This Dark Horse stout pours an increadibly dark black color with purple hues and no head whatsoever. Looks like motor oil. Carbonation was lacking. Aroma is plums, charcoal, molasses, vanilla bean, and alcohol esters. Taste begins sweet with a chocolate syrup consistency. Fruity flavors, dark fruits, open this beer up esp when it gets warmer. Bitter chocolate comes then the finish is this really roasted grain astringency. I loved this beer but it finishes a little too harsh for my liking. I would also like some carbonation to liven up the mouthfeel. Nice and thick and rich, this could be really really good if they tweak a few things.
