3.2/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The color when poured in the pint glass was a dark brown with a load of tan foam and a medium amount of lace on the side of the glass. The smell of roasted malts and chocolate was evident in the aroma. The taste was of smokey roasted malts, chocolate with a hint of caramel. For a stout, to me, it was more in line of a porter. A little to sweet, but drinkable.

Tatonka stout. Nitro
A: two finger head. Dark with very little light getting through. Nice amount of lace.

S: more sweet than roasted. Lots of chocolate.

T: sweet on the front end but somewhat bitter finish. Flat taste. Not like your typical stout

M: full body. Flat nitro sensation

Overall: the aroma is great but the flavor may be flattened by the nitro tap. At 8.5 percent this is an unassuming alcohol loaded brew

My best would always be a 4.75 until I've tried all beers of 1 certain type. When that day comes , a 5 will be given.

In regards to Tatonka. I would have to say it has sparked my interest in Stouts once again. I use to drink Guiness in High School because I would not have to worry about my keystone/bud light drinking buddies stealing my beer. plus I really did enjoy the taste.

Tatonka has a bit more creamy texture which I cannot get enough of and a lovely coffee/ chocolate aroma thats one of a kind. May I also add its higher in alcohol than Guiness. Out of all the stouts I've tasted this is fighting st. Arnolds Pumpkinator for the #1 spot.

Had this at the Allen Texas brewpub. Served in a taster glass.

Somewhat light dark brown and an off white head.

Fruity maple syrup smell

Smoky toasty juicy nice complexity

Watery

Nothing here for me... Just not great...doesn't deliver according to style
