chocolate and roasted malt presence. A little coffee in there as well. Was sort of soapy and had a little burn to it. Which I found surprising for this low of an ABV. It was minimal, but there.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

Damn good beer. You can kind of taste the alcohol which pulls a bit from the overall taste. Other than that superb! !!

Poured from 16 oz can dated best by 12/26/2015 into nonic pint.

Love the can art and especially the texture to the can itself.

A. Very dark brown almost black with 2 finger light tan head. Lasting retention and heavy lacing.

S: Roasted malts and coffee beans.

T: Light espresso with roasted malts. Hints of chocolate and caramel.

M: Medium body and nicely carbonated.

O: Nice straight forward porter. Something I would buy regularly if it was in my distro.

It's dark with a tan head. Looks pretty much like a porter.

Smell is coffee.

Taste had something else going on - I wanted roasted malt and some bite but that's not what I got here. This tasted like something I'd find in my mother-in-law's bathroom - floral and soapy. It's oddly not as bad as it sounds, but nothing floral and soapy really can call itself robust.

Feel is thin with moderate carbonation.

It's not bad, but I've had better "robust porters".
