Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

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!

First and foremost...love the name!!! Secondly...this is a decent stout...for the abv to be where its at and the taste to be where its at...it just works....well. The beer pours an opaque black with nice offwhite head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is milk chocolate with hints of mocha. The taste is a creamy almost nestle start then finishes slightly bitter to leave an espresso flare. The mouthfeel is medium body with smooth carbonation. Overall...very nice sessionable stout!

Big light brown head just sits above a clear really dark brown to black colored stout.

Big well roasted grain malts aroma with just a hint of dark chocolates coming through.

Nice well roasted malt taste with as in the aroma a hint of dark chocolates, gives this beer a full bodied taste.

Dryish aftertaste with leftover roasted malts and dark chocolate tastes that leave a light almost chalky mouth feel on this full bodied beer.

Very drinkable with a good taste that doesn't over do anything but leaves you wanting another drink.

Poured from 16 oz can into nonic pint
BBD 12/05/13

A - pours a deep, dark brown with a huge khaki-colored three-finger head. Large bubbles dissipating with a nice lace

S - strong nutty flavor with oats and roastiness. Roasted barley comes to mind.maybe some pecan in there as well

T - bitter chocolate as well as that roasty malt flavor. A bit of coffee grounds on the back end. Really drinkable, goes down well, maybe due to the lower ABV

M - Surprisingly lighter feel for this type of beer. Medium bodied, not syrupy like some others. I like this one more and more.

O - this is a revisit and decided to review. Solid effort here from Tallgrass. I really like the "lighter" feel to this stout. I could drink this several times a day!

1 pint can poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pitch black color, completely opaque, with three fingers oatmeal-colored head that slowly dissolved into a nice lacing of foam that entirely covered the top of the beer. As the beer was drunk, the lacing turn into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very bready, very roasty. Lots of dark bread and cereal. Some subtle smoke from the roasting process of the malt. Finally, there’s some subtle coffee aroma’s too.

Taste: Like the aroma, very bready and very roasty. Like drinking a slice of pumpernickel bread if that makes sense. There’s a TON of roasted malt flavor up front, followed by some subtle coffee flavors. At the end there’s a very subtle sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium with a slight chewiness. Not as smooth as most cream/milk stouts that I’ve had, and with an ABV of only 5%, there is no alcohol present on the palate.

Overall: Damn, I really liked this stout. All of its subtleties really add up to a really damn fine stout!

Pint can drink by 7/24/14. into a FW Teku glass.

Pours a pitch black with a nice beige head about an inch and a half thick. Smell is typical cocoa and oats..slight vanilla and roasted malts. the taste starts out with a slight bit of vanilla then i get the chocolate and oaty flavors followed by nice roasted malts. very solid. mild body with mild carbonation.

overall its a spot on oatmeal stout. vanilla bean one is better, though this one is very very drinkable and sessionable!
