Tallgrass Zombie Monkie Robust Porter

This is a 6.2% ABV porter from the Tallgrass Brewing Company of Manhattan, Kansas. If their beers are available to you, definitely give them a try if you haven't already, they have a very solid lineup. This "apocalyptic" beer is "relentlessly tasty" and "inspired by approximately true events," whatever that means. It will apparently inoculate you against zombies, so you better stock up.  The design on the can is raised and rough, it is called "tactical grip" and is to "prevent slippage while fleeing."  Good to have.

The beer pours a dense and pure black, even when held to the light. There is a tall, thick head of creamy light brown foam. The aroma is dark roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, mocha, and a bit of tang on the end, both metallic and creamy. The taste follows the aromas, coffee notes with the bitter finish that coffee would bring; dark chocolate notes, but with a creamy finish that milk chocolate would bring; and just a bit of charred wood in there. The finish is bittersweet, moderately dry and moderately bitter. 

I feel the zombie virus kicking in, I am now infected, but instead of searching for brains, I am searching for more Zombie Monkie porter…
