Thanks to muck4 for the opportunity to try this.

A: As you pour, the first thing that jumps out is how black One is. Completely opaque, even around the edges. Nice finger of mocha head, dense. Recedes quicker than expected, leaving behind light, spotty lacing and film around the edges.

S: I get mostly chocolate with coffee and burnt malt giving support. Pretty well balanced between chocolate sweet and coffee/char bitterness.

T: Largely follows the nose. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, maybe some anise and tobacco flavors as well. Tasty beer.

M: On the full side of medium and creamy.

O: I like this beer and it certainly stands tall amongst the other oatmeal stouts I've had.

A - Pours deep black with a one finger mocha head. Left minimal lacing.

S - Dark coffee, lots of chocolate, burnt malt.

T - A whole hell of a lot of dark coffee and chocolate up front, but no oatmeal. Bit sweet as well.

M - Slick medium body with moderate carbonation.

O - Overall, pretty solid, although a bit one dimensional. I'd have again.

The first thing I noticed was the nice smell of sweet milk chocolate emanting from the fresh pour. Had a definite taste combination of roasted oatmeal and coffee with slight lingering hints of chocolate. Warms you like a good winter warmer but without the abundant presence of alcohol taste. A robust beer that lingers nicely on the palate but is surprisingly smooth going down. Very drinkable beer.

Serving type: on-tap

I come home from work and I have two trade packages waiting for me...my day just got better. I get my "welcome home" kiss from my wife and she tells me that she is going to be making breakfast for dinner. Sounds ok to me. I sit the two boxes on the table and start digging into 'em. Mynie graciously threw this one in as an extra to our trade. Oatmeal Stout and breakfast...sounds perfect!

This one pours thick and black. There is a thin brown head that leaves a spot or two on the glass. I hold it up to the light just to check....nope, pitch black.

The aroma is of dark roasted malts...coffee, dark chocolate. There is a hint of the oats in here and some wood, charcoal, and alcohol. Smells like a cowboy breakfast to me.

The flavor has a lot of the coffee and dark chocolate. I get a bit of the burnt wood and the alcohol, also. Smoothing oatmeal finish helps to cool the burn from the alcohol and the bitter chocolate/espresso. There is a nice sweetness that passes through in the middle.

Full bodied. Creamy texture with a nice warmth to it. This is a nice morning sipper, if you're into that sort of thing. Good beer Dark Horse. Thanks, Tristan!
