4.35/5  rDev +15.7%

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. No freshness date.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/4 inch brown head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small side patch of surface foam.

S- Deep dark roasted malt with notes of dark chocolate, nuts and molasses. Almost smells barrel-aged with how intense it is plus the considerable booze fume.

T- Bitter dark roast and more chocolate. A bit sweet with the alcohol superbly hidden. The only thing making it not perfect is this slight metallic flavor in the aftertaste. Once the retained sediment in the bottle is introduced, the taste becomes even more chocolaty.

M- Semi-creamy with medium-low carbonation and the fullest of bodies.

O- This is dangerously drinkable and quite tasty.

Bottle is undated, probably 2.5 years old (late 2011). Bottlecap & seal are in great shape. Pours pitch black with a 1/2 finger dark brown, rusty head. Bubbly head dissipated quickly, revealing a viscous, glassy top. Smell is roasted malt, coffee, some bitterness or sourness. Pretty big nose, even when cold. Taste is tangy sweet up-front, reminiscent of berries. This immediately leads to a strong roasted malt flavor: coffee, dark chocolate. Farther back some sweetness, more roast, LOTS of roast. Finish is lots of lingering roast, some hop bitterness too. Mouthfeel is full, way thicker than I would expect, and decent carbonation. I haven't had this beer in a long time, and it exceeded my recollections. It's super-roasty which is this beer's calling card. There is sweetness and bitterness too that gives some complexity, but nothing over-the-top. I need to buy more.

A: Black liquid with a 1 finger head. The head is tan in color and has irregular and larger bubbles. The head did not last too long and thinned out to a film

S: Chocolate and malts.

T: A bit of a bitter start - like bitter chocolate. After that roasted malt flavor and not much else. As it warms there is a bit of sweet to the finish - which is nice.

M: Nice smooth feeling with a slight edge of carbonation. Well balanced and good overall feel.

O: This is just okay. Nothing sticks out to make it worth repeating. I bought several Dark Horse stouts at the same time and so far none of them have been noteworthy.

Bottle purchased from AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a dark black, with a pretty dark brown half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like roasted malt and milk chocolate.

The taste is similar. A little light, honestly, but still pretty tasty. Some good roasty flavor, a little bit of chocolate and coffee, and slight smoke.

Medium bodied, but thin for an oatmeal stout. No noticeable alcohol, medium carbonation, pretty drinkable.

Falls a bit short compared to other highly regarded oatmeal stouts, probably wouldn't get again. That being said, I still enjoyed it.
