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.

This is a good beer. Out of the five seasonal stouts by Dark Horse I prefer the Fifth (obviously) and Thres. I'm glad I tried this though. A good oatmeal stout.

Continuing my Oatmeal Stout samplings. 4pk of Dark Horse - One Oatmeal Stout is nearly true to form for the style - straight up a decent oatmeal stout...just let it warm up to room temp though or you'll be disappointed.
A: Very dark chocolate brown with an inch thick cratered head - beautiful - except that it settled to a lacy head in short order. The retention was expected but lacking.
S: Roasted oats.
M: A little watery and less smooth than expected; not a lot of fullness. A mild amount of carbonation was noticed
T: nutty, roasted nuts and a mildly bitter aftertaste, that softened as it warmed.
O: I didn't let it sit long enough and the coolness impacted the first impression. As it warmed, the profile also expanded - the roasted oats and trailing bitterness softened (though not entirely) and blended fairly well. With the exception of the head retention - which would have helped expand the profile - and the bitterness, this held true to the basic style.
