This has a nice dark pour with a brown head to it. Immediately I could pick up the aromas of chocolate and coffee. The taste was very strong, tasted of roasted malts and coffee with hints of chocolate. The finish was a little on the bitter and smoky side. Left my mouth feeling a little dry. Not a bad brew, but I prefer others in the Dark Horse series.

12oz bottle poured into stout chalice. Black and opaque with a two finger tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is molasses, cocoa, coffee, and roasted malt. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, malt, and chicory bitterness. Medium body, thin texture, lively carbonation for a stout, and an astringent finish.

This is a well made oatmeal stout. I gave it decent numbers.. Jet black.. Nice aroma, nice taste! I think this stout should get better scores. But everyone's taste is different.

I'll drink bottle #2 of the four-pack tonight, and if the facts change I'll change my opinion. But bottle #1 has me disappointed in my purchase. As many reviews here echo my experience of the taste of this beer, though, I'm not hopeful. I bought this as a cheap substitute for my beloved Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout, and because the brewers are fellow Michiganders.

I drank from the bottle, I confess, so not much to say about the appearance except that it looked pretty chocolaty and dark against the off-white of the sink this morning.

From the first sniff it was clear drinking would be a chore. This beer tastes like Hopsy Cola. Almost a painful feel in the mouth. As someone once said of a basswood telecaster I will repeat about a highly hoppy stout--'It ain't right, I tell ya.' I will definitely try other stouts in Dark Horse's series, but probably won't be going back to square one.
