This is the first stout I have had from Dark Horse. It pours a dark black with a small light brown head. Pretty opaque and inviting.

It smells wonderful! Smokey at first, it transitions into a roasted barley aroma with chocolate and coffee notes.

The flavor of roasted barley and the oatmeal is on the other side of the teeter totter. There are also dark roasted coffee notes along with dark chocolate. This is my second review of this beer and I am liking this beer a lot less now.

The mouthfeel is good for what I look for in an oatmeat stout. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Not overly carbonated which lets the flavors roll over the palate on their own without interuption.

pretty Drinkable. I bought two 4 packs and the older it gets, the less I like it. Good beer but not anything to wow about.

Bonus bottle from amishland. Thanks!

This beer is quite thick and very fizzy. A crackling head erupts and fades quickly. Solid jet black, motor oil looks. Head is minimal. Smell is powerful! Tons of well roasted grain sweetness and some booziness. Great smell, very strong. Taste is powerful as well, dark roasted grains and amazing oat smoothness, lots of strong coffee and earth tastes. Just the right finishing tastes of very dark malts, bitter coffee and a slight alcohol warming.

Wow, what an amazing oatmeal stout! Dirty roasted, earthen tastes, perfect oat smoothness and chewiness. Almost no hops explicitly present, just tons and tons of hearty roasted malts. Delicious, fantastic beer.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

A - Opaque mahogany beer with a quarter inch of dense tan foam.

S - Moderately aromatic with notes of chocolate, vanilla, and molasses. A bit of coffee in the back.

T - Dark chocolate, molasses, and nuts. Little to no hop flavor with a somewhat aggressive (for the style) hop bitterness that blends well with the roasted grain. Some alcohol is present - not entirely unpleasant, but not really a positive contribution either.

M - Soft, medium-full body and very creamy. This is what oatmeal stout is all about.

D - This is a decent beer that could be quite good with a little less alcohol present on the palate. Otherwise, very nice.

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.
